248. Proactive, my ass. I haven't seen a "pragmatic progressive" or a "centrist" working a campaign ever
Not even for like minded candidates. Who was fighting their asses off are the same folks who have been in the trenches for decades that you spit on and blame for the failures of the halfassed Republicans you think the moon is hung on.

Who sat home are the same folks that always sit home during mid-terms aka young people, the politically disengaged, and a fair chunk of the minority vote. Add in your "centrists" that flipped back (for no sane reason seeing that what passed was more conservative than what they voted for and you have a pretty complete picture.

Did some disenchanted liberals say fuck it? I'm sure some did but most found a clothespin for their chapped noses and stuck with it, just like I did. Our turn out was good and we elected Democrats in my district and did all we could for Conway (who fucked himself with silly aquabuddah commercials and dumber drug warrior nonsense), so go puff up at someone else.
