93. We have so few voices from the left
Edited on Wed Dec-23-09 03:11 PM by Generator
So very few. It's so insulting that you and others actually think she's doing it to be "popular" to get on t.v. That is so fucking insulting. Is that what Markos Daily Kos is doing it for too? He's against the bill. Is that why Howard Dean does it-to be popular? No, he's hated by the beltway. He now says pass the bill. I am not against him because I don't agree with him. I believe he believes what he believes. She has been taking on Lieberman which is more than anyone can say of Obama.

Your post is superficial. Jane Hamsher had breast cancer and the health insurance nightmare become a reality to her. She's doing it because she believes in what she's doing and wants to save lives. What do you believe in besides Obama? Seriously,. Who are you people that the second others have a little bit of publicity to criticize your great leader that suddenly all the voices on the left are the enemy?

Firedoglake was a light in the darkness for many years under Bush. And all you can do is trash the light.
