Brilliance or Baffoonery?

If I were conspiracy minded, I would have thought it was a brilliant strike against us. They used our convention to attack our sponsor, but we did’t even get a mention.

Two and a Half Years Later

After the 2004 election, a small group of us decided we would join our voices with others to make sure we were heard next time around. It looks like we are going to do it.

Second annual convention invites candidates to answer questions from the blogosphere and engage netroots participants in unscripted citizen dialogue.

JULY 12, 2007—YearlyKos Convention organizers announced today that Sen. Hillary Clinton confirmed her participation in the Presidential Leadership Forum to be held August 4 in Chicago.

I Still Love Howard Dean

Today we announced that Howard Dean would be speaking at YearlyKos along with Sen. Durbin, Gen. Clark, and, of course, Markos.

Nice, huh.

YKC Leadership Forum Makes the Situation Room


Thanks to Terminal3 for snagging the video!

We also made Brit Hume's show on FOX, but I don't have that video.

Bullshit Argument About Iraq Funding

While I lean towards sending the same bill back to the President, I'm not an expert and could be wrong. I believe there can be legitimate disagreement on the best way to support the troops. That's what the argument should be about, how to support the troops best. Saying we need to get out, while true, is not enough. What steps need to be taken to get there? Everyone is mad at the Dems because they are "weak." I'm mad at the Dems because I haven't seen a good argument for how to out of there. Can someone please move the discussion forward?

Punk. Soldier. Blogger. And now author. A young veteran shares his war stories.

It was a surreal week for the 28-year-old soldier-turned-author. On Sunday he learned he was the second recipient of the $10,000 LuLu Blooker Prize for his "blook" (book based on a blog), "My War: Killing Time in Iraq," and on Monday, the Defense Department announced that it would cut off access to file-sharing sites such as YouTube and MySpace on 5 million Pentagon-issued computers -- an apparent reaction to bloggers reporting from the front lines. (Soldiers still have access to the sites on their personal computers and can log on to them at privately owned Internet cafes on their bases.)

Now THIS is Clever (but it's not an endorsement)

not sure why, but this used to be animated, with the map moving from one event to another. hrmph,

The Edwards campaign is using this tool so that bloggers can promote their Support the Troops, End the War action.

The challenges of change are always hard. It is important that we begin to unpack those challenges that confront this nation and realize that we each have a role that requires us to change and become more responsible for shaping our own future.
