60. "Prior to enlisting in the Army, Moulitsas was a member of the Republican Party."

During the 1988 presidential election, he served as a Republican precinct captain and assisted with the re-election campaign of Illinois Congressman Henry Hyde. However, during his time in the military Moulitsas began a transition in his political philosophy that would lead him to change his party affiliation from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markos_Moulitsas

Perhaps this transition in "political philosophy" was simply bullshit, and Markos realized that he could be more effective at bringing about a more RW nation by pretending to be a Centrist Democrat, and focus his efforts on swinging the Democratic Party as far to the right as possible.

Who knows? If this is not the case, than he obviously never understood the core ideology of the Democratic Party.

This condition often explains the hatred that "Third Way" party plants express for progressive Democratic Party legislators.

This has been an enormously successful tactic for the GOP since the Reagan era.

Maybe their greatest triumph to date.

I'm so sick of former republicans bringing their RW shit into the Democratic Party and then working so hard to make our party more like the GOP.

Most never get what being a Democrat really means. Ed Schulz, Hillary Clinton, and Stephanie Miller are rare exceptions.
