Would netroots know a good Democrat if they saw one?

Paul Rosenberg

I had intended to write a more elaborate diary this weekend about extra-party institution building, but there’s a certain power in just keeping things simple–and nothing could be more simple than pooling our money and refusing to support the Democrats without getting real power in return. That’s how the corporate special interests play the game, and we’re simply chumps if we continue making ourselves utterly irrelevant by giving them money no matter what.

And just who controls that pool? Those same netroots geniuses who gave us Patrick FISA-abuse Murphy? Those same progressives who gave us Webb and Obama?

I really don’t know what to do.
