Concerning membership and sustaining progressive support, the Democracy Alliance’s decision to pull funding from may progressive groups is an example of the corruption of that process, and how worthiness of support can get conflated with how well you regurgitate the Party’s talking points. The money is being drained from progressive organizations that do good work, and it’s being channeled almost wholly to party-building organizations or groups that support that objective or the Administration.

I can’t offer you a tote bag or a coffee mug, but I can offer this: if FDL can get the funds to support a full-time Emptywheel, a lot of folks will sleep a lot less soundly at night — Addington, Bybee, Cheney, lazy congresspeople, TradMed stenographers, . . .

Are we in the middle of an uprising? Best-selling author, journalist and indefatigable blogger, David Sirota says yes. In fact, there’s a primordial soup of a potential social movement out there. Yet it’s not a forgone conclusion that the uprising will be a progressive one. In this interview Sirota discusses his new book, The Uprising.

What you see here is a slide from the audiovisual presentation about my new book, THE UPRISING, that I unveiled yesterday at a Campaign for America’s Future event in Washington, D.C. It is a graph showing Americans confidence in different institutions – and, as my new newspaper column today shows, it is an image that should give us hope that today’s populist uprising is, in fact, a progressive opportunity…if we seize it.

I love footnotes and links. They give references, argue with others, and tell stories. FDL Book Salons go one step further: they bring footnotes to life. Take a glance at some past Book Salons, peek at who is coming soon, and revel in the fun of living footnotes.

So Douglas Feith has a book out. The former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, famously described by Tommy Franks as “the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth,” has 688 pages in which to make the case that he made George Bush a fantastic war and Bush screwed it up. Fortunately, the liberal blogosphere wrote the book on Feith years ago. And I do mean literally wrote the book.

Reading Jane’s post Friday morning about the religious beliefs of candidates made me think of how my own Congressman, Keith Ellison, had to deal with religious controversy in his past and how he has been able to overcome it.
While a law student in 1989 and 1990, Ellison wrote several columns as Keith E.

In my post last week, I talked about how capitalism and technology, working for each other, produced a new regime that shattered the old pact between capital and labor, beginning in the mid-1970s. From then on, this new regime of capital began to lay the foundation for the age of the Internet that was to emerge about two decades later in the mid-1990s.

If you subscribe to a small and/or independent magazine, you’ve probably already heard about the corporate-mag-inspired postal rate hike that went into effect earlier this year. This rate hike was designed to benefit the big corporate mag publishers and drive everyone else out of business.
But there’s still a chance it can be undone — if we act now:The March 2007 decision by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to drastically increase
