Tomorrow will be a day filled with much media fun. My schedule you ask?

(All times are EST)

8:00 AM - Young Turks segment on Republican Sexcapades. They lost control of both houses - And nothing cures depression like committing an act in private you would publicly outlaw

10:30 AM - MSNBC Live. We talk about what the election means. I probably hurl a gratuitious insult at Republicans because it's kinda fun.

3:30PM - Bill Mazer radio progam in New York on WVOX. You can listen if in range or online at

That concludes our irregularly scheduled broadcast

Mornin' Cliff-

*Sigh*, now you've done and given me another website I have to check every morning!!

It's amazing how I feel like a weight is being lifted from me!! Opening my eyes in the morning isn't as scary as it used to be!!

I hope the Dems' do one visible thing to distance themselves from a R Congress- work a 5 day week!!
Out of all the possible little things they could do, that would really resonate with mid-america. I really can't count the number of times I've heard that mentioned in the past two years!!

As they say, Onward & Upward!

I agree with you on having that weight lifted off your shoulders.

I think of this election in the analogy of planning a wedding. You spend every waking moment making plans, calling people, and trying to be sure that "no stone has been left unturned". Then after the wedding (election), celebration (Oh yeah!) and realize that there is more work to do.

I haven't hit the ground running like Cliff has...(still getting over the celebration, yikes!), but it's time to find out what to work on to be ready for the 2008 election (future). I think right now, I'm leaning towards getting those voting machines working and safe...a paper trail.

I'm just so happy that Dems will be setting the agenda. If I see one more bill about flag burning wasting our time....I will scream. I think the middle class will finally have some relief and that's a LOT of people. It will feel good to be considered relevant again.

Heh. Gawd it's nice to have pundits who know how to read and remember what they read...

"Date rape". hehehehe

Hi Cliff -
I'm really hoping the Democrats now get to the business of business and not the pettiness of the Republicans (which, granted, brings more people to blogs, but is not what runs us as a nation). Perhaps blogs could be used for real interaction - tell us what is being done to help us in each district and find out what people there are wanting....

And, I know Rove is trying to figure out how to turn this around. Right now, I'm sure he said to play nice so they can point to the Dems as the first ones unwilling to work together....therefore, they CAN'T fix the budget, the war, the plight of the middle class...

I hope we see REAL things happen from the Dems.

Sorry to put a crimp in your schedule paddy. I assume you were watching MSNBC from the "date rape" remark. He was being such a wimp that I couldn't really act nasty as I wanted to :)

Mary Ellen, give yourself more credit, you were part of Moveon's operation, one of the most succesfful, if you look at turnout, in election history. Well done!!

Jill, you know we disagree to a certain point, but blogs can be used for positive campaigns. But remember the Republicans won in the mid-90s by tearing Clinton down. I don't say we limit ourselves to that. But we present positive alternatives (minimum wage hikes, stem cell research expansion, cuts in student loans interest) and if he opposes us, then we play the way he has the last 6 years.

That is my humble opinion.
