|Just a little Terms of Service reminder about bashing Democratic Nominees. [View all]
Bashing a Democratic nominee during the election season is a no no. Oh and if you post a story meant to bash the nominee and then add a one line caveat saying ---at least he or she is better than the tea bag candidate---you're still full of shit.
Terms of Service:
'But when general election season begins, DU members must support Democratic nominees (EXCEPT in rare cases where were a non-Democrat is most likely to defeat the conservative alternative, or where there is no possibility of splitting the liberal vote and inadvertently throwing the election to the conservative alternative). For presidential contests, election season begins when both major-party nominees become clear. For non-presidential contests, election season begins on Labor Day. Everyone here on DU needs to work together to elect more Democrats and fewer Republicans to all levels of American government. If you are bashing, trashing, undermining, or depressing turnout for our candidates during election season, we'll assume you are rooting for the other side".
