Ebert....meh. Just another Democratic party shill waxing eloquent about how everyone should be doing the same old stuff that hasn't gotten the DP anywhere. Same old line that, back in the 90s, had Clintonistas smugly telling folks to the left of them "We don't have to cater to you, you're going off to the Citizen's Party anyway" and shutting down opposition mikes at the National Convention.

That cocky arrogance and the manipulations of the Democratic Leadership Council led to the Bush presidency...and by extension, to the mess we're in now.

Am I bitter about it? Hell, yes. Enough that I'm probably going to blow the dust off of some of my old radical essays from the 90s and start putting them up once I get my website rolling.
