I remember when Rush Limbaugh launched "Operation Chaos" to throw the 2008 Democratic primary into turmoil. The hue and cry from the left was loud and vigorous. As well it should have been. It was a bald-faced attempt to subvert democracy in America.
And now Daily Kos is throwing it's heavy weight into a similar effort? Really? SERIOUSLY?
I am astonished at this. It's beyond the pale. We're not only better than this, we KNOW better than this. This will accomplish nothing. The GOP is doing a fine job of imploding on their own. A misguided attempt by the most powerful progressive website in the world doesn't change that equation at all.
By launching this, you remove yourself from any future debate about whether it's okay or not to interfere with another political party's elections. And THAT is a huge mistake.
And, Michigan? Really? Are you guys aware that Romney is tanking against Santorum in Michigan already? Two polls have him well behind. Why spend precious electoral financial resources on something that's already happening?
I keep waiting for the "just kidding" front page post. Somebody had to have spiked the Daily Kos office water cooler.
I refudiate this.
Delete this fucking plan, Kos!!!
