A Lifeline For Democrats?

The actual question is- will they take it? I’m pretty neutral about whether Keith Ellison or Tom Perez would be better on the issues, Ellison is hardly a paragon of Left values and has only become more and more wimbly as the DNC Leadership contest has continued. He was never as Left as Corbyn, who …

Why Concentrate On Quislings?

First of all, it’s effective. I find it hard to believe that anyone with a political memory greater than a Fruit Fly (Goldfish have surprisingly long memories and can be trained using standard animal conditioning techniques, Fruit Flies’ entire lifespans can be measured in hours) doesn’t remember the over hyped but still effective Teabagger movement …
