Effete Liberals, Bomaye - Ta-Nehisi Coates:

"No one has conspired to deprive us of power over the past few decades. The American people aren't stupid. We've sucked at articulating our message. If you have any interest in a more progressive country, we need to be honest. At the presidential level, at least, conservatives have hammered us. Give them their due. Don't blame Rush. Don't blame Kristol. Don't denigrate states you've never visited. Give them their due. Give them their respect. Study them, and then get better."

(Via Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic.)

Finally, to hear someone else speak some truth! Obama shows there is a difference between democracy and getting things done.
