The Hillbilly Report likes Ashley Judd, but it seems many Democratic big wigs don't.
I don't live in Kentucky, and I am not a Democrat; but I think it would be a mistake to underestimate Kentucky voters. Read below the fold...

Matt Stoller writes in The Progressive Case Against Obama on salon:
Under Bush, economic inequality was bad, as 65 cents of every dollar of income growth went to the top 1 percent. Under Obama, however, that number is 93 cents out of every dollar. That’s right, under Barack Obama there is more economic inequality than under George W. Bush. ... most of this shift happened in 2009-2010, when Democrats controlled Congress. This was not, in other words, the doing of the mean Republican Congress. And it’s not strictly a result of the financial crisis; after all, corporate profits did crash, like housing values did, but they also recovered, while housing values have not. Read below the fold...

Well this is odd.
This is the first I've heard of Democrats allowing Greens to darken their doorstep, much less invite them. This was probably a superflous dog and pony show on the part of the Donkeys, but still. WTF? Has anyone told Markos?
Are they really seeing the light, or are they scared shitless that "Independent" is now the most popular political affiliation in the U.S.?

Salon.com's news editor, Steve Kornacki, lamented yesterday that "Obama won’t face a credible primary challenge", going on about how the closest thing to a liberal challenge he has comes from Republican candidate Buddy Roemer. While it is true that many liberals aren't seeing any "viable" candidates materialize on the left, Kornacki isn't telling us why that is: the failure of supposedly liberal pundits to report on candidates who are actually running.

Let me let you in on what I am up to:
President Obama is being challenged in the Democratic Primaries and Caucuses. That's right; someone is stepping up to hold him accountable for his lack of progressive and liberal vision and leadership.
Is it Dennis Kucinich? No. Alan Grayson? I could only wish, though I am glad to see him running for his former seat in the House. We'll need champions like him in there.
No, it's me. *I* am challenging the President. So, naturally, you want to know who the hell am I to try something like this, yes? Read below the fold...

While talking of Ratigan's recent rant Jane says a few encouraging words that make me wonder if she is seeing through the Kabuki Theater that is Washington DC party politics and looking for a way out of the pond that all shallow enders occupy:
We’re in a class war. The rich are getting wealthy at the expense of everyone else, raping and pillaging both the economy and the middle class. Things continue to get better for them as they get worse for you, and both parties are complicit in making that happen. Read below the fold...

And so, I take a bow, make a leg, tip my hat, and offer my profoundest and most sincere thanks to the man who makes it all possible, Lambert. My weekend started a few hours ago, so forgive me for this rant but I don't feel like doing any real work and this issue actually has a bit of political relevance in addition to just me being a fawning fan. Thank you, Lambert. And fuck you, JSKit, Disqus, Blogger, WordPress, Facebook and all the rest of you fucking lazy ass motherfuckers who have seen fit to deny me almost all of my other regular blogs. You suck. He rocks. Read below the fold...

In these days when the very idea of being represented by a union seems to be radical again, thanks to Joe Baca (I had to go look you up!) for this:
Amends the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 to eliminate the provision making a federal, state, or local government employee who is dismissed for participating in a strike against the federal government, the state, or a political subdivision of the state ineligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps).
