Stupidest career "progressives" on the face of the earth

They had done so well pushing the GOP to make specific spending cuts, something Boehner clearly didn't want to do. And then they unilaterally and for no obvious reason decided to bail the GOP out. Inexplicable.
Oh ha ha. It's entirely explicable if you regard both legacy parties as completely in thrall to the rentier class -- their only real differences being those driven by the class and cultural markers of their respective oligarchical factions -- and united in the single goal of wrecking the New Deal and culling the herd wiith the resulting rawther unevenly distributed drop in life expectancy. Shit, Obama even told them:
"[OBAMA] The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be considered a moderate Republican.*
He has to say that! 11 dimensional chess! But the Republicans are mean! He's only the President, he's practically helpless!
NOTE I'm being extremely generous with Kos, calling him stupid. Because the alternative is that he's part of Obama's cynical, death-dealing long con.
NOTE * Showing Obama's deftness at concealing the Big Lie within a smaller lie. Even Richard Nixon didn't assassinate U.S. citizens with drone strikes, or openly claim that due process was satisfied if he got the big thumbs up from a pet lawyer. ("If the President does it, that means it is not illegal" came after Nixon left office.) Even Ronald Reagan prosecuted thousands of bank executives for accounting control fraud. Obama has prosecuted zero.
