This is not a post-debate reaction post


This is not a post-debate reaction post. I figure if you cared about the debate then you already watched it.

The bad news: There are a bunch more debates coming.

The good news: Unless Sarah Palin joins the race, we won’t be live-blogging any more debates for a while.

The better news: We will be live-blogging the NFL season opener tonight.

The best news: This will be an Obama-free zone from 7 pm – 12 am eastern (4 pm – 9 pm pacific)

    Hmmmmm Well, thanks for live blogging last night! I thoroughly enjoyed the comments and insights from the posters her. I understand it’s a lot of work for you, but I appreciate that you did it. 🙂

    Maybe we should start a klown liver fund. 🙂
    Hey, this is the first time in years that I’ve clicked on a kos link but this is a pretty good rant by Blue Tex (I don’t remember the guy). Via a c4p comment.
    It’s long but I’ll quote the 1st 3 paras:

    First of all I will say what I please as I don’t view you as the end all of Democratic discussion. I too agree with voting for Democrats. That is why Obama will never again get my vote. I have been around the block long enough to see Pubs steal populism, while we worry about fringe issue debates. We have lost the economic trust of the American people and deservedly so. I am an American before a Democrat.

    If a real labor party is needed nothing you say will stop it. Ban away Bud, but your power is symbolic. You don’t scare me and your cavalier attitude towards free speech is abhorrent. Your petulance is emblematic of the new power base of this party, and I have better things to do, like elect real Democrats who care about jobs, not Trojan Horse pseudo intellectuals who think a stint at Harvard and the willingness to compromise make a leader. The true political war is coming, dear sir, and you will be shocked to find out who your true friends are. Ban away, terrorize the site, I could care less. Enjoy the crickets, as that may be all to be heard here. You elect your new and better neo-liberals, the New Dealers like me will be back with a different label.

    I have watched my party devolve from a party of hard working laborers of all backgrounds, into a morass of self righteous freaks who lather themselves in the rhetoric of progress as defined solely by them. People who would throw away years of work on health care for purity, who would allow preteens to get abortions without parental consent, and who mock my God and those who would support Him. Yes I said it. I can be a Christian Democrat. The idea that someone prays or wants to wear a cross is somehow against the rigid secular tenets of the party. I don’t stand for that. Most mainstream Americans don’t. I stand for real values, the real values of FDR, Truman, and Kennedy, and to a lesser extent, Clinton. I stand for putting paychecks into people’s hands, not excuses. I stand for the radical notion that minorities don’t need paternalism to survive, they need safe streets and opportunity. I stand for education that puts children first, and I stand for a fair trade policy that creates jobs. I stand for heath care, not corporate giveaways that mandate junk coverage, but real health care, that covers everybody through progressive taxation. I stand for not being called a nut because I pray, and the right to scoff at science when I see fit. I stand for solving global warming but not banning away our way of life to do it. I stand for labor before gay marriage, and peace before war. I stand for parental authority, and teacher accountability. I stand also, for freedom, for the right to eat what I want, wear what I want and drive what I want. If you want to change someone, educate them. It is how we achieve reform in America and the hipster Berkeley fueled paternalistic nanny stating has to go, because, in case you did not get the point, I stand for America.

      I read it. I also skimmed the remarks. The comments clearly show that the Kossites are unable to comprehend a different viewpoint. Their entire being is wrapped up in superiority, elitism, and shouting down any variance in their orthodoxy. I am not being snarky when I wonder about their mental health. It seems quite fragile.

      • votermom says:

        I looked at the comments too. It was like the post was written in alien hieroglyphics.

        • Mimi says:

          Even that slimeball weinie Kos has turned on Obama and the cognitive dissonance sufferers give him hiding marks or whatever they call them. The Democrats are looking at annihilation, basically ceasing to be a national party with only support in some regions. The diary is clearly a call for a socially moderate labor centered populist party to replace the Dems. That would be anathema to the elite wannabes of the Obama party. The elites are already backing off from the One because he cannot get the votes irregardless of how much money he raises or how dirty he plays. The tipping point was last week and he cannot untip it.

    Jeralynn found a Democratic memo to the 12-man committee supporting raising the Medicare age from 65 to 67. She has now given Obama his “pink slip,” saying she won’t donate or support or vote for him.

    What took her so long?

    • Mary says:

      Sidebar: Apparently Digby’s not there yet. Still providing her followers with daily red meat, slamming all the Repubs last night as “crazy,” avoiding looking at how much Obama sucks as a Democrat. I think she’s stuck.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Yeah, just like “Joe Biden will be a deal-breaker. Oh, nevermind.”

    • elliesmom says:

      Don’t count on Jeralyn just yet. She’s drawn lines in the sand before and then jumped over them. I so want to comment on her saying that she is going on Facebook to recruit people born in 67 and 68 to get them to boycott voting for Obama. Why doesn’t she just invite all of the PUMAs she “asked to leave” her blog to come back? But that would involve a recipe for crow.
