things that make you go, hmm

Ripley, at zen cabin, did some research on BYU connections to the Bush Administration in the wake of D. Kyle Sampson's appointment to be Chief of Staff at DOJ. "Hmm..."

    "What is our coaltion" at MyDD.

  • That's a nice diary over at My DD..

    I see what you mean about building a coalition. It often seems to me like the Dems right now are just thinking: well Bush's numbers are so low.. people will vote Democrat by default.

    That might not be the case. Even though people who would typically support a conservative president are upset with Bush.. that doesn't necessarily mean that Democrats now look appealing to them. People may still vote according to how they feel a given party supports their values. If people think that voting for a Democrat means supporting a candidate who encourages “killing babies,” then despite the tragedy that is the Bush administration, this person is still likely to think that their Republican choice is still the lesser of two evils. I guess I’m digressing into Lakoff territory..

    But ultimately, I agree in the sense that we should embrace our coalition. Our leaders should speak up about the injustices done to those who yearn to be apart of a progressive movement (and the Democratic party in general).. regardless of how bigots view them (or us, I should say). Let’s take a stance!

    (ok this is the 4th time I’ve broken my supposed break from political blogging, I swear, I'm still on break!)

  • the BYU thing is really strange. got to be something to it. perhaps i'll put it on the ePluribus Investigation site and see what the diggers find.
