Even when they try to talk sense, Republicans just can’t help mixing in some nonsense along with it.  Maybe it’s a spoon-full-of-sugar kind of thing. “We need to do better among Hispanic voters,” [Haley Barbour] told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “In my state, where fewer than 3 percent of [...]

As FDL’s David Dayen wrote yesterday, we face seven months of what promises to be a thoroughly dreadful election season. Many (likely a minority) of us believe neither of the two major parties nor their likely Presidential nominees, offers the country even a realistic assessment of the challenges the nation faces, let alone workable solutions or a feasible political strategy for solving them.

That means that on most fronts — those not on some benign auto-pilot — things are likely to get worse for millions of people, their communities, and their environment. The only certainty is that the election will not improve matters, no matter who wins.

Back in 2007, NYU professor Jay Rosen held up FDL’s coverage of the Scooter Libby trial as an example of great journalism, and he warned traditional media folks to “make room for FDL in your own ideas about what’s coming on, news-wise.”

Four years later, it sure looks like the good professor knew what he was talking about, doesn’t it?

My New Senator on Elizabeth Warren at the CFPB

By: Sunday August 8, 2010 4:50 pm

Jeff Merkley is a new Senator for me, although I was proud to be a supporter-from-afar when he ran for the Senate from Oregon in 2008. I like his taking-questions-from-constituents YouTubes and was happy to see Atrios featured one of them on today’s Eschaton front page.
