Self-Defeating Democrats

Via Atrios, I read this how-to document by Peter Daou describing the correct way to go about letting the wiretap scandal go down the drain just like Valerie Plame, Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, abstinence education, faith-based funding, tax cuts for the rich, an unnecessary, poorly-planned, prohibitively expensive war ...okay, I'll try to stay on subject here.

Shouldn't liberals quit throwing their hands up in the air and declaring progress impossible? Isn't that a little counter-productive?

Not that I know what else we should do. I do know that liberals need to stop licking our wounds about the GOP having Karl Rove on their side, mastering the framing issues, and kowtowing Democrat politicians. A plague of wussiness seems like a much too simple explanation for Democrat woes. What is really going on here?
