Jaime O’Neill: The reason liberals often feel so beleaguered is that when one of us speaks out, he or she is likely to be left howling in the wilderness. And we wonder why the right wingers outshout and overpower us.
Berry Craig: Anonymous bloggers with paranoic predilictions see themselves as heroes, blowing the cover off “Comrade” Obama’s “secret FEMA concentration camps” and his “clandestine UN armies.”
David Love: In a normal world, when you want to win an election, it’s all about “Get Out The Vote” efforts. But when your goal is to snatch victory from the gutter, “Block The Vote” will do.

As the uncommitted Mexican American Super Latino, I get to comment on what stupid people forget. Not so long ago, a white guy (now the Chair of the Democratic National Committee) said that his election was not going to be about “God, Guns, and Gays.” As a result, the right wingnuts went crazy with shock […]
