Making the Day


There will not be a magic day when we wake up and it’s now OK to express ourselves publicly. We make that day by doing things publicly until it’s simply the way things are.

Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin senate candidate, on being gay in politics

In this week’s sift:

  • Nuggets of the WeekGreece, Jamie Dimon, disrespecting the president, saying “vagina” in Michigan, the end of judicial restraint, an example of American exceptionalism, and President Bush’s head on a pike.
  • If not ObamaCare, what? Either through the courts or the ballot box, Republicans mean to get rid of ObamaCare. But Mitt Romney’s plans to replace it are surprisingly thin, and the vague plans he has only look good if you’re an insurance company.
  • What senate candidates deserve your support? You can only vote for candidates in your state, but you can volunteer and give money to anybody you like. Which campaigns are the best investment of your time or money?

    Doug, thanks so much for the summary of candidates deserving $$ support. This is REALLY helpful! You always do a nice job of analysis and summary, and it also helps that you explain your criteria and reasoning. – K
