I can't believe that no one has referenced this yet. Apparently this was released yesterday. I am not sure who the polling outfit is, but it was all over the news. How can you all have missed it? I ...

A Fundamental Misunderstanding
Hello All. It's been a while since I posted on here. My last diary was ripped to shreds by people who had the belief that I was a shill for a telecom company, rather than an employee of said ...

Living on Government Cheese
This diary is inspired by Cynthia Davis, the brain-dead political hack from Missouri who thinks that supplying food to hungry children is somehow a bad thing. I won't argue her point. To argue this ...

Time is running out on McCain
I first stumbled across the mad geniuses at Five Thirty-Eight through Daily Kos. I was immediately hooked. It became my habit to chart the progress of the race very few weeks to see how events were ...

Barack Obama is Jackie Robinson
Other than politics, my other passion is baseball. I have been a fan of the game for as long as I can remember. I have been priveleged enough to be a fan of one of the premier franchises of baseball (

Calling myself out
To tell the truth, I haven't always been a Democrat. When I was a teenager, I rooted for Bush Senior in the 1988 presidential election. I cannot really explain myself, other to reference a childhood ...
