Goodbye, Right-Wing Friend, Goodbye

Natalie Davis: Progressives and right-wingers don’t speak the same language (and the Right insists that everyone speak theirs and live under its rules and worldview).

Politico reports that Joe is part of a new business partnership negotiating public-eye opportunities, and maybe a record deal. On Tuesday, Wurzelbacher joined country music artist […]

Taking a Stand on Prop 8: Opposing It Is Just Plain Right

by Dick Price – If you’ve spent two minutes on our LA Progressive, you know where we stand on Proposition 8, the wrongheaded and wronghearted initiative that would take away the recently won right to marry for gays in California, just like their straight brothers and sisters – just like me and Sharon.

Palin Hits SNL; Rebuttal Rap

Credit where it’s due, what little Sarah Palin did on last night’s Saturday Night Live was funny, and who knew the Lipsticked Pitbull could groove like that?
