Yes! Yes! Yes!

The PUMA movement is not about revenge. It is not about racism. It’s not about being immature. It is about holding the Democratic accountable for abandoning its principles and the people who strengthened its foundations. It is about not rewarding a Party that uses voter suppression techniques on its own members. We want to belong to a party that respects us and works with and for us. We don’t want to hand over our votes without representation. ~ Riverdaughter

Despite all the awfulness that this campaign has caused, the one awesome thing it has done is opened the way for us to find some incredible people out there who were previously drowned out by the booming voices of the blogger boyz. Thank gawd for Anglachel and River Daughter and you and Pocochina and Donna Darko and Redstar and so many others.

Absolutely! When I thought I was losing my mind, I started finding you all, and it has made a world of difference. I've got a friend who has only recently found these spaces as well. CJ, I'm talking about you!

I think the Democratic Party needs to be purged of what I call the "nutroots" (before Marshall Wittmann and the right bloggers started using the term) before it can be on sane ground again.
