I'm at the California Democratic Convention and the great Barbara Boxer is speaking. (She received more votes than any other candidate for the U.S. Senate in history.) She talked about how MANY filibusters the Republicans have held this year to block bills. Of course, if you read the corporate press you woldn't know there had been even one. An informed citizenry is essential to democracy and we tossed that out a few decades ago.
This just came across on Twitter: @sfbriancl Jack O'Connell on stage. Great policies. has the famed Gray Davis charisma.
