A Minnesotans thoughts on Michelle Bachmann

Michelle Bachmann has turned into quite a hot topic here in the netroots after her disgraceful performance on Hardball that that you can watch for yourself here.

It's hard to even begin on how horrifying that McCarthyesque, hateful interview was. But a lot of us Minnesotans have known about Michelle Bachmann and her hateful, extreme ways for years. Thankfully we've got a real shot at beating her this year, and you can help send her and her hateful brand of politics packing. Keep reading to find out how!

$200 to Change Indiana

Cross-posted from Hoosier Progressive and at Blue Indiana.

So what's the story?
This November, Hoosier voters will have the opportunity to change the face of state government.  George Bush's former budget man Mitch Daniels is the current governor.  He has sold off the state's infrastructure and sold out to big business.  From daylight savings time to education to pollution to job creation, Mitch Daniels has been bad for Indiana.

The Democratic candidate is former Congresswoman and Clinton Undersecretary of Agriculture Jill Long Thompson.  Long Thompson is committed to the middle class and has a sound plan for economic growth.  She also has a plan to help Hoosier families get health insurance.  And she represents history by being the first female governor in Indiana's history.

GA-Sen: The coming air war, Part Two

Also posted on DailyKos.  Will be on Senate Guru and SwingState when my membership goes through...

Folks,

Hopefully this diary is timed slightly better than the last.  The halo of the RNC is starting to wear off, and McCain-Palin is going into the country to try and keep up what momentum they can.  Meanwhile, we've still got to deal with the state-by-state duels to take the Senate.

I will post my usual upfront fundraising plea here before getting into the meat of the topic.  Right now, Jim Martin has almost reached the $20k mark on ActBlue.  Is a goal of reaching $50k by the next week too high a mark to set?

Alright, now to the heart of the matter.  This is part two of a two part series.  In the first part, I brought out the first set pieces of Saxby Chambliss in the coming two-month TV slamfest.  The second part is about our side, with Jim Martin.

GA-Sen: The coming air war, Part One

Crossposted to the Kos.

Folks,

I know that defining Sarah Palin before and with the media (I've never seen someone walk into such a field of fire upon announcement, but then my political career is almost short enough to qualify me for a Republican VP nomination), and the RNC is taking up a lot of attention here.  However, down in the smaller plays, such as trying to get to sixty seats in the Senate, there is still a lot of work to do.

I will post my usual upfront fundraising plea here before getting into the meat of the topic.  Right now, Jim Martin has almost reached the $20k mark on ActBlue.  Is a goal of reaching $50k by the next week too high a mark to set?

Alright, now to the heart of the matter.  This will be part one in a two part series.  First, I will introduce the villain, and tomorrow, I will bring out the hero of this little drama brewing in Georgia.

Newest Addition to Protecting Our Asses: Steve Kagen

Two weeks ago, I posted a diary on DailyKos, MyDD, Open Left, and the Swing State Project announcing the creation of the ActBlue page Protecting Our Asses.  The goals of this page are as follows:

  • To reinforce vulnerable and potentially vulnerable incumbent members of Congress with cash.
  • To reward good, progressive behavior from these incumbents.
  • To diminish or replace the need for these incumbents to seek fundraising dollars from less progressive sources such as corporate PACs and "moderate"/conservative groups.
  • To send the message that the Netroots will have your back if you have ours.

    More over the flip.
