If you have "no place to go," come here!

Those "over-zealous" Republican campaign workers are at it again!

And, gosh darn it, they're trying to suppress the vote, too! Why on earth would they that? AP:

State investigators on Friday searched an office of a Republican congressional candidate whose campaign mailed thousands of intimidating letters to Hispanic immigrant voters.

Must a Heart Bleed Out Before We See the Light?

Michael J. Fox, in a game appearance on camera, delivers a message to voters in Missouri on behalf of Claire McCaskill and her campaign for the U.S. Senate.

See the video here.

This political commercial gives the lie to the so-called "Values Party." It gives the lie to it entirely.

Friday News Dump: Nominees?

My bet is here. Filed under "it would be irresponsible not to speculate." And before you get scoffing too hard, remember which media outlet was the first target of the anthrax attacks.

Post your catches here. Links are good. [a href=linkylinkylink]Name of Link or Snarky Headline[/a]. Instead of "[" and "]" use the left and right arrows located at shift-comma and shift-period. Nuttin' to it. Read below the fold...

Why al-Sadr Took Kut-al-Amara

Say some enemy had occupied the US and you disliked this occupation. You had some forces under your command, and sympathetic locals inside several cities. It would mean one thing if you sent your troops to openly take possession of, oh, say, Chicago, but it would mean something else entirely to take back Philadelphia, Cradle of Liberty, home of Independence Hall and all that. Or if you had to work on a slightly smaller scale, a retaking of Gettysburg would send a different message than the liberation of Paducah. Read below the fold...

Rovian Dishonesty

Get a load of this from Karl's Mighty Wurlitzer:

Pesky Constitution's Bill of Attainder

A presumed Gentleman named Ed Furey writes to Professor Juan Cole about bills of attainder. Seems those Revolutionaries who founded our nation knew a thing or two about a thing or two...they left clear instructions on what was permissable and what was taboo: Read below the fold...

Bush had the nails for the Constitution's coffin all ready

Never let it be said that the Republicans are incompetent at everything; it's time to lay that meme to rest at last. After all, they're extremely good at lying, stealing, manimalism, and just generally changing the subject and getting away with it. Read below the fold...

California Coalition for Immigration Reform - Jim Crow in Orange County?

Leah. sent me this article about attempts at voter suppression in Orange county. It reminds me that we still have a long way to go. We often narrate the promise of America in terms of an Athenian Utopia, one in which the people gather together and through regulated discourse make their will known concerning the efficient allocation of resources for the common good. We often forget the reality, that alongside this Athenian utopian identity – the city on a hill there is the dark side of the American identity – Sparta. The Spartan America is one where the masses are terrorized into submission by the terrorism of the elite; this is the America of the Helots.In the old days we used to call them Paddy Rollers, Patrollers, the Ku Klux Klan. Today we call them Minute Men, or the California Coalition for Immigration Reform. No matter their name, their aim was universal – the subversion of constitutional mechanisms for the maintenance of luxury through the systematic use of terror. Read below the fold...

Our Treaty with the Romulans is in Jeopardy!

Thread: 

Wow. Scientists make shit invisible. They're saying they're years off from a workable "cloak" and will need better nanotech, but I bet we'll get there. Science is so cool. Let's bring it back when we've got a Dem majority next year. Read below the fold...
