Foreign Dispatches sums it up

I'll just quote the whole thing from Foreign Dispatches
Every single one of the 15 candidates Markos Moulitsas and crew backed for Congress lost. A clearer illustration of Moulitsas' tin ear for what the majority wants is hard to find; one should never mistake an ability to speak to the hopes and fears of committed partisans (which DKos is good at) with the power to make a difference where elections are won and lost, i.e, at the center. Hopefully this total wipeout will serve as a wakeup call in some quarters that being relentlessly shrill (yes, shrill) does absolutely nothing to win over the majority - indeed, it nearly moved me to back Bush purely in order to spite the likes of Krugman, Moore et al.
