It's like being stuck in the airport with a bunch of zealous Christian missionaries

Being a progressive right now, that is. "Just accept Kerry into your heart, and your troubles will disappear. Satan Nader will tempt you with peace and health care and economic justice and fair trade, but that's how the devil works. Give yourself to John, and have faith."

I'm referring to MoveOn, Michael Moore, Barbara Ehrenreich, and others, including, sadly, Dennis Kucinich.

An independent from Pennsylvania answers Ehrenreich's It's Over Ralph op-ed with his own: It's Over Barb. Excerpt:
It's a sad day when one of the best-known liberals in America shills for a billionaire war hawk. It's sadder still when she writes a well-regarded book on poverty then turns around to skewer a man fighting for the living wage and universal healthcare on behalf of a man who voted for No Child Left Behind and welfare "reform."
