7. Speaking of which....
I saw this thread just a little ways down the Latest page from this post:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

This is an example of the kind of attitude that is causing the problems here. Not only toward GLBT, although we were an obvious first target, but toward everyone who has issues that are important to them that the "rah-rah squad" wants to downplay/ignore, or just doesn't care about.

I have to go searching through my old hard drive backup from my movie theater and see if I can find the essay I wrote the week before the 2004 election opining that the Democrats were not prepared for success. Some of us have seen this coming from a long way off; our greatest strength as a party (our diversity, especially of opinion) is also our greatest weakness.
