Don't Be Afraid to Make Things Up

The face of the netroots and an excellent sign for November.

Lamont Relied On Net Roots -- And Grass Roots:
"From Day One, the man who became Connecticut's Democratic nominee for the Senate on Tuesday stuck to a simple message: The war in Iraq was wrong and Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman was wrong to continue supporting it. But while Lamont's success has been widely attributed to the rising power of the antiwar movement and liberal Internet bloggers, the 52-year-old upstart from Greenwich became a political giant-killer by blending both new- and old-style politics. He tapped the Net roots to promote his cause -- but the grass roots to win over voters."
Keep in mind that the Moron Media (being the Main Stream Media) wants to paint this as the radical liberals taking over the party. (A) Our radicals are too stoned to take over anything other than a Ben and Jerry's. They get motivated for 2 things: Burning Man and a G8 Economic Summit. (B) No matter how hard our radicals tried to damage anything, they couldn't produce an enth of the destruction the reicht's... sorry, I mean right's radicals can (or has). (C) Our radicals are not in charge nor will they ever be organized enough to be in charge. Summary; Our radicals are benign, the right's radicals are battery acid looking to corrode any and everything they can touch.

Here is a good historical perspective from an unlikely sourse:

Daily Kos: "Moving Left"

Also, Keep this in mind if you still watch the talking hairdos on the fake news channels when they harp on and on about ball less Democrats who want to run away from the fictional "War on Terra". Especially when they just make shit up day to day often contradicting what they reported the day before.

Poll: 60 percent of Americans oppose Iraq war - Aug 9, 2006:
"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sixty percent of Americans oppose the U.S. war in Iraq, the highest number since polling on the subject began with the commencement of the war in March 2003, according to poll results and trends released Wednesday.

And a majority of poll respondents said they would support the withdrawal of at least some U.S. troops by the end of the year, according to results from the Opinion Research Corporation poll conducted last week on behalf of CNN. The corporation polled 1,047 adult Americans by telephone."
I written it before and I'll write it again... We don't oppose war per se, we oppose this bullshit war because it was illegal, it is draining our treasure, and it is killing our military that we need when the time comes to fight REAL fucking wars, and AND it had nothing to do with terrorism until we made it a training ground for terrorist:

So how's this workin' for ya?

You get what you vote for, ay?

Via Thinkprogress:
Meanwhile, President Bush’s 2007 budget proposed funding “less than half of what the recent energy bill promised for renewable energy and energy efficiency — the two most readily available opportunities to break our addiction to oil.”
You need to check out Steuart Beck's perfomance on the Colbert Report. He is Palau's ambassador to the U.S. If you remember I've visited Palau and have a great friend who works for the President. So, Meet an Ally on The Colbert Report - Palau Pt. 1 and 2

More from Mr. Colbert. He captures the MSM and Republican essence perfectly:

Be an Expert on Anything:
"DON'T BE AFRAID TO MAKE THINGS UP. Never fear being exposed as a fraud. Experts make things up all the time. They’re qualified to."
