14. Another kind of "purity test" that we cannot afford to bow to right now

Of course Democrats want a pure as driven snow, every Democratic candidate. No past mistakes, going back decades even. No prejudices when you were a young, growing, and learning person.

But right now, we must accept and defend even a flawed Democrat. Of course there are limits. But our purity test has to be somewhat relaxed in this age where the other side, for one, is worse, and two doesn't give a shit about the issue other than to push over the first domino and watch as we crawl all over ourselves to be the first to demand resignation!
