      The only way we can make them care is to find some good "moderate" Dems to run against them in their districts.
      Which means it is on us to try to winnow out the "Blue dog" whores to Wall Street and find good-faith moderate/cons. whom we can somewhat trust to be what they bill themselves as.
      We had a good one in 2010 in my district, who billed himself as a "frugal progressive". He was big on clean energy and supported health care reform. Unfortunately he couldn't get enough money for yard signs or bumperstickers.

      You can't make this stuff up.
