A friend sent to me a Washington Post video investigative report published this week called, Stop and Seize: Aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes. After I watched it, I sucked in my breath and said to myself, “No wonder there’s a Tea Party.” The Post reports that, […]

Jennifer Brunner wrote: Next Tuesday, May 6th, is Primary Election Day in Ohio. Every polling place in the state will be open for voting from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. When you go to the polls, you will be asked, “What is your party affiliation?” That means, are you a Democrat, a Republican, Green Party […]
I wish she were running for Senator or Governor, but I’ll take what I can get. We need a lot more people like Jennifer Brunner in public office.
*That would be Reform Sex-Offender Laws…
From Jennifer Brunner via Courage PAC: The Ohio Democratic Party will elect a chair tomorrow, Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at Ohio Democratic Party headquarters at 340 E. Fulton Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215. The two contenders are current Chair Chris Redfern and Lorain County Democratic Party Chair Tony Giardini. The result of tomorrow […]
I truly believe that in a parallel universe the Ohio Democratic Party got behind Jennifer Brunner’s winning campaign for the United States Senate and she carried the party to sweeping victory across the state. Sadly, we all know what happened in this universe. Brunner represents a new Democratic Party, one not dominated by old boys […]
From Anastasia Pantsios: On the candidate level, there’s a problem for African-Americans that may be even more intractable than the one women face. You can appoint a black candidate; you can put one on a ticket as a running mate. But they can’t win state wide on their own. In 2006, when Democrats swept almost […]
And then get mad as hell…
I’ve always understood that Republicans are focused on gaining power, holding onto power and, when they fail in the first two goals, denying power to their opposition so as to best benefit the rapacious rich. I don’t think Republicans have ever been so blatant about these goals in the past as they have become this […]
David Corn writes: One result of the 2010 campaign was clear before any ballots were counted: Democracy is in danger. That sounds hyperbolic. But whatever remains of the quaint notion—call it a myth—that in a democracy citizens are more or less equal is in the process of being shredded, due to the rise this year […]
The Sun isn’t up yet, but I am after an unusually late night. I said this last evening to Anthony Fossaceca, Anastasia Pantsios and Jill Miller Zimon as we watched the meltdown together: Every salaried employee of the Democratic Party at the national and state levels should resign this morning. Last evening’s debacle was not […]
What the fuck has Obama done so far? Via Plunderbund…
This should be the first, second and third question out of every voter’s (and journalist’s) mouth when speaking wtih any politician who has signed the Republican party’s Pledge to America.
[1423: I’m still working on this story, but the short version is that nearly everyone thinks I’m making a mountain out of a molehill and perhaps I am, but I’m the kind of person who thinks little things are important. I also think that the details have for years now been lost in the flow […]
