Quote of the Day

As the crisis in Cairo’s Tahrir Square unfolded, respected opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei complained bitterly that Washington was pushing “the whole Arab world into radicalization with this inept policy of supporting repression.” After 40 years of U.S. dominion, the Middle East was, he said, “a collection of failed states that add nothing to humanity or science” because “people were taught not to think or to act, and were consistently given an inferior education.

Wisconsin Battles On

FROM CROOKS & LIARS' Nicole Belle:

And another one bites the dust...

Wisconsin Democrats announced late Monday that they are filing recall signatures against a fourth Republican state senator [Sheila Harsdorf of the 10th District], in the political battle over Republican Gov. Scott Walker's anti-public employee union agenda. And with this development, the momentum is growing for control of the chamber to be up for grabs in the coming months.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press, whose readership includes people across the Minnesota state line in Harsdorf's northwestern Wisconsin district, reports:

Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Graeme Zielinski said a petition will be filed with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board on Tuesday. While he didn't have a total signature count Monday afternoon -- signatures were still coming in -- Zielinski said the number is well over the 15,744 needed.

Democrats on Monday filed petitions against Republican state Sen. Luther Olsen, and had previously filed petitions targeting state Sen. Dan Kapanke and state Sen. Randy Hopper. These petitions are still being reviewed by the state Government Accountability Board, which oversees elections.

The Shutdown

During Nixon's government shutdown, I happened to be living in Washington DC. The thing with DC is that they do not have a state to help them with funding, they are funded directly from the federal government. Now, that shutdown happened in August, and you could tell that the garbagemen were on furlough because the piles of trash that were heaping up on the sidewalks and streetcorners were stinking to high heaven.

That's what I remember most - the smell of shutdown in the morning.

This time around, we have this:

open Survey

Dear DNC,

I received your "Presidential survey", and when I got to the last page, you asked for comments:

"If the Dems ever grow a spine, I'll be Gobsmacked!"

Are you willing to support President Obama and the DNC at this important yadda yadda yadda...

"ALL my $ are going to :

Bernie Sanders
Rep Raúl M. Grijalva
Anthony Weiner
Alan Grayson
and Russ Feingold"

(those with balls)

You won't defend my rights OR my economic interests, what good ARE you?
