Dan Savage:

—but I believe my initial support of the Iraq invasion forever disqualifies me from holding forth on issues of national security.

Is this the end of that policy?

In future, keep your primary and get rid of your undemocratic caucus.
May 9 cgd commented on If You Like Frank Bruni's Column (and You're Terrified of the U.S.'s Political Future), Listen to This.
At around time 15:18-15:40 in the podcast, Bruni calls George W. Bush "intellectually nimble" and "sharp", but basically tongue-tied in public. I'd say his opinion is unbelievable, except I remember Bruni's awful reporting on W's campaign for the New York Times.

@16 Also don't forget that Clinton can leave a progressive legacy without a fully Democratic Congress by appointing Supreme Court justices. One seat is open now and 2 or 3 more seats could open up. The chances of a Democratic Senate next year to approve her appointments are good.

May 2 cgd commented on A Note on the Indigestion Caused By Eating Class Struggle.
What is the evidence that tomatoes make people sick? Ethylene-ripened tomatoes are probably one of the healthiest things on a pizza or hamburger.

Eating out has traditionally been for rich people. Poor people cooked beans and vegetables in a pot with water and were a lot healthier than the rich. Use a slow cooker.

As Ansel suggests, supporting down-ballot progressive Democrats is a great idea.

At 45%, self-identified liberals now make up the largest group of Democrats, and their numbers have been growing since 2000.
