Lucrative wind blowing into Colorado

9News.com is running an article about wind power in Colorado. For those of you from outside the state, our current Democratic governor Bill Ritter ran his campaign based heavily on the promise of renewable energy. He said that he would go out of his way to make Colorado a leader in renewable energy, including wind and solar. And he’s already making a difference: “Why come to Colorado? At some point, it’s a risk-reward game forLearn More

Best political ad EVER!

The Democratic Party does have ideas!

I am pretty sick and tired of hearing people say, “Democrats don’t have any ideas! They don’t have any plans for how to make things better. All they can do is bash Republicans.” This is patently false; the Democratic Party has a Six-Point plan for 2006: The Democratic Party is committed to keeping our nation safe and expanding opportunity for every American. That commitment is reflected in an agenda that emphasizes the security of ourLearn More

Democrats have big lead after sex scandal

Yahoo! News has what may be the least surprising headline ever: Democrats have big lead after sex scandal: A ABC News/Washington Post poll found Democrats held a 54-41 percent lead in the congressional horse race among registered and likely voters, which ABC said was the biggest Democratic lead this close to election day in more than 20 years. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.  Representative Foley’s actions were bad, Speaker of the House Hastert’sLearn More

Bill Winter and alternative energy

So why do I like Bill Winter, besides the fact that he is trying to unseat the possibly-racist Tom Tancredo? Aside from being an alternative to Tom, Bill actually has some solid ideas that he is running on. One of those is support for alternative energy sources: “We may be the only industrialized country in the world that hasn’tfully connected the dots between energy policy (and) global warming,”Warner rallied the crowd. “As leaders of theLearn More

The Connecticut for Lieberman Party

Hehehe… regardless of the URL, I don’t think that this is the official website of The Connecticut for Lieberman Party. It’s far too honest to be the official website: When it became clear that Lieberman was no longer a real Democrat, he needed a way to hold onto his precious seat in the Senate. He scoured the state to identify the 25 supporters needed to form a political party so that he could still run,Learn More

Open letter to Senator Joe Lieberman

It’s been a month for writing letters to elected officials, apparently. This time around, I got spurred into action by General Wesley Clarks’ WesPAC to write to Joe Lieberman: Dear Senator Lieberman: Please don’t take this personally, but I believe that you will be doing the wrong thing if you choose to run for senate as an independent. On Tuesday, Democratic Connecticut voters made their wish clear: they want Ned Lamont to represent them inLearn More

God I love Howard Dean!

How many different ways do I love Howard Dean? I dunno if I can list them all. But let me try starting with this quote: Dean said in Wednesday’s speech that Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is “going to beat the pants off Katherine Harris, who didn’t understand that it is ethically improper to be the chairman of a campaign and count the votes at the same time. This is not Russia and she is notLearn More

What party does Salazar belong to again?

This problably shouldn’t be as surprising as it is… The Rocky Mountain News is reporting that Ken Salazar is going to choose to back Joe Lieberman if Lieberman loses to Ned Lamont in a Connecticut primary: Sen. Ken Salazar is risking the ire of some fellow Democrats by pledging to support incumbent Sen. Joe Lieberman, of Connecticut, in November’s election whether or not he wins the Democratic primary.Lieberman, a centrist and stalwart supporter of theLearn More

Clooney smacks down the Democrats

Apparently, if the Democratic leadership isn’t going to speak out against the Bush administration, then George Clooney is going to speak out against the Democratic leadership: “The fear of (being) criticized can be paralyzing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war,” Clooney said Monday in a profanity-laced posting on The Huffington Post blog site. “In 2003, a lot of us were saying, `Where is the linkLearn More
