Former Bush Aide Pushes ‘Conservative Case’ For Gay Marriage : NPR

Civil rights are conservative in their nature, so I look forward to seeing this element of the political platform embraced. -Poliblogger One hundred thirty-one prominent Republicans have signed a pro-same-sex marriage legal brief that is clearly at odds with the House GOP leadership and the party’s platform in the most recent election. Because of the prominence of the signers, the brief stands out among the more than 150 friend-of-the-court briefs filed in two same-sex marriage cases to be argued at the U.S. Supreme Court this week. The man who rounded up the group is Ken Mehlman, the former political director […]

The Occupy and Tea Party Beer Summit

The Occupy and Tea Party Beer Summit

Watch: The Occupy and Tea Party Beer Summit | Mother Jones. How do you get tea partiers and occupiers at the same table? Buy lots of beer.

A few occupy protesters and CPAC-goers took a break from yelling at each other one night to trade rounds at a nearby bar. Here’s a condensed version of journalist Eddie Becker’s By Josh Harkinson of Mother Jones on Wed. February 15, […]

Rally at the SEC against Secret Money in Politics is gaining momentum

  The Citizens United reform movement has caught some momentum over the last few days as the protests at the SEC have started to ramp up. “The SEC can do something about the fact that money is taking over the political process,” said Bill de Blasio, the public advocate for New York City. “They can force publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending. It’s not a lot to ask to simply disclose what they’re doing.

They spend the millions that they don’t pay in taxes to control our government with misleading commercials, political donations, and an army of lobbyists camped out on K Street.   In return, politicians INSIDE our government feign alarm over the deficits created by the tax loopholes their corporate […]
