Wanted: ODP Leadership. Only those with change voices need apply. Brian can’t find his (from Toledo Blade):

Brian Rothenberg, an Ohio Democratic Party spokesman, said, “This is the first time in a long time that Ohioans want change and the Republicans are not change agents. And they’re struggling with that. We’re struggling to find our voice of change, and I think it will crystallize around February or March.”

Speaking to the Press Step 1: Don’t freaking admit you and your party are clueless. Might be true, but best not to admit it! Step 2: Try not to make timed-based […]

Syriana Outing

On December 5, 2005 By

I mentioned this at the last Drinking Liberally and got a pretty good response so I’m going ahead with the planning. Syriana is the new film with George Clooney and Matt Damon that deals with oil and Mid-East relations. The idea is to all gather to watch the movie then meet someplace just after that for drinks and chat – it’s a Delaware DL event afterall!

We’re on! Friday night, December 9th at 8:00pm at Marcus Crosswoods. Let’s meet around 7:30pm or so at Panera just next door. Idea would be to view the film and then hit a nearby […]

Got a call from a local friend and activist to tell me that there was an article out in the latest print edition of The Nation.

I was at the meeting they talk about, and started this blog soon after that, started a chapter of Drinking Liberally soon after that, and am now investigating starting a progressive action group in Delaware County. So maybe there […]

LA Times: “Private Security Guards in Iraq Operate With Little Supervision

Kudos to the LA Times. Finally someone picked this up and ran with it. Remember the three “soldiers” who were burned and hung from a bridge last year? They were PMFs accussed by the Iraqis of shooting innocent people. We got mad, right? The story was used all over right wing radio to embolden us to continue to fight “the insurgents”. As has usually happened with this war in Iraq, time and information yield a bit more to the story than first appeared. Watch this video […]

Strickland on Meet The Bloggers

On December 5, 2005 By

The crew of Meet The Bloggers sat down with Ted Strickland in a local Cleveland coffee house to talk about his campaign for Governor. The streaming audio is available, as is the full transcript (minus the stuff not audible – the guys are working on improving the process).

This is really good stuff and is another way that blogs allow for extended conversations with political candidates. Paul Hackett is up next and Sherrod Brown has been invited but thus far has not committed one way or the other. Maybe Philip has yet to read rule number 9. […]
