  •  Interesting to note that at least two (5+ / 0-)

    front pagers commented in this diary, which is at minimum clearly a thoughtful one, but neither found it worthy of a respectful "rec'd for discussion" or even a tip.

    In my mind, that plays well into the diary's point about where we stand in relation to each other here on dkos.

    I suppose neither of them wanted to be perceived as reccing the thesis to those who would find that distasteful. I suppose it's understandable, given the dynamics here.

    But maybe this is just me, and how my mind works. I tend to notice these peripheral things.

    In this regard neither the attitude of "Obama rox" nor the nonexistent unity of "Obama sux" will suffice.  We might start to ditch the "Obama rox/ Obama sux" nonsense by clarifying where we in fact stand, rather than obscuring our positions with side-arguments.
