    of this conversation. You'll see I was talking about the need for a full time front pager whose assignment is covering grassroots activism outside of the political structure. If he was this kind of front pager, he'd be writing about that, not crazy rethugs.

      I was thinking of what happened to other champions of the grassroots when they got front paged.  Those crazy republicans!  Yuk yuk.

        It's just my pipe dream to get a full time front pager dedicated to covering the real news of progressive grassroots activists. We get a tiny bit with Laura covering labor when the issues intersect, but it's hardly enough, and we deserve to have someone on it full time since the Dems as a Party have moved so far away from their core values and constituency.
