The Professional Left

As was the case in 2010, I see a lot of carping about how emoprogs and (this time around) Glenn Greenwald made everybody not vote. This is silly. Very few people who are actually engaged enough in politics to know who the hell Glenn Greenwald is, or to read political blogs, would decide to take their ball and go home because Obummer. Do those people exist? Sure, but not, you know, tens of thousands of them in every state.

A bunch of people get paid a hell of a lot of money to run campaigns and to get people to the polls and to win their damn elections. If they fail to do that they suck at their jobs (I get that plenty of races were just too hard to win, but some weren't). It ain't Glenn Greenwald's fault.
