Sometimes your words come back to haunt you. I know I had an exchange with someone here about what a jackass Bill Maher is. And, whomever it was said yeah, but sometimes he's right...and I said, no he's a sexist tool who has nothing worthwhile to offer. You only like him when you agree with him, yada, yada, yada. Well, tonight he most definitely has something to offer. If you have HBO, watch. Tell your friends to watch. Tell your neighbors to watch. Tell your Congressperson to watch.

The lines of battle over the economic salvation of America and our working class are now crystal clear. It is Republicans and BlueDogs together on one side, acting in furtherance of the same Corporatists who ran public policy under Reagan and the Bushs, versus the rest of us.
What was a back-room systematic undermining of anything remotely effective in the way of an economic stimulus bill is now an open threat: Read below the fold...

So my job is the push the new administration "from the left," if my blogging can said to have a constructive purpose. It's always fun to read more popular bloggers when they get snarky and angry in the way I'm prone to be most of the time, as I review the proposals and behaviors of the new administration. No one here is shocked by the already numerous "disappointments" from the administration, but I do wonder how long the majority in this country is going to keep giving Obama high approval ratings.

There is a Republicans for Single Payer group. Please forward the link to your Republican friends. The idea will seem less threatening if it comes from a Republican voice.
There are many Republicans today who are out of work and just discovering the hard realities of the American Health Neglect System. I am not just talking about unemployed White House or Capitol Hill operatives, I mean rank and file Republicans all over the country. They are going to start bringing their health care nightmare's to their Senators, and with luck that will give us the opening we need. Read below the fold...

This post is the first of a series preparing for Thursday's National Call in Day. Some general considerations in contacting politicians:
In a post-anthrax world it is necessary to use the web/email contact form, telephone, or personal visit to the district office. Regular mail is delayed for weeks because of post-anthrax security procedures.
ALWAYS be courteous. It is not possible to over emphasize the importance of this.
ALWAYS be brief and to the point. No one has time to read your flowing periods. That is what blogs are for. Read below the fold...

Quite a list here of who he's meeting with and learning from, and those supposedly "sensible Republicans" are far outnumbered by the usual warmongering criminal ones -- but all is not lost: he's actually read 2 whole books by non-warmongers! (but not spoken to them or met with them or asked them for advice)
A World of Issues Waiting, Obama and His Foreign Policy Squad Brush Up --
... Besides reaching out to Mr. Scowcroft, Mr. Obama has also called former Secretary of State George P. Shultz, a Reagan administration official who is known in some foreign policy circles as the father of the Bush doctrine because of his advocacy of preventive war. It is unclear what the two men talked about. Read below the fold...

So I'm deep in Republican territory, showing off my black ass and wearing all my UChicago gear, this week. It's interesting. The people around here are upper class rich, but not uberrich. Out and about, here's some useless data point stuff. Because Lambert keeps stealing all my post ideas, it's the best I can do. Read below the fold...

PALIN DOES IT AGAIN: As a politician, Sarah Palin is profoundly talented, disturbingly so. But uh-oh–she clearly enjoys telling lies! Last night, in her speech, she did it again! Why is she able to do this:

PALIN (9/3/08): We suspended the state fuel tax and championed reform to end the abuses of earmark spending by Congress. I told the Congress, "Thanks, but no thanks," on that Bridge to Nowhere.
If our state wanted to build a bridge, we were going to build it ourselves.

If there's a "valid" point here, it's that I really wish some investigative bloggers would follow up on this and find out more about just who has the hard-on for Twink Love. I bet it's a looong list of them in St. Paul. wonkette via Joe:
