This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

Incredible Idea

Political Wire on a suggestion by Walter Cronkite in the NYT:

"A suggestion by which the Democratic Party could command the greatest public attention for its positive agenda: It could within weeks call an extraordinary midterm convention to draw up its platform.

The convention would not need to be expensive. The delegates could be those who attended the 2004 convention. Their meeting would be open to the public and of course the press.

In sharp contrast to the secrecy of the Bush administration, it would let the public, if only remotely, share in the construction of the Democratic platform."

They could base their platform on Steven Pizzo's Progressive Contract With America at News For Real

Walter Cronkite to the rescue, again. I really miss him doing the evening news, back when it was worth watching.

I'm sure Howard Dean would be all for the idea. The problem would be gettin' all the yahoos to go along with it.

But then we don't need all those yahoos anyway. they haven't done squat for any of us, in fact they've been a big part of the problem.

PS: As long as you're gonna let me have my matches back you can light some, too.

Sounds good to me. Anything Democrats can do to show the public that they ARE the opposition party and that they DO stand for something is alright with me. I'd love to see the Republicans' jaws drop. I can just hear them saying "CRAP!" No Snoopy dance yet but sounds good if they would just do it.
