I’ve already tossed up a longer post about what’s so very wrong with GOP dinosaurs getting their panties all twisted about yesterday’s filibuster. But here are two hopeful signs. 1. During the filibuster, RNC Chair Reince Preibus publicly urged all Republican members to go to the Senate floor and “help out” 2. Senate Minority Leader [...]
In Which Eric Holder Takes Care of His Correspondence Whilst Mssrs Graham and McCain Pursue Political Hari-Kari

And, on that note, may hordes of angry voters wing you to irrelevance and powerlessness: John, Lindsey, you have brought shame on your office and neither of you is fit to serve the Americans – and that is the official editorial position of the Peoples Press Collective. Rand Paul, meanwhile, has a lifetime honorary membership [...]

PPC Contributor Bob Adelmann has an interesting article on just why the never-before-reported news of re-elected State GOP Chair Ryan Call’s arrest came out on the eve of his re-election. I think Bob offers an interesting take, but I think there are several other plausible reasons for the odd timing. Relying on comments from John [...]
Will Colorado State GOP Completely Drive Off a Leftist Cliff with Ryan Call or Turn Back to the Right?
by Michelle Morin | 7:26 am, March 2, 2013
Today’s the day. It’s election day in the Colorado State GOP. It’s the day the Republican Party – both here in Colorado and nationally – either drives off a leftist cliff or turns back to the right and starts to become the party which can actually stand up to and push back against the leftist [...]

Angelo Codevilla at Forbes published an excellent analysis last week exploring the real nature of the Republican Party’s internal divisions and the repeated failures those divisions produce – As Country Club Republicans Link Up With The Democratic Ruling Class, Millions Of Voters Are Orphaned In a nutshell, the problem is that the bulk of Republican [...]

Freshly back from one of those political confabs where business cards get passed around like canapes and, ideally, fatigued activists get a boost, I’ve been thinking (still) about the grave problems that face the GOP, right-sympathetic Independents, and all the satellite organizations of the American Rightwing. As such, this may come off as the product [...]
Privacy Bills in the Colorado Legislature So Far, or, In Which The Washington Bureau Chief Thinks She Should Control the Committee Schedules
by Eileen | 1:43 pm, February 11, 2013
I thought I’d take a look at the privacy related bills in play in the current legislative session and see where they are. HB 13-1015, Tracy Kraft-Tharp’s bid to turn over data about mental health treatments to a government run database, passed Health, Insurance, and Environment 9-2 and now awaits action by the entire House.

The RSC fired a guy for disagreeing with them. Blah, what else is new? If you could round up all the people fired, de-funded, and blacklisted from the Old Guard of the right, you could put together an utterly brilliant firm. Yes, of course there are people who deserved to be fired who were fired. [...]

No, I’m not talking about the jacked up “Deal” from the Senate. Nope, I’m talking about the Republican Party which helped pass this monstrosity.
Very little in cuts for a lot in tax hikes. That’s the “compromise” Republicans made. Their position will…

The interview with Grover Norquist over at Breitbart.com has been getting a lot of attention over the past few days, mainly for Norquist’s prediction that a second Tea Party wave is coming. Professor Jacobson jumps on the bandwagon: The first Tea Party wave was a threat to Democratic control of Congress, and the response was [...]keep looking »
