91. I'm so glad that's your final point.
They've all been too blunt to leave any kind of mark.

Sorry. I'm not playing ball; it's not a game to me. I'm not going anywhere. I'll be right here, and I'll be doing everything in my power to hold corrupt Democrats accountable, and to elect better Democrats to office.

That's not tripe, and it's for the good of all people. So much broader than the purging of all "ilk" that don't march in your line.

Du rules? Haven't broken any yet. I won't campaign against the Democratic candidate in the general election on DU. That would be a waste of time and energy, and would truly be "pointless." At that point, time at DU won't be spent campaigning for any candidate, but on discussing issues and policy. I will, though, make sure that Democrats know that their choices in the primary have consequences in the general election. That's the responsible thing to do.
