Liberal Blockheads At Netroots Nation

It’s fair to say that some conservatives expect too much out of Republicans from liberal states or districts, but only the complete blockheads would go this far,

Markos Moulitsas, founder of the Daily Kos blog and an organizer of the first such annual conference five years ago, said he and his followers are disinclined to help Democratic candidates simply to preserve the party’s big majorities.

“There’s a lot of Democrats I’ll be happy to see go,” Moulitsas said in an interview. “I’ll celebrate when Blanche Lincoln is out of the Senate. There is a price to be paid for inaction and incompetence. We’re not getting much done with 59 [Democratic senators], so if we’re down to 54, who cares?”

Moulitsas went on to suggest that a smaller Democratic majority in the House might be better for advancing a more progressive agenda. “If 20 Blue Dogs lost their seats, nobody’s going to care,” he said. “That’s their problem and I’m not going to cry about them. To me, a more cohesive caucus might be a better deal moving forward than one in which the Blue Dogs need to be appeased.”

It was understandable when conservatives were angry after the Bush years. They felt like the GOP had the House, the Senate, and the presidency and conservatism still went backwards. Government got bigger, spending went up, and the only major piece of conservative legislation that was passed were tax cuts with an expiration date.
