    • Why Labour Lost In Britain
      There’s been a vast amount of foolishness in the discussion of this. Labour lost for two main reasons: Their base was split by Brexit, and in a real way, no “positioning” could avoid this. There was a vast propaganda campaign against Corbyn in particular and Labour in general. What urban liberals don’t seem to understand […]

It’s all over but the recriminations

Ted Kennedy's Successor

It’s all over, and a Republican will replace Ted Kennedy in the Senate. What does it all mean? Will the Obama administration get it? Or will they continue arrogantly on as the Bush III administration? I’m afraid it will be the latter.

As for me, I’m glad I voted for Martha Coakley, but I’m going to enjoy watching the repercussions of Brown’s unlikely win. The progs have already started to rationalize, but some Dems seem to get it.

Why Massachusetts Doesn’t Matter

Former Mayor Ray Flynn’s diagnosis

People feel like their vote is being taken granted with this powerful, one party state, and with one-party government in Washington. People want a little coalition, and a little respect… I don’t know how you regroup from something like this. There are going to be a lot of problems in the Democratic party from here on out.

Ian Welsh at Open Left

The Democratic reaction to losing Kennedy’s seat will be to do exactly what voters were punishing them for.

In 2010 Democrats will be slaughtered, absolutely slaughtered, because Obama and the senior Democratic leadership does not learn.

In 2012 Obama will become a 1 term president, and a right wing populist will get into power. That populist will turn out not to be a populist, and will do even stupider things than Obama economically (and may start a war, too).

A brilliant post by Peter Daou

It took more than half a decade, countless American and Iraqi deaths in a war based on lies, a sinking economy and the drowning of an American city to finally kill Bush-Cheney-Rove’s dream of a conservative realignment.

Democrats, controlling the White House and both houses of Congress, have managed to kill their own dream of dominance in 12 months.

Let’s hear what you think.
