From the "Sad but true" file.

Will Durst...
Conservatives know the importance of banding together to do whatever it takes: lie, cheat, steal, obstruct. Progressives, on the other hand, need to be goosed to get off the couch when it’s on fire.
I'm afraid so.

Hat tip to Gordon, who has an extended excerpt of the rant. I might not say it the same way myself, but...

If Barrack Obama were not elected president, I would be more concerned about the "enthusiasm gap". But we did elect him, so we got off the couch. There will be changes in the legislature, but I seriously doubt a GOP tsunami. Motivating the electorate has always been a midterm challenge. Democrats have been prematurely lambasted for not caring. Like I said, we call him President Obama.

I share your doubts about Republican prospects, or optimism about Democratic ones, if you will, but there is an element that views themselves as a left opposition, as it were, to the Party. Folks who always refer to the Party in the third person, for instance. At any rate, they seem to expect a certain level of obesiance in return for their presumably invaluable support.

Hope they get aboard, but it means a lot more for folks like you and I to get their neighbors out to vote, and out to vote right.
