46. you threw a dig in at the DLC that had nothing to do
with the point of your thread.

That is a gratuitiously divisive thing to do and I'm asking you to stop in the interests of party unity. Please.

Criticize Al From and the DLC if you feel the need, but at least do it in the context of whatever point it is you're trying to make. To say that not donating to the DNC would please "Al From and Bruce Reed" was uneccesary in making your point.

This war between Howard Dean and the DLC has got to end if we expect to move forward and win elections. Both the DLC and DFA have worked to elect Democrats, they're on the same side.

Besides, From's statement seems to be a (qualified) one of support - I don't understand why it offends you.
