Remember That Guy Eric Fuller?
Eric Fuller finds himself lost down the same memory hole as Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink, $4 gallon/gas outrage, concerns about Gitmo and warrantless wiretaps. It’s crowded down there. Democrats use people and issues for political purposes. Arguing from principle would require having them, and as far as I can tell, the Democrats are devoid of those pesky things.
