Supporting the Democratic Ticket
The primaries are over. Sen. Barack Obama and Joe Biden are our nominees.
This is a historic day for the Democrats and for Denver. TalkLeft fully supports the Democratic ticket. I've resolved my conflicts and will both vote for as well as support Obama-Biden in 2008. A Republican-led Justice Department and a Supreme Court with another right-wing ideologue would be the worst possible outcome for me.
If you are unhappy with the ticket, I'm sorry. But, this is a blog, and it's my blog. TalkLeft will do its part to ensure victory in November. In fact, I encourage everyone to make a donation now to Obama-Biden 2008.
As to commenters here, see below:
The comments here fill up quickly with repetitive, tiring criticism we've heard a million times. No more, and especially not today.
Each of our posts can only accommodate 200 comments. So, for those of you who are remain unhappy with the ticket, please find another place to express your dissatisfaction and negativity. Those critical of the ticket will be limited to four comments in a 24 hour period.
Thanks to all for participating here during the primaries. I'm off to begin what promises to be a historic and memorable day. While I won't be around to moderate comments, we do have a moderator and the comment limit will be enforced, even if after the fact.
Update: I've already deleted several comments mis-stating what I wrote. Supporting the ticket does not mean we won't have criticism of it or the media. When they make a mis-step in our view, we'll say so. That's entirely different than what I'm referring to here: comments that in one way or another are nothing but "I can't vote for this ticket...." with a reason expressed dozens of times before.
This policy is for commenters, not the authors of the site who will continue to write whatever they want to.
