Another roach motel for progressive energy?
MoveOn, Netroots Nation, "grass roots"... One of these things is not like the others. And Van Jones from the Center for American Progress? Just because the Rs are his enemy doesn't make him my friend.
UPDATE Then again, the Nation thinks the "left" in Versailles has a communications problem, and Van Jones is a communicator. No, what the "left" in Versailles has is a long record of betrayal. That's been communicated quite clearly. All the people behind the "American Dream" movement were wrong about Obama in 2008, were wrong about health care in 2009, were wrong about jobs in 2008-2011, and are wrong about the banksters now. They're also wrong about ZOMG!!! The debt!!!!! And in classic Versailles fashion, they're doubling down on #FAIL. Here's the platform these clowns need to adopt to show they're not just another sparkle pony:
1. Medicare for All
2. End the Wars
3. Tax the Rich
4. Jobs for All.
That's it. Of course, with a simple, justice-based platform like that, you can't bill for the web site, you can't bill for the social media consult, you can't bill for the panel dicussions, you can't bill for the conferences, you can't bill for the polling, you can't bill for the teebee advertising, you don't get a job on K Street, and you just repeat the same four simple points over and over. So there's that. No chance to be "creative," so these creative class assholes won't go for it.
UPDATE Actually, I'm thinking "Jail the banksters" might be good to add.
