Funding The Red District Campaign: Officeholders and PAC’s

Sat, 06 Oct 2007 19:15:01 +0000

What is most difficult part of organizing the viable Red District Campaign? It is creating seed money funding and the resultant hiring of professional staff. When running against well-funded professionals, the Democratic Candidate needs professionals in his campaign as well. So it boils down to early money. As Emily’s List has said for so long: […]



They’re Lunatics

Sat, 06 Oct 2007 02:25:06 +0000

David Brooks tried to figure out why the Republican Party is in “shambles.” John Cole on Balloon Juice does a much better job explaining their problems: For starters, people got tired of being associated with these drooling retards. Then, when they realized that these drooling retards had ideological allies running the show in the Bush […]



Krugman: Conservatives Are Such Jokers

Fri, 05 Oct 2007 20:59:41 +0000

Sad but true… Paul Krugman nails the attitude of “today’s leading conservatives” who are “Reagan’s heirs.” If you’re poor, if you don’t have health insurance, if you’re sick — well, they don’t think it’s a serious issue. In fact, they think it’s funny. On Wednesday, President Bush vetoed legislation that would have expanded S-chip, the […]

Thu, 04 Oct 2007 20:34:22 +0000

Congressman Tim Ryan, an outspoken opponent of the war and a consistent voice that speaks truth to power, has a fine diary up at DailyKos explaining his endorsement. It explains the process he went through to make this endorsement. It’s revealing of both Ryan and Dodd. Please read the original. Here’s my own reaction to […]



Bush’s Cynical, Callous SCHIP Veto

Wed, 03 Oct 2007 18:07:55 +0000

The line was drawn in the sand today… Bush followed through with his threat to veto State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), “in a sharp confrontation with Congress.” It was only the fourth veto of Bush’s presidency, and one that some Republicans feared could carry steep risks for their party in next year’s elections. The […]



Candidates, New Media and Supporting the Blogsphere

Wed, 03 Oct 2007 01:26:46 +0000

So if they understand the importance of the Blogsphere and The Social Networking Sphere why aren't they supporting, in return, the very medium that gives them, essentially, a free unlimited forum?



Edwards: Rural America and Economic Fairness

Wed, 03 Oct 2007 00:06:14 +0000

“We should have a national capital fund to make money — capital — available to new businesses that will operate and start in smaller towns and smaller communities. Right now all the capital stays in big cities. We’ve got to get it out into the rural areas.”



Kerry Staffer Called to Serve in Iraq

Tue, 02 Oct 2007 19:23:42 +0000

In just a short couple of weeks, John Kerry and his staff will “bid farewell to Setti Warren, the deputy director of his Massachusetts office.” Warren is headed to Iraq, is “leaving to spend the next year in Iraq as a Navy intelligence officer.” Peter Gelzinis reports in the Boston Herald and catches perfectly the […]
