Confused

Democrats have been beaten so badly in Georgia that at least some of them appear to be confusing abandonment of positions for equal rights and reproductive rights with being "socially moderate."

What they appear to be missing, as they scrape for votes they aren't going to get anyway, is the freedom they are provided by not having a chance at winning elections. Because if you can't possibly win and have no chance to govern, you can take completely pure, uncompromising positions on policy and attempt to move the debate.

Sounds like the 2nd term Zell platform to me. Last I checked that worked out pretty well.

That's because Zell was socially conservative Democrat, and a savvy politician. And he focused much of his political capital on issues that united Georgians as opposed to dividing them.
