We Are a Think-tank

I've been thinking lately of posting diaries on Kos and on myDD and pointing out to each that they are, literally, a think tank. Those diaries will have to wait for a time when I'm not just writing off the top of my head, but I see that kos diarist alivingston has part of the idea:

Now that the dem leadership doesn't have "electability" to talk about anymore, it's "fundraising".  are you kidding me?  do we still believe that we have to sell out to corporate power after the grassroots success of this last year?

this is not the 1950's, and our success does not have to be contingent on starting up think tanks--but will involve heavy thinking (something that those on this site do very well, thank you for new things to ponder daily).  and it will involve acting.  we have a think tank, and it is us--so it also happens to be attached to the solution.

if we were willing to fight george bush like we did this summer, how hard will we fight the dem party right now?  this fight is every bit as serious.
