Response to Cha (Reply #28)

58. You're correct, Cha ...

You're correct, Cha ... in some states, some regions, some counties, some cities... candidates who run as Democrats need to strategically adjust if they hope to win. I've got no problem with that. It's a fact of life, a fact of politics, it's what we have to do in order to pursue, capture or maintain a majority. (Look at West Virginia, for instance. Ugh! Personally, I'm not thrilled with him, but-hey, you know what... I also live in the REAL WORLD and I'm mature enough to accept reality and to be happy for what we have.)

In any case... that's not the point... what TRULY bugs the living shit out of me is the duplicity, the double-standard where someone who clearly IS NOT progressive, gets to be characterized that way. Contrast that with the VERY REAL POSSIBILITY that the DEMOCRATS could have had ONE EXTRA VOTE IN CONGRESS (right now, TODAY!!) and our party's "outreach" fell flat on its face... not giving a whit about it.

I mean, seriously now! Come on! WTF is going on?? Why would someone with Ossoff's progressive creds be dismissed and ignored like that? This is especially disturbing considering what's actually at stake and what we COULD HAVE HAD, right now, in hand... without having to do a run-off.

I'm just not seeing the wisdom in any of these decisions. How can our party expect to make gains if the "outreach" is so sporadic and unpredictable?

Heaven help us all.
