Missing the point of the tragedy

Open letter to Catholic Women
I know that this letter will sound snarky, and I know that I will get lots of "what the hell do you know" comments, but honestly the question I pose is sincere. I'm prepared to be flamed for ...

Why I did it - Lifetime Subscription
I know that a lot of the DK community can't afford to subscribe, and I wish that I could give out some free subscriptions. My wife and I are doing okay, but not great (from our rung on the ladder we ...

Barack Obama is stupid
He was dumb to think that a man with a black African father could be elected president of the USA. He was stupid to believe that in a post 9/11 world a man with the middle name of Hussein could ...

Talk to everyone, then do it again.
My mother is 78 years old. She doesn't follow politics - at all. She is very hard of hearing. Usually, she asks my advice on who to vote for. We talk things over, and she pretty much votes the way ...

I've been reading DKos for several years and just started contributing a couple of weeks ago - so I probably haven't earned a rant diary yet. But the "chicken little diary" pissed me off. Yes some ...

Attacking Palin
We need to get organized on how to fight the Bush/McCain/Palin ticket. Let's learn from the Repubs. They have already managed to brand her as a "reformer" and a "maverick". We need to be ...
