A Great Sign being held by a gay man standing tall

and a hateful sign being held by a man that looks like his little tiny "junk" is hanging out of his sweatpants or is that a spouge spot? Plus, what a scowl on that hateful man's face. I'm very glad that the other man had such a great sign - standing tall and not hiding behind giant sunglasses. So this is what I saw, while sitting in the car.

Leo Hindery, Jr.: America's Dirty Little Secret: Who's Really Poor in America?



Leo Hindery, Jr.: Without an immediate all-of-government commitment to creating upwards of 30 million new jobs (not the 9 million that the administration has identified), without stimulus efforts that specifically target the entire struggling middle class, and without very specific initiatives aimed at breaking the back of general wage stagnation, there is not even a medium-term prospect of anything approaching real full employment and healthy economic growth that benefits all Americans.

Steve Clemons: President Obama, A CEO Would Change Up the Team

The Obama team is failing on most major policy challenges. The president needs to strategically redeploy his closest group of advisers, change up the game, move some others in, and alter their assignments.

Sec. Tom Vilsack: Securing Our Future Through Our Children's Health

The president has identified three key strategies to build a lasting prosperity: innovation, investment, and education. All three strategies require the next generation to be healthy.

George Lakoff: Health Means Life; Health Means Freedom

Where the conservatives argue loss of freedom and life, the administration has been giving policy wonk arguments about economic and pragmatic policy details that the public cannot understand.

Gary Hart: Liberal is...Evil

If we restore the true meaning of important words like "liberal", perhaps at least a few politicians will not be afraid to use them. As a free man, and a liberal man, I know I am not.

Bill Lucey: How Do Laid-Off Journalists Reinvent Their Careers?

Unless you're Houdini or David Copperfield, it can be quite the challenge to reinvent yourself in your late 40's 50's, or even 60's to fit into the new era of journalism. But it's by no means impossible.

As hopes of bipartisan cooperation spring eternal, petty, parochial, partisan behavior keeps rearing its ugly head in Washington.

Today's Exhibit A is Sen. Richard Shelby, Republican of Alabama, who is hog tying as many as 70 White House nominations to Pentagon, State Department and other federal posts with a highly unusual mass hold request.
This means 60 votes, which the Democrats don't have anymore, are needed to unstick each appointment - which slows the process of confirming lots of vital executive branch officials to approximately the speed of molasses in February.
Shelby's fit of pique would be bad enough if it stemmed from some principled disagreement over a nominee or two or three. But he doesn't actually care about the nominees or the jobs. Shelby is in a snit because he's afraid a $35 billion Pentagon order for aerial refueling tankers might go to Boeing - rather than to a firm that has promised to build the tankers in his state. He's also miffed, according to his staff, that a proposed FBI facility might not get built in Alabama.
Senators have long used holds as behind-the-scenes bargaining tactics; members can ask party leaders to bottle up a nominee or measure until they are placated. But nobody can recall a hold this sweeping, or one provoked by such selfishness.
This is Richard Shelby: So bent on bringing home the bacon, he's willing to starve the rest of us.
