Corrente

If you have "no place to go," come here!

PB1.0 has always been at war with postpartisanship

So, people like us actually exist? Who knew?

"Many people in the liberal blogosphere were not that close with the Obama campaign during this race. He was seen as the post-partisan candidate, while many people on the blogs wanted a more partisan kind of activism.

All I recall hearing from the MSM was that a few wacky Hillary fanatics were stealth McCain supporters.

And all I recall from the A-listers was that Obama excreted magic water and that Corrente had jumped the shark.

Did you hear this Sturm und Drang about Obama throwing progressives under the bus from the Village or the crypto-Village? Nope, me either.

Oh, and things are scrolling off fast, so do make a point to See What Glenn Said. You don't want to miss it.

did a single high traffic blog even mention Corrente? 'cause I don't remember it.

TalkLeft, for example. And we're on plenty of blogrolls still.

But as far as affecting the trajectory of the discourse? Not a chance.

I read on FDL that Jane said: "He may, however, be the most progressive person we could have possibly hoped to elect as President of the United States." That's just not true. Clinton was distinctly to the left of Obama on domestic issues (e.g., UHC, FISA), particularly on the economy, her strength.

this? Just for yuks?

"She did not do any heavy-lifting with foreign governments, whether they were friendly or not. She never managed a foreign policy crisis, and there is no evidence to suggest that she participated in the decision-making that occurred in connection with any such crisis."

They elected someone who didn't even have her lack of "heavy-lifting with foreign governments, whether they were friendly or not."

Pretty funny.
