Taylor Marsh has a guest piece at Informed Comment/Juan Cole, "The Party's Over": 'There’s a reason Obama reelect doesn’t have a slogan. All they’ve got is a question: Are you in?... Pres. Obama can’t find a reelection slogan because his 2012 campaign boils down to the reality that “hope and change” has been reduced to “Republicans are worse.”' (Read her explanation here.) I don't disagree with Marsh, but she's just now realising this? Doesn't she remember the Clinton and Kerry campaigns? Establishment corporatist Democratic Party politicos have used that fear slogan before and the stupid voters just fall for it. Fucking liberals and the so-called left have only themselves to blame if they do it again in 2012.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
