What Gene says

Gene Lyons in Countering the GOP noise machine Salon 01/20/10:

[M]y view is that many of Obama's political problems stem from a broader Democratic inability to counter the infernal GOP noise machine -- a failure now two decades old. Republican rejectionism ought to have been clear to the White House from the moment they voted unanimously against the economic stimulus -- cynically betting that recovery would come too late for the 2010 elections. They cannot be won over, only defeated.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
