Transformers, Emily's List, and Strategy: What's on OpenLeft?

I'm really pleased to see the great work being done by Todd Beeton, Jonathan Singer, and of course, Jerome.  I'm particularly excited for the anti-NRA campaign, as they are obviously a cornerstone of right-wing power and someone should take them on directly.  At my new home, OpenLeft, we've already had a bunch of significant discussions that are bearing on progressive power.  Here's a sampling:

We're trying a number of things on the site, including videoblogging with people in politics engaged in big fights, comedy, and a 'right to respond' feature where groups that are criticized have the official right to respond on the front page.

Come by, and let us know what you think.

Your iPhone, Net Neutrality video, with Ben ... er, forgothislastname, was extremely well done. I can't talk to video style, but I learned more on the issue in those ten minutes than I had in the previous few months.

Re: Transformers

I've seen Transformers "FOUR" times.  Twice by myself, once with a group, and once with my sister.

Another political message is the fact that all Autobots except prime are General Motors vehicles (Chevy, Pontiac, Hummer, GMC), the traditional "Made in U.S.A." brand.

The Decepticons are all large military vehicles, except for Megatron.  I wonder what Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg's positions are on Iraq, or the military industrial complex.
