these races

are always the same.

neck-in-neck for several hours,

and sometime after midnight some region/precinct that has been mysteriously quiet for eons[1] spits out the margin -- which is never for 'the people's candidate'.

[1] various issues: homeland security alerts, machine malfunctions

Democrats are the party of Reagan now

After the '80s, they have the Stockholm syndrome and now just love their former oppressor. The warriors are gone, retired, and the "New Democrats" have told progressives to STFU and get in line.

"Positions? We don't need no stinkin' positions! 'Anybody but a Republican' is our position! Show your colors, homies!"

Ciro was suppose to give them street cred...

Ciro was a pre-fab and an NDN pre-vetted homie invention of Emmanuel and Rosenberg.

See... we be down with the homies and he is Lat-teeen-O

Afterwhich, they would have free reign to bully and bludgeon the blogoshere into supporting Ms. Duckworth, Mr. Casey and any other DC Dem that they are supposedly fighting against... yunno crashing the gates all the way to a Casey victory.

Well something went wrong when the DC Dems (cough) Clinton (cough) and directed that Hackett be tossed from the boat... earlier Morrison went quietly when ordered but Hacket balked back. Then seeing the blog street boyos "back stab on demand" and throw Hackett under the bus... there was less of a rally for Ciro eventhough the NDN backed blogs ..blogswarmed their little hearts out for him ...even "outsiders" DFA came on board ... but to no avail.

Remember when Kos had a fundraising link for Cegelis right next to Testers... then quietly removed it and put up a "Fighting dems" front page for Duckworth... I guess this is Kos and Jeromes meaning of Crashing the Gate ... sweeping the progessives away from the party...

V is for vaht ever

Progressives/liberals have no choice

if they want their votes to count in the future, they have to be willing to withhold them now, ESPECIALLY after the treatment that their candidates have received. I might feel differently if there hadn't been all of the interference, if their had been a truly contested primary ... but ...

if you're in that district ... DO NOT VOTE FOR DUCKWORTH. Withhold your vote. STRIKE.
