    The infighting between factions that consistently cripples the left (whatever that is) continues with more Holier Than Thou assertions.

    Look what that has done.

    It’s imperative that voters let our elected officials and candidates know when they screw up – and also when they do well.

    If all we do is heap praise and ignore their errors, they learn that they can make mistakes (or purposely screw us) without consequence.  The idea that valid criticism is “infighting” or a “circular firing squad” is an old canard that should be put to rest.

    but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
    and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
    more deadly than his right had been.
