On Wednesday, the Progressive Congress News Twitter feeds and daily email feed to Congress will go silent in solidarity with the internet community, technology innovators, and all those who stand up for civil liberties. Support for internet freedom is not a Democratic or Republican position, it has brought together a wide range of websites and political perspectives in a unity of purpose rarely seen.
So this is gonna be a hit and run cause I'm crazy busy tonight...but this was too good not to diary real quick
First... to all who have been so madly donating and subscribing people ...thank you and I'm only sorry I didn't know about this effort sooner or I'd have done soup diaries galore, sadly I've been so busy this past year that I rarely make it here to visit my DKos family.
I hereby resolve to make the effort to do some kind of diary once a week...pooties, soups and yep it's campaign season so I'll keep you posted on all my mischief
For tonight... enjoy the pooties...enjoy the soup and get ready for 2012...it's gonna be a wild ride and we're all gonna need to do our part
Yep that's right .... today's is Darcy's bday... so in honor of her bday I'm gonna post a bunch of birthday pooties- notice I did NOT post the number of pooties to match her age (talk about being a crazy cat lady....) ... so pull up some cake and join the fun!
bid on these things that are up for bid in the annual Netroots Nation Auction....
because if you don't....the pooties and their friends will... for example
I bet he thinks that w/my move this week I forgot...but not only did I not forget...I've this one lol ready well since last year's bday diary
so to keep this short and sweet (just like me)...
By now you must know that Netroots Nation 2011 starts Thursday in Minneapolis.
You probably also know there are over 70 amazing panels (shameless self promotion for http://bit.ly/...), keynote speakers galore and of course ....booze.
You may know that on Saturday afternoon at 2 pm the Speakout for Good Jobs Now Tour starts with the first stop right next door to the convention center in Minneapolis with Reps. Keith Ellison, Raul Grijalva and Jared Polis.
It all started with a wordsmith press secretary and a grandiose press release that was just too over the top to ignore... and now a month later I'm happy to be writing this diary to introduce you to the winner of the ProgressiveCongress.org Newt Gingrich Press Release Contest....
That's right they do...and they'd do anything for it! They'll beg, they'll #ff you on Twitter, they might even break out into a spontaneous rap praising your amazing self... who is this amazing they?
No joke...the more dramatic- be it serious or funny- the better!
If you know me, you know that I like to joke around a lot but this diary is no joke
You read that right...starting today ProgressiveCongress.org is running a Video Contest & the grand prize winner will win an iPad2. They will also get to spend some time with Rep. Raul Grijalva, Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Warning: graphic laden diary- sorry couldn't be helped! but if you want know more about the contest without the graphics just go to the Contest Webpage
