What a great ad: And this one’s not bad either: It’s nice to have a Democratic candidate for President who actually thinks it’s important to inspire people.

Right votes, wrong reasons

In case you find yourself thinking that the majority of Senate Democrats actually care about things like the rule of law, Glenn Greenwald puts Monday’s vote into perspective for you: Senate Democrats today took a stand for their procedural rights, not against telecom immunity or warrantless eavesdropping. After all, many of the Senate Democrats who […]

Just say no to Hillary Clinton

Whatever the reason for Hillary Clinton’s “surprising” victory in yesterday’s New Hampshire primary, I have to say I’m disappointed. I had some hope that after losing both Iowa and New Hampshire, the way would be paved for someone other than her to be the Democratic nominee. Someone I could actually vote for in the general […]

Presidential politics

Now that the overly-emphasized Iowa caucuses take place on the ridiculously early date of January 3rd, I suppose it’s about time for me to offer up my opinions on the 2008 primary candidates. Let’s start with the Democrats, since that’s the primary I’ll be voting in here in Connecticut. My top three picks are: John […]

That’s my senator

December 17th, 2007 – 10:17 pm

The hero of the day is Senator Chris Dodd, as he stopped the Senate from approving retroactive immunity for the telecom companies, at least for now: Throughout the day Senator Dodd stood on the Senate floor and spoke out against the Bush administration’s abuse of executive powers. He spoke out against granting retroactive immunity for […]

I just signed this petition to help push Congress to carry out its 2006 mandate to end the occupation in Iraq. It’s clear that our leaders, journalists, and so-called experts in DC aren’t going to do anything about this war unless they hear massive public outrage. It’s our duty as citizens to express our anger […]

As suggested by Chris “MyDD” Bowers, here’s some search engine optimization for Google.

Who knew?

Apparently I’m now a member of the Taliban, simply because I supported Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary. Since I’m not ethnically Pashtun, nor am I a Muslim, this comes as quite a surprise, but if a loon like Cal Thomas said it then it must be true. Does anyone else find it supremely ironic […]

A turning point?

August 7th, 2006 – 9:08 pm

Tomorrow is the day the Democratic voters of Connecticut get to find out who really runs the party, them or the D.C. insiders. If you’ve been reading the articles and blog posts I’ve linked to over in the Noteworthy section of my sidebar, then you’ve already got a pretty good idea of what’s at stake. […]
