  •  So why all of a sudden this assault on Pelosi? (5+ / 0-)

    No one in the House comes more progressive or liberal than Nancy Pelosi, who I might add brought it home for Democrats every time when she had the gavel as Speaker.

    You need to go find a better target.  Might I suggest a Republican for a change?  You could start with Boehner.

    In the time it took Adam Lanza to reload, eleven children escaped. What if...

    •  One person's "assault" (5+ / 0-)

      is another person's 1st Amendment.

      When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...

    •  There are plenty of people (6+ / 0-)

      in the house more progressive and liberal than she is,

    •  Because our special attack is the circular firing (4+ / 0-)

      squad.

      Others say that this will "force" her to do something.  I think the only thing it'll do is "force" her to recognize that the only consistent support she can count on for the DCCC is "third way" or DLC types, which is precisely the opposite of what we want.

      General elections may be going better for Dems but, to be frank (who?  who's Frank?), we've still got to stop devouring our own.

      Wanna protest?  Make someone's life and job difficult?  Get on your local news?  Find a Republican, any House member will do.  G-d knows that there are far too many Republican House members, thanks to 2010.  Protest Cantor's or Boehner's fundraisers, you'll still get local TV coverage AND you can support the Democratic party at the same time.  It's the house (and House) special - two for the price of one!

      This is one of the reasons (perhaps second only to gerrymandering) that holding the House is so hard for us - we're too busy with the intramural brawls to remember which direction the proverbial enemy is in.

      Unless folk believe that the Democrats are the enemy, which I think many here do believe.  But I'm still a "more and better Dems" kind of guy, and this kind of action supports neither of those goals.

      •  Consider me to be among your "stop devouring (0+ / 0-)

        your own", contingency.  Otherwise, this site is headed for the FDL route of the bullies taking over.
