I am not a slavering fan of Palast - I mean, I think he's wrong when he diagnoses voter purging/class warfare by the wealthy as being primarily motivated by class (as opposed to race - his argument is that they're out to get the poor, who just happen to be people of color. Uh, no). There are other issues too.

That said, I think all Americans on the left (and the center-right, like the Dems) should take a look at Armed Madhouse and keep up with the GOP shenanigans by reading his site. It's not going to be enough to register new voters and get the left to the polls even if the numbers are overwhelming unless we fight back.

I tend to associate the "Democratic Party" with the DLC and see it as a monolithic body to which no one I know belongs.

Except, you totally do know somebody who belongs to the actual institution of the Democratic Party. I know it's hard to break patterns of thinking, but geez, what am I, chopped liver? :-)

I know, I'm bad - but hey, since you self-define as a TAX AND SPEND LIBERAL you're clearly not a member of the DLC.

However, in the future I will delineate between Clinton-era/American Prospect/DLC nonsense and the Democratic Party. Former bad, latter becoming more promising.

I type this while wearing an Obama sweatshirt, so I really have no leg to stand on myself.
