❂ A blogger briefly recounts his meeting with Bill Clinton, concerning the significance of the "new" progressive era, one in which the blogosphere serves as a “counterveiling source of progressive pressure” for elected Democrats
❂ Celebrations of Obama's election may be over, but that doesn't mean progressives should cool their heels and take a breather. If you haven't read Frank Rich's Op-Ed piece from Sunday's Times, it discusses the ominous nature of the growing use of violent rhetoric from conservative-fringe loonies and respectable G.O.P. members alike. Liberals be warned...it's a dangerous world out there
❂ Steve Kornacki from PolitickerNY.com muses over new 31-31 stalemate in the New York State Senate, after Hiram Monserrate flipped back to the good ol’ Dems yesterday. According to him, all the Democrats have to do is wait.
❂ Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, one of the men responsible for the 9/11 attacks, now testifies that information he provided (while being waterboarded up to 183 times in one month) was “made up.”
❂ The Peruvian Congress is having second thoughts after attempts to legislate the use of the Amazon sparked protests between locals and the authorities

The GOP was wrong when they were in charge
Decades of conservative State Senate control
And while the right-wing screams against
Whether their targets are in Kansas or DC,
Who knows what damage they'll do next?
Share your sorrow & share ideas for our country

The right-wingers calls themselves "pro-life,"
They call themselves pro-life, but they're anti-health,
They call themselves pro-life, but what kind of life
The Right may call themselves pro-life,
Come Live Liberally with like-minded lefties

To the highest court in the land, the Prez nominates
The pick in DC offers a compelling American story
As the right-wing opposes her confirmation,
Democrats are pleased with her Supreme quality;
With Sonia Sotomayor, all Americans
Drinking Liberally began on May 29th, 2003 --

Congress takes on meaningful credit card reform
The President declares healthcare is a priority
The Dems get elected on campaign promises
At least Obama announced a meaningful move
Have a cool drink to temper the hot air

Who knew that Al Franken wasn't the Minnesota Senate candidate who'd get the biggest laughs?
Before Al was the perpetual-nearly-seated-Senator, he was most famous for Saturday Night Live and "Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot." So we expected his campaign would be, well, funny.
Turns out Al ran a serious, focused campaign that upset an incumbent and will have placed him in the US Senate, once the shenanigans pass.
Not so funny.
His opponent, though, Norm Coleman, continues to deliver the laughs...as he does in this video, brought to us by our friends at Norm Dollar:
Yes, that's Norm signing autographs as he's being told that progressives have pledged a dollar a day for each day he remains a sore loser. The campaign is up to $100,000...and Norm's pettiness remains the norm.
Thanks for the laughs, Norm...though in the end Al will have a big guffaw, because he who laughs last laughs loudest.
