Saturday a.m. progressive viewing

If you’ve got some time on your hands on this fine but dismal and drizzly Saturday, has a video from a few weeks ago featuring Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas talking about his book, “American Taliban”, and taking questions about the book, the upcoming midterm elections, and the general bad craziness that’s descended upon the American political scene.

He makes some interesting points, including an idea about teabaggers that I’ve pondered from time to time — that some of them might just be regular working class people hurt by the economy, pissed off and carried away by the momentum of the teabagger juggernaut (baggernaut?) orchestrated by the very people whose policies are the source of their aggravation.  In other words, what should have been an electoral opportunity for Democrats.

To watch the whole thing, click through to FORA on “Watch the whole program” — it’s also viewable in 17 separate parts.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Oh and by the way, it’s time for Hate Mail Call!

    Love the hate mail, especially the winner so far!

    Also love this tweet from Roger Ebert on a similar subject:

    “After vetting 76,248 comments on my blog, I conclude that right-wingers, in general, cannot spell.”

    😆 It’s the home skkkooling.

    I voted “Above average” for this week’s hate mail, it was pretty good.

    Still, nothing beats “Dear Socialist Fuckstick”. That one was an all-time KKKlassic!

    The classic being: Get a brain! Morans

    That even made it into the Urban Dictionary:

    Beijing (that’s you, isn’t it?) – That’s hilarious! Definition of Moran: “Anyone with an opposing view” 😆

Wait. What?
