I didn't mean to butt in, but this was an older post, and I didn't think you'd see Mr. D's uninformed assault.
Yes. Tilly stares. Frannie hisses.

Still waiting, at 4:30am.
Terrifying, even for some of the young, as in the case of 29-year-old Dr. Xia Sisi.

I should add that some readers will miss the post's point (or worse, deliberately elide it) — its point being, obviously, that the validity of the charge has nothing whatsoever to do with political utility of it.
Good analysis, Jason, even if it was hardly a draw; Ed was sent (I use the passive voice, out of modesty, and with a bit of tongue in my cheek) whimpering into the very silence he so urgently advocated. I do hope he returns, for as I informed commenter Mary this a.m., a diversity of views is peachy — and I assume we're all emotionally strong adults who, every one of us, can handle legitimate criticism of any view. But you really put your finger on things when you referenced "temperament." I almost never — Never — comment on a comment. I take such things in stride — or perhaps I might compliment comments such as yours. Regrettably, I'm human. Incessant, ridiculing comments and little else can accumulate to the point where I just have to unload. Which I did. And I'm not the least bit ashamed. Shame emerges from either spinelessness or sinister recklessness.
No problem, Mary. I always appreciate criticism and differing views. I'm sure Ed can handle them too; he can handle taking some of his own medicine. We all have to do that from time to time.

That's only for "the subset of 402 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents." The smaller the universe in polling, naturally, the higher the MOE. "Results for the full sample [more than twice the subset's size] have a margin of sampling error of +/- 3.7 percentage points."

Thanks for pointing that out. The change in layout design obliterated several sidebar links — and I didn't even notice.
