  •  We are Washington, like it or not. (0+ / 0-)

    Liberals want the federal government to actually DO THINGS like protect the environment, protect the poor from the abuses of the rich, and so on, and like it or not, the federal government and Washington, DC are inextricably associated in the minds of Americans.  That is why I am sad when people on liberal web sites say things like "(Washington is) an alien and distant city."  You can criticize things government agencies do (and often there is reason to do so, of course) and still not say this.  I've made this argument many, many times here on Daily Kos, and I wish I didn't have to.    

    "Optimism is better than despair." --Jack Layton, the late Canadian MP, liberal, and Christian.
