Funny thing about all that yelling and swearing. It helped build a core base of support among outraged progressives ... and that core is the center of our community today.

That said, I've gotten plenty of heat, both online and off, that the rhetoric needed to be toned down so people would feel free to recommend the site to others. Since our main goal is to build a progressive activist community, a bit of moderation seemed like a good idea.

But the truth is, sometimes you just have to scream and raise holy hell, as I did when I saw this crap from the Decider. This link was sent to me by an Army major. Those guys are flat-out disgusted with Bush these days.

Bush was on a teleconference with soldiers in Afghanistan:

"I must say, I'm a little envious," Bush said. "If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed. It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," Bush said.
