Robin Kestrel I like Barney Frank, and he makes a valid point that the right vote more consistently than the left. But he also seems content with the unfortunate fact that professional lobbying is far more effective than public protests, and that doesn't sit well with me.
Bort I don't know how content he is with it; the point with the NRA is that the NRA successfully mobilizes voters. They're sleazy as hell, but at the end of the day they know how to get people to show up on Election Day.
The Left is so terrified of becoming like them -- easily-manipulated masses -- that they err in the other direction and are easily manipulated into not supporting the Democrats. That has been the GOP's game for years, very openly so, and the Left falls for it every time.
dairyqueenlatifah I remember seeing a video years ago of some crazy fundie preacher claiming this guy was a pedophile that raped a bunch of little boys.
