Daily Kos guy speaks:
MY GIRLFRIEND JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT ALL MY BOYFRIENDS
My girlfriend doesn't read Daily Kos, and probably never will. She depends on me to tell her what's going on in online news, what actions we need to take, what new ideas are out there, what issues are percolating.... My girlfriend didn't know that I had posted a diary awhile ago and I was too chicken to tell her. (That's how far outside my comfort zone it was!) Well, I told her about a week ago and she was really excited! Even though she's not even an infrequent lurker, she knows Kos. She knows from bits and pieces - from other articles she's read, from things on the radio, and mostly from me and my daily news briefings over dinner. Anyway, she knew it was a big deal. So I showed her my diary and of all things - she cried! (I didn't expect that....) She was moved by the great support of the community, she was moved by my heartfelt Thank You, she was moved by all of the relationships - known or unknown - that Daily Kos has fostered. And she was moved by how far I've come in terms of my own awareness, my own informed citizenry.
In your face, Cheney! Prepare to have your gate crashed, motherfucker!
