Bad Day, Just Time For A Short Comment Whore: posted earlier on a thread at Echidne of the Snakes in slightly differen form

There are more sitting leftists and liberals in the Democratic Caucus of the House of Representatives today than all of the third parties have managed to elect in their collective histories. I'll leave the Democratic Party when John Lewis, Sheila Jackson Lee, Barney Frank, Jerold Nadler, George Miller, Dennis Kucinich, etc. decide it isn't worth it anymore.

When I hear people say that it isn't worth it to vote I remember something that Callie Crossley once said in a discussion about whether or not journalists should vote. In essence it was that people had their blood shed, given their lives so she could vote. There was no way that she was going to not exercise the right they had won for her with their lives.

I'll add that with the Green candidate for the Senate in Pennsylvania acting as a spoiler to let Santorum eke out a narrow victory WITH MONEY AND HELP FROM REPUBLICANS, that's the party I'm through with. They're always taunting the Democratic Party for being Republican lite but they're the ones taking money from Republicans and getting Republicans elected.
