Angela Michael is further to the right of Shimkus on abortion and has not taken any position whatsoever on any other political issue.

Subby, If you had bothered to read the article or visit Angela Michaels website you would see that she is a one issue candidate. and she is a rabid anti-abortionist.

BillCo: FTFA (in bold no less): Angela Michael is not a legitimate candidate for public office.

Well, that settles it then. Obama is automatically reelected as President and Sara Palin has to swim to Russia.

Your blog sucks.


If you'd read more than just the bold you'd see it's a pretty compelling argument. But it was rather nice of Kos to make your lazy threadshiatting even easier for you. You should be grateful.

I think the main concern is that she has NO other stances.

If all anyone cares or works on is abortion, they won't be fit for public office -- as there is more to representing your district then ONE social issue.

BravadoGT: coeyagi: twat_waffle: It's not like the Kos kids have a history of activism to turn the Democratic Party further to the left...

You mean, away from the center which is where the GOP has dragged them? Lemme see if I can find a Kleenex for you...

Remember when it was ok to be a pro-life Democrat? Nowadays, you might as well declare yourself a child molester for the scorn that will be heaped upon you...

I love how not being lockstep with your party is a "fail." Conservatives really can't comprehend that people from the same party can disagree on issues. It's incredible.

When a candidate only has one position, then, yeah, it's hard to cite more than one reason for your disagreement with him or her.

And Randall Terry is currently running for President as a Democrat. So I guess the Daily Kos should take his candidacy seriously too, huh?

Mithiwithi: The One True TheDavid: Philip Francis Queeg:

a pro-life Democrat is Senate Majority leader.

Hence the right to abortion continues to become more and more endangered.

Democrats should be as offended by that as Republicans would be by a pro-choice Republican. Unless, of course, there's really not enough difference between those parties to justify more effort to choose than flipping a coin.

Let's be clear. The problem isn't that Harry Reid is pro-life; he's in Utah, and a Utah Democrat has to be right of center of the national party if he wants to get elected. The problem is that the Majority Leader is pro-life.

I really hope the Dems don't lose the Senate this year, but there's a silver lining - if we do lose it, it'll be a prime opportunity to pick a leader for the Senate caucus who isn't going to keep dragging Senate Dems even further to the right.


A hundred times THIS. I was adamant that they should have thrown Reid out on his ass (as majority leader, not out of the Senate) the day he was re-elected. The man cannot get through his thick skull that he is not going to change the Republican obstruction by capitulating and moving further and further to the right.

If either of these dupes had any balls at all, they'd run third party. The fact that they're abusing the Machine to get their anti-woman agenda out there shows just how big a problem the Machine is, and just how much a part of the problem they are.

The One True TheDavid: When the non-fascist Republican candidates kept lost resoundingly not only here but elsewhere I gave it up. Now I'm back to being a non-voting purist. That might change when America is ready for democracy, if that's can ever happen.


Democracy IS compromise. You are saying we don't have a democracy because there is no candidate you like enough. That's how democracy works. You get 50+% to compromise on a person it's not going to be someone everybody wants. I am glad you don't vote.

The One True TheDavid: A couple or three ago years I registered as Republican so I could vote for the bad guy's opponents in the Primaries. My criteria were that they had to support free speech and separation of church and state, oppose the ongoing wars and support women's right to abortion. If that was too tall an order I made abortion rights the most important factor, Kentucky being in "Jesusland."

When the non-fascist Republican candidates kept lost resoundingly not only here but elsewhere I gave it up. Now I'm back to being a non-voting purist. That might change when America is ready for democracy, if that's can ever happen.

I still say the way to restore the USA is to push the Republican party as far to the left as you possibly can. Ignore the Democrats: leftists have been trying that with them since the New Deal and look where it got us -- a "socialist" President whose policies are way to the right of Nixon's.

It would be better if a few states or parts of states seceded into their own new country. For a start several million citizens to the left of center might colonize North Dakota and implement a progressive system there.

But if y'all insist on keeping on like you have you can do so without my participation. Regardless of which candidate is worse I refuse to vote for ANY evil.

Unless of course the right to abortion is so endangered that my moral code demands my sacrifice.


CSB, so basically YOU need to run since you are the only one who can conform to YOUR principles and not be "evil".

But I thought the Democrats were supposed to be different than those evil, Nazi Republicans? I thought the Democrats were tolerant of diverse opinions, cultures and attitudes? But now all you can say is essentially ""But the Republicans...." (i.e. "We're no different than Republicans when it comes to one-issue litmus tests?")

Congratulations, pat yourself on the back.


Why is it wrong to berate a single-issue candidate for being as dense to think that abortion needs to be on the list of problems that need fixing now? The issue was settled decades ago, and yet here we are now still talking about it. Our national livelihood is being choked to death... but lets keep the focus on the uterus. That is sound policy.

Yep, the Democrats are just exactly like the Republicans in their intolerance for differences of opinion on abortion.

That's why a pro-life Democrat is Senate Majority leader.

Rapmaster2000: I'm not sure what it is, but there's something about this headline that totally sucks. It's not funny, it has the "teh" thing from 2003, and it uses the word "blasts" which is a hyperbolic tabloid verb used to grab the attention of retards.


I also like the description of the author as a diarist, implying that she is only writing for herself/himself. I am surprised that Democrat wasn't spelled Dem-o-rat.
