This is what Politics and Public Service are supposed to be about

Yesterday, on the steps of 1278 Sledge, we had an old-fashioned political rally from the front porch of Steve Haley's house. Steve, as you know, is the Cracker endorsee for the Democratic nomination for Senate 29 and is running opposite Ophelia Ford.

I sent out Rick's terrific post at the Freedonian to my list earlier, and some issue was taken over it. Yesterday was not at all about Ophelia, it's about changing the way we do politics in Memphis, Shelby County, the state of Tennessee, and hopefully all over the country. It's why I support Ned Lamont over Joe Lieberman, and why I support Steve Haley. Ophelia Ford, as I said earlier, is a nice person who works hard, and that's great.

This is about clean money and clean elections, period.

Hi. I’ve been a long time reader of your blog and several other local progressive blogs. Last week I saw an ad for the Memphis Flyer's Best of Memphis and this week I saw the WTL's 9th District poll. The two things gave me an idea. The local progressive bloggers work hard, and it would be nice for them to get recognized for their work. So I decided to invent the "Bloggy" award to give to them. Check http://bloggyawards.blogspot.com/ for some proposed categories and nominees. If you don’t think this is a stupid idea, I’d appreciate it if you posted it on your blog and stopped by and suggested some good nominees. After a week or so, if I have any response I will post the nominees on a poll.
