20. Here is an example of a post that damns Democrats with faith praise...
Edited on Mon Oct-18-10 11:25 PM by TomCADem
It seems to paint the Democrats in a pretty broad brush:

While I may agree with respect to someone like Ben Nelson or Blanche Lincoln, are they really representative of most Democrats in Congress? Also, Joe Lieberman is not even a Democrat. Yet, they are often cited on DU as somehow being representative of most Democrats, and therefore all Democrats are quasi-Republicans.

So, I always have to wonder whether someone who really believes that most elected Democrats are quasi-Republicans is really a Democrat?

If you accept the premise that Democrats don't really represent Democratic ideals, couldn't you argue that Republicans have similar strayed from the ideals laid down by Lincoln?
