Staging a pro-Drumpf rally in this city known for progressive activism is no less provocative than Nazis in Skokie.
H. Scott Prosterman: His supporters said over and over, “Give him a chance to govern.” OK, we tried that American Fascism thing for a couple of months and it’s not for us. Please give us back our democracy.
Scott Prosterman: Despite a careful application of charm and sales theory, I didn’t get past the gatekeeper. I’m still waiting to hear back from Senator Al Franken and Sara Silverman, not the one from Memphis, but THE Sara Silverman.

Scott Prosterman: Why not legal marijuana California? Because this state is rife with reactionary forces, and the focus of the Justice Department’s get tough policy.
Scott Prosterman: Karl Rove’s articulated objections to the Chrysler ad, which is paraphrased as, “How dare anyone take the high road with a positive message unless is it also trashes Obama and promotes Republican ideals.”
