38. I have, thanks.
I'm really disappointed by this "it's just the way it is, donate a ton of money if you don't like it" attitude I'm seeing.

As members of this site, even donating members, we are not allowed to say anything that so much as has a whiff of advocacy for a third-party or Republican candidate. That has been made very clear, and I'm okay with that as a site rule. But, is it then too much to ask DU to take steps to remove an ad that calls the Democratic congressman from WV a terrorist sympathizer?

Well, apparently it is, I guess. Jeeze.
