LIFE ON MARS:

Liberal bloggers target Rep. Wynn for primary (S.A. Miller, November 30, 2007, Washington Times)

A national coterie of liberal bloggers and Internet sites — collectively known as "netroots" — are pushing a primary challenge against eight-term Democratic Rep. Albert R. Wynn of Maryland and have their sights set on other Democrats whom they deem too cozy with President Bush and Republicans in Congress.

"We are already to the left. ... I don't know where they want to take the party," said Mr. Wynn, who has a solid Democratic voting record, including votes in favor of every antiwar measure this year and high scores from unions, environmentalists, homosexual rights groups and the pro-choice lobby.


Back to 1973!

It's easy to appear "left" rather than to actually be "left".

Whatever we are paying these guys, it's cheap at the price.

Not 1973 - Carl Albert and Mike Mansfield were the Congressional leadership. The 'new' Left wants to go back to 1792.
