20. 1994 didn't have net roots and progressive radio and television.
Edited on Fri Aug-27-10 04:03 PM by Hansel
Two completely different times. There was no way in 1994 to efficiently rally progressives. It's far past time for those with the blogs and microphones to get to work on that.

Also, even the MSM doesn't seem to be as sympathetic to the right wingers recently as they have been in the past. More and more are openly critical of the divisive tactics being used on the right. And, in 1994 the Republican party was not at war with itself.

There is absolutely no comparing 1994 to 2010. Completely different animals.
