Maxine Waters to Campaign for Lamont

By: Saturday July 8, 2006 10:13 pm

  I swear if it wasn’t for the Congressional Black Caucus during the Clinton impeachment hearings my faith in democracy would have crumbled right then and there.  You want a fight?  They know how to fight, which is why the right hates them and spends so much time trying to marginalize them (well, that and [...]


FDL Late Nite: Here We Come. . .

By: Saturday July 8, 2006 8:15 pm

              Here come the Roots. . .  Okay, I’m not here to engage in grassroots or netroots triumphalism.  We’re way behind in the game and the other guys still have us outgunned.  But we’re making some progress, and I wanted to highlight a few things for everybody. I’ve spent a lot of time this week [...]

  It says that all we have to do in order to rid Sunnydale of the demonic ruler is to . . .  The other day, after spending time rambling about the Hamdan decision (and trying to entice an unclaimed kitten in the barn out from behind stacks of horse blankets) I came across a [...]

Blue America: Rick Penberthy, FL-5th

By: Saturday July 8, 2006 11:00 am

  The first time I spoke with Rick Penberthy, Democratic candidate for Florida’s 5th congressional district, I asked him what the biggest cities in the district are.

I just love this picture — the glee of this small child is infectious, isn’t it?  Thought we could all use some laughs this morning. – Ned to Joe:  "…this isn’t Fox News…"  Crooks and Liars has the clip, and it makes me laugh all over again.  – Bob Geiger has the Saturday Cartoons up — do NOT [...]
