Who Cares About DeLay's Indictment, Really?

The bigger problem is the influence of lobbyists anyway. We should be targeting the role of lobbyists generally and going after The K Street Project specifically. Yeah, DeLay has been involved in highly questionable acts, but so are a lot of politicians. We need to go after the cause of the problem, not just a specific instance. I think Grover Norquist epitomizes the problems are country is facing generally: from lobbyists to anti-government philosophy.

Nothing personal against Mr. Norquist, but I think his work is wrecking our government. And that's a much bigger problem than just DeLay. It's time we start giving the American people an alternative to the Norquist (et al) "worldview". Poll after poll after poll indicate that they are in a minority and the silent majority is letting them dictate policy.

POSTSCRIPT: My discussion of the bigger problems is basically an attempt to a.) show that we understand the real problems and b.) give ourselves a chance to propose both general and specific plans. As a recent strategy memo from Democracy Corps notes people are eager to have a new vision for our country:
[V]oters are looking for an alternative vision and direction for the country...They want energy done in a new way; they want government done in a new way. This is a moment when Democrats can get heard on their plans and their direction for the country...They are looking for an alternative vision that calls on our country to set new priorities and invest in our own people.
BTW, the political environment is much different in swing states but from conversations during my excursion, they are getting desparate for a change. It's time Democrats clearly enumerate what that change is.

Companies Unaware of Blog Threat to Brands
I can't say im surprised to learn that two thirds of companies surveyed are unaware of blog threats to their brands , but it's interesting to note now a figure has been put on it.
"You're thoughts have struck a chord in me. I would like to book mark you for future reference."
I just happened to stumble across your blog by accident. I have a seo forum site/blog and if you do get the chance to visit us sometime, I will be grateful - Many thanks!

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
Thanks
