What's good for the Kos is good for the NARAL

A while back Kos dissed NARAL for not being a team player, for not downplaying a part of their message in service of a bigger victory for progressive ideals.

And that pissed off a lot of folks and sparked many debates.

But now, after having been taken to task by one of his own diarists for injudiciously dissing a huge chunk of his allies, Kos fires back with a post essentially saying that he doesn't want the power or responsibility and that's not why people like him anyway, for his judicious language and measured stances. Fine.

But Fact-esque tries a little experiment where she inserts NARAL into Kos's diatribe and the results, though whether Kos=NARAL is true or not, are interesting...


"NARAL became popular because of its style, because of its voice, because of its refusal to compromise what it believes in order to appease anyone. And it won't stop doing it. As NARAL has said many times before to wails of outrage -- you don't like it, it's a huge country. Nothing is forcing anyone to join NARAL. Or, alternatively, disagree with it. NARAL doesn't get offended when people say things it disagrees with. NARAL pushes back."
There's more... (Fact-esque)
