Ratchet effect

I'm guessing the actual and desired effect of the WI recall efforts will be to lure a significant number of activists back into the D roach motel.

Yes, it's good to exercise the muscles organizing. It's a question of what happens next (and who owns the lists). And if you think any D operative is into any institution or organization other than one their own, think again. I mean, as party operatives, it's not their job to do anything other than build their party -- and one part of their job is headhunting effective activists, thereby decapitating the institutions to which those activists once belonged. Granted, the rot gets worse the higher you go, so you can convince yourself that local is better, and it is, but ask yourself where the money, the information, and the power flow, and the answer is toward the rotting head. Good luck...
