Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    Progressive Democrat Issue 219

    Back from a nice vacation. If you like, you can read about it here and see a few pictures of Jacob here.

    Quite a lot going on, isn't there. Republicans (Sanford and Ensign) showing that their holier-than-thou attitudes are nothing more than facades covering a whole load of hypocrisy. And seems even groping pundits is on the list of Republican fetishes. Meanwhile we now learn that Cheney ordered the CIA to lie to Congress and the Bush Administration covered up a massacre in Afghnanistan. The Sotomayor hearings are coming up and the Republicans are going to have a very hard time stopping the approval of this excellent nominee. And of course Palin's very bizarre behavior...oh boy I hope she runs for President in 2012! She will drag the Republican party down even further.

    Mostly I ignored all that was going on the past two weeks. But now I am back and will start catching up. I am reprising some articles (some updated) because they are still relavent. I also have largely suspended the "articles of interest" parts of the local pages until I have time to start them up again. They tend to take time to compile. Also adding a Minnesota focus page to help highlight some good candidates.
