42. As a person who is worried about our credibility...
the DLC is not what I am talking about. We should talk about what we believe in, but in a way that makes sense. We shouldn't forward nutty theories, but that doesn't mean we should cave into the other side.

There is difference between compromising and selling out. The DLC has sold out. They aren't interested in forwarding our cause through the legislative process, they start out supporting Republican talking points. People who are full-on Democrats, but willing to compromise, start out representing our interests all through the legislative process, but agree to a compromise to get at least some of what we want.

That is why the DLC is bad. I don't mean to support them when I say we should moderate the conspiracy theory talk, I mean to support our credibility with the American people.

The pukes are going to twist whatever we say, but shouldn't make their job easier.
