ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

The Twinkie-meister (Oliver Willis) Against his Left Flank

Oliver Willis (affectionately known here as the Twinkie-meister) makes this excellent post regarding the political reality of the rallies on Saturday and gets immediately lambasted by his left-flank.

That’ll Show Them!

Whew, I bet the Republicans are quaking in fear from Saturday’s protest in D.C. Surely now they’ll

1. End the war in Iraq
2. Free Mumia
3. Make love, not bombs
4. End the capitalist super hiearcrhy
5. End racism

Seriously, folks, can we get back to the real work of spreading the progressive message and end these useless noisefests?

Check out the comments, including one from some St Wendeler guy (if the link doesn't work, I apologize for Ollie's unwillingness to allow logic to persist on his blog):

Ollie, you should know better than to go against the Leftist Convential Wisdom. At least you recognize the problem that the Democratic Party will have with its Left flank… The protests won’t play in Peoria and it’s good that you recognize that. It’s a shame that many of your readers feel that you’ve betrayed them by pointing out such political realities.

So much for open debate, eh?

St Wendeler
