When, when, when will the Democrats learn? From 1972 & McGovern's loss to Tricky Dick through Obama, they have consistently capitulated to the center & the right, only to be rebuffed each time. As Cohen so clearly points out, the sexual counterrevolutionaries--you know, those freaks (yes, I said freaks) who simply cannot stand that women should be able to make their own decisions about their bodies and lives and that gays are, in fact, citizens of the United States & deserve the exact same civil rights as their heterosexual counterparts--have been working for over forty years to turn back the clock to the 1950s & the Ozzy & Harriet-style nuclear family, which never really existed (except in their warped minds) anyway.

They are a minority of Americans, predominantly older (way older...what a shame), & Republican, yet the Democrats continue to think that by playing by their rules, they somehow will fall into their good graces. They won't. In a paraphrase of Keith Olbermann's single best Special Comment a few years ago, They (the counterrevolutionaries) are still going to call you (the Democrats) bad names. Therefore, Dems, take control of the game before its too late...your values ARE the values of the majority of Americans, despite the lies spewed by the right.
