In re: US Dem primary politics -

look, I'd like to reform campaign finance every bit as much as the next girl - but through policy changes that hold everyone accountable, for fuck's sake, not through weird purity-politics critiques of successful current left fundraising tactics!

I'm fast reaching a point of being convinced that the entire system needs the kind of overhaul that is a remove-and-replace. Yet, what do you replace it with?

I am hearing more and more clamor for a constitutional convention, but it's coming from the staunch, die-hard traditionalists. Honestly, I don't think our country could ever manage another one, anyway, given how divisive we are on EVERYTHING.

So it's a matter of plodding along, and trying to pick the best of the worst.

Leftist purity that takes the form of refusing to help support any other leftists, particularly down-ticket, is pretty damn unappealing. There's a weird libertarian-ish vibe from a lot of that rhetoric, idk.
