A Day Without Bitching Is Like A Day Without Sunshine

Hey, you know what would be the awfullest thing ever?  If we got single-payer healthcare, EFCA, ENDA, gay marriage, strong financial and environmental regulations, an end to the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, and prosecutions for all of BushCo’s criminals.  Why, us backseat bitchers wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves and would all become very sad.

So, to sum up Tweety’s argument:

o The netroots don’t really have anything substantive to complain about, we just complain for the sheer joy of complaining.

o The netroots never actually take any kind of action, just sit around and complain.  (Now, if he wanted to argue that we’re not nearly as effective at moving Congress or Obama than multimillion-dollar corporate donors and Fox News, I would probably have to concede that point.)

o The netroots know nothing about governance or campaigning, even though many of its members have run for office and/or worked in government for years.

o The people who actually do run our country have an abundance of both the desire and the knowledge to govern it, and are not just facilitating its continued looting by the aforementioned multimillion-dollar corporate donors.

o As usual, the Village and our professional political class are Serious; the netroots are Not.

That about cover it?
