Why Liberals Are Angry

Just in case the conservatives couldn't figure it out, Michael Tomasky spells it out for them.

I think Tomasky is right that anger won't win the general election, and potentially could alienate far more moderates than the lefties it attracts. But I wonder if some anger isn't appropriate at this stage. I worry about those candidates who don't seem particularly fussed by the way the Republicans have changed the rules in the middle of the game. A little genuine outrage is entirely appropriate, and I fits neatly into the standard primary strategy of wooing fringe voters before being nominated, and working on moderates after the primary.
