One could also look at musicians to see how this works out, i.e., comparing Bono and The Edge of U2 with Tommy Lee of Motley Crue (quick – name his side project) and Axl Rose of Guns ‘n’ Roses.

@ManchuCandidate: Even when they’re busy kissing neo-fascist ass and helping pass every psychopathic, nation-ruining bill that pops into the Retreadicans’ collective pea-brains (see 1994 to 2006 present)–which flung the country over a cliff like a flaming runaway bus–the Dems’ fatal flaw has been and will forever be that they’re just not right-wing enough.

@Benedick: I wish I could muster some sympathy, but only because it would make me look like a better person. This is how little regard I have for that man.
