Shut up. SHut up. Shut up and Shut Up.

I am so damn tired of calls for purity. You know in your own way, you're as much as a part of the problem as Fox News is. I've been taking mail from progressives and liberals for years, and I every time I read them I realize that you want as much anarchy as the right does. You don't want to govern; you want to win. You had a primary, your candidates couldn't get a fraction of the primary votes, so you blame the media, the centrists really everybody but yourselves. Bad enough you want to blow up half the country - and is half the country, the last election proved that - you have no use for the people in power because they're part of the problem. You want to form a third party now, go ahead and make your argument. I honestly think the country needs more than one choice. But all you and people on your side is bitch, and when the country or the media rejects you, you double down. Do you know who you sound like?

I have no doubt this will just be dismissed. I know better than anybody how social media works. But rest assured when I tell you and you fellow columnists are not part of the solution. You're part of the problem. But that's you want. You just want to complain. Go ahead. You have that right. But your challenges are the exact thing that the Tea Party was ten years ago, and we all know how that work. Find a way to govern, not just shout and the rain. Maybe then I'll listen to you

After years of laboring for love in my blog on TV, I have decided to expand my horizons by blogging about my great love to a new and hopefully wider field.
