Join Us to Stop Bush and Rumsfeld on Iran

Bush has proven he cannot be trusted with foreign policy. This will be short and to the point.  A lot has been written about Bush and Iran since Sy Hersh’s New Yorker article, and too little done.  This is a time for actions more than blog posts.  We’ve had confirmation

Late Nite FDL: Dear Wolfie: Can You Tell the Difference Yet?

Not the same, and one of them is rotten.  Holy shit, Wolf!  Who knew you were such a party animal?  I’ve never heard anyone make armpit fart noises good as you.  Screw Belushi:  Woodward should have written a book about you!  Great to have you in class.   But now

Demand Sane Leadership On Iran

   I Wish This Were A Joke  If there’s one thing the last five years have shown us, it is that the Bush administration cannot be left alone to conduct foreign policy without oversight.  Poll after poll shows the silent American majority knows Bush’s war in Iraq has been a

El Sueño Americano (The American Dream)

Today I joined sea of Americans – many with official citizenship, some without – to celebrate America.   I find it impossible to convey in words the energy, passion and vitality of the uncountable hundreds of thousands standing shoulder to shoulder today on the National Mall in Washington, D. C., to

Let’s Talk, Senator.

When you see Ali here at FDL, you know it’s time to awaken the grassroots for action. So what is it this time? Guess who’s coming to your home town (or maybe close to it)? That’s right:  it’s your senator.  And like FDL heroes of yore, it’s time for you

Take the Poll: FDL YearlyKos Breakfast

Okay, I’m working with the YearlyKos people to set up an FDL breakfast.  I didn’t exactly inherit the "event planner" gene so many gay folks seem to have, but my business consultant side tells me to get some data before I make a fool of myself.  Therefore, I need you

Rover Goes All In

"Um. . . I’ll see your censure and raise an IMPEACHMENT!  Yeah, THAT’S the ticket!"  Via Crooks and Liars, we see the bedwetting criminal Republican party has a new ad online, ostensibly warning its base that if the Democrats get the upper hand in November, Bush will be impeached.  Go

Reason #30452 To Give to Ned Lamont

On Wednesday afternoon, the DSCC and the DCCC held a conference call with some bloggers.  That was my first time participating in one of those.  I found it. . . enlightening.  Ahem. I’ve already written about the basic message both Rahm Emanuel and Chuck Schumer conveyed to us about their

Progressives and the Democratic Security Plan

       Tell me what you see. . . I’ve spent the last couple of days listening to people here and elsewhere in the blogosphere to learn what people think, not only about the newly unveiled Democratic plan for Real Security, but of the party’s campaign strategy going into the midterm

Calling For A Politics of Contrast

              I can spin!  Want to see why the currently prevailing Democratic strategy on Iraq will be a dud in November?  Want to see how the corrupt Republican establishment will run from having lost Iraq while working to suppress majority voter interest in the midterm elections? Ladies and gentlemen, I
