An e-mail about the Arkansas primary contains the phrase:

...Democrats who side with corporate interests to block President Obama's agenda

Do we have a Department of Impossible Things Before Breakfast?

No votes yet

That's Marshall's statement about Rand Paul, the son of Ron Paul, who just won the Republican nomination to run for the Senate here in KY.

If not, why not? Since he became a Dem he's voted with Obama almost 100% of the time. So isn't he officially "good" then?

Movein.Org must have a Lib-Be-Gone! Dispensary in their office. They are a pathetic shell of what they once were - yet another great organization ruined by Obama and his Party enablers.

perhaps, but instead of "party enablers" I would label them Party Embalmers to more accurately describe their role vis a vis the Democratic party, or if you prefer, FDP.

On the other hand, perhaps you meant to imply there is now an 'Obama Party'? Perhaps, but my crystal ball is still cloudy on the future of any such party.

Actually, I am just feeling impish. Election results here in Oregon reveal that a nearly 7 ft tall former professional basketball player, whose fame included never being able to sink a free throw, is the Republican nominee for Governor. Oh, and most of the time he never bothered to vote.

They are relatively bright people who are well informed (at least the leaders who clear the MoveOn emails, they do go through lawyers). I think this sort of email needs to be considered with that in mind. That doesn't lead to very nice conclusions, however.
