How do you know that? Well, you can tell when the forces of the Establishment that have so failed the Democratic party are lashing out. California Dem. Party staffer Bob Mulholland, for example, called bloggers and activists "worse than Bush."

And there you have it. The reason we fight this fight against those like Mulholland, who probably thinks Bush is a "swell guy."

And the success? Well, let's see how Princess Dianne behaves now. Funny how primaries in 2006 reminded Reps. Jane Harman and Al Wynn, both in Democratic districts, that they were...what do you call it again? Oh yeah, Democrats.

Oh, and 34,000 Democrats signed the petition calling for censure. That is grassroots organizing for you (hat tip to The Courage Campaign and Moveon.org). The days of answering only to the elite are over.
