Why I'm Not A Democrat: Reasons #217 and #218
#217 from Atrios:
#218 is related, and is also from Atrios. He has a post
and comment thread that really annoyed me. It's about Dean's recent statements
, which are similar to what he's said in the past, about how he can't command his followers to line up and enthusiastically support another Dem candidate. Many people over at Eschaton are up in arms over that observation. I don't have time to go into it now, so just check out the thread and lemme know what you think.
Bottom-line for me: Dean is right, and all the hand-wringing is part of why I don't like parties in the first place. I'm suspicious of any group that espouses a pure faith.
