Go read Glenn now. Trust me, you'll find it of interest.
If only someone had thought to point out at the time that Obama wasn't running as a progressive! What the hell was I thinking?
I love the piece, Glenn. But, erm, about this part...
Early on in the primary cycle, Markos Moultisas -- in a post I recall vividly though can't find -- wisely urged that progressives refrain from endorsing or supporting any of the Democratic candidates unless they work for that support, make promises and concessions important to the progressive agenda, etc., lest progressives' support end up being taken for granted. But that advice was largely ignored.
Would you have written this about the Titanic?
Early in the transatlantic trip, Captain E. J. Smith -- in a ship's log entry I recall vividly though can't find -- wisely urged that we steer clear of icebergs. But that advice was largely ignored.
The irony, it burns!
