Ok – The Lieberman thing has got us pissed off – just like we were in the Spring of 2004.

People who had taken our Democracy for granted started to work hard and looked  for a way to take our country back.  Promoting and supporting the grassroots revolution was some new comers to our world, net roots through blogs like Dailykos and Talking Points Memo, Crooks and Liars, and progressive talk radio with Air America Radio

I became so immersed with progressive talk radio that I had my husband threaten to leave me, my children cringe the minute we got into the car, and my job was in peril due to having head phones on all day for 24/7.

We listened, we read, we blogged, we volunteered, we voted.  We voted Lieberman out of the party in 2006.  That was not a mistake that was the "base" sending a message – do everything but be a Democratic and progressive and you will be challenged.  While the 2006 Senate primary was just the beginning in raising our voices it was not the end.   The old school Democrats  foiled the revolution in Connecticut, but now they are regretting  that support.

Then we saw poor management – Air America trying to go main stream, missing the whole point!  With that they switched and made programming changes from Sam Seder to Lionel (still cannot get my head around that one) they made a big deal out of Randi Rhodes doing some private stand up routine (lost her).  And since that time I have felt a hole a big hole in the circle that is progressive information.

Well in a day full of gloom there is some shinning light.  All of you original fans to the Majority Report and Morning Sedition it is time to come back to the fold.

There is a new horizon on the progressive front.... entered after a long delay a new medium – Internet based progressive talk.....Maron V Seder – yes you heard that right...Mark Maron and Sam Seder (under Air America media) have a new platform that combines their wittiness, political acumen and a new media presentation that is just really cool.

They are broadcasting on Maron V Seder @ 3:00 pm. Est daily.   The show is currently only an hour – need to make it longer no doubt – but it is a start.  
Yesterday they cracked the 500 online users - Join them tomorrow – check it out – Mark’s work and video shorts for the UK Guardian in the lead up to the elections – were just amazing!

Come join us - tomorrow @ 3:00 pm Eastern time...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
