It’s the voting video extravaganza! For the California Voters

Voter Suppression Efforts Alive and Well in Nevada

The Washington Independent published a piece detailing the surprise of local Republicans over how quickly Washoe County has become a Democratic county (Hat tip to a press release from the State Democratic Party’s Paul Kincaid). Perhaps Republicans’ surprise is a big part of their problem. After all, it’s widely acknowledged that the state Republicans have [...]

Twitter Vote Report on Rocketboom

This is the first time I’ve “seen” any of my co-conspirators in the flesh so to speak. Awesome.

Dear Harry Reid, Joe Lieberman Must Go

I think the Senate Democrats should kick Joe Lieberman out of their caucus no matter how many seats they gain this election. Lieberman has already threatened to leave the caucus/party anyway because he’s so “disappointed with the Democratic Party.” Harry Reid, let’s give Lieberman what he really wants–OUT. The Bold Progressives aren’t as mean as [...]

Get A Call From Hot Buttered Rum On Election Day

Jilly Derby Kicks Dean Heller’s Butt

I’ve been meaning to write about the Derby-Heller (CD-2) race for a long time. I don’t know about you, but it seems like I receive a Heller mailer every time I open my mailbox these days. I have to admit his mailers are good. Everyone should hire that design firm because they have a gift [...]

Assembly District 24 Anti-Gwaltney Flier

The Conservation League PAC sent a mailer the brings up Gwaltney’s checkered past as a possible reason not to trust him as a legislator. I guess that’s what happens when you start a dirty campaign–you give permission for others to respond in kind. I’ve been hearing rumors about the why and the how of Gwaltney’s [...]

They Let Anyone Call Themselves A Reporter These Days

Ken Layne’s right–this is what passes as journalism in Florida?

Obama’s Reno Rally This Morning

According to a university scheduling official, about 11,000 people attended the Obama rally this morning at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Peccole Park. I don’t believe in waiting in line, so I left the house at 9:30, hopped on the Sierra Spirit bus and arrived at the rally promptly at 10am after a short walk [...]

Laughing Liberally Saturday Night

From what little I know, I know that these guys are funny, and liberal.  We should support that.  I don’t know the other fellows, but I “know” Katie Halper and Baratunde Thurston in an online way.  Thurston started the Voter Suppression Wiki I’ve been talking about so much lately.  He’s funny and he’s an activist.  [...]

Understatement of the Last 50 Years or So

From the New York Times: Harry Waxman to Alan Greenspan: “You had the authority to prevent irresponsible lending practices that led to the subprime mortgage crisis. You were advised to do so by many others. Do you feel that your ideology pushed you to make decisions that you wish you had not made?” Alan Greenspan’s [...]

Tweet the Vote: Twitter Vote Report Project Update

At the moment, the Twitter Vote Report project is an amazing and chaotic storm of volunteer programmers, developers, activists, and partner organizations shaping this octopus into a lean, mean vote reporting machine. In just a few days, where there is a wiki, there will be a fully developed website full of organized information about how [...]
