    I think both parties are going to be disappointed :-) We are going to get “change” – whether it is the change people want remains to be seen. So far we have the conservatives pissed off at the fiscal policies, deficits and bailouts. The liberals are pissed off about health care reform not going the way they want. Sheesh – no one is happy.

    Wow. I would think as progressive a blog as this is, it wouldn’t continue racial stereotypes such as Native Americans having shitty, run down cars. Ever heard the term “rez rider?”

      Be thankful its pulled of the road and not straddling railroad tracks.

      Racial stereotypes? Are you telling me there isn’t abject poverty on the reservations?

      You’re the one throwing out stereotypes. Go out to Pine Ridge and tell me what you see. Except do it without resorting to stereotypes.

        JC, why don’t you go down to the Boardroom in Missoula and starting asking where their cowboy hats, belt buckles, and broken down cars are.

        Last I checked you still can’t call Indians poor even if they are poor, you insensitive bastard.

    Just FYI I’ve written the horrible un PC artist in question and asked them for a full apology. I will let you know when I get it…

    I wonder if anyone has a trademark on the “take our country back” theme. It seems to have been used by folks on both sides of the political aisle. I know Howard Dean Tom Harkin, Nancy Pelosi have used it on occasion.

    Here are just a few times (there are thousands of additional citations if you are interested) the liberals/progressives have used it as a battle cry over the past few years:
    “It may not be easy. It might not be hard. The Democratic Party will take back our country. This will not be an easy thing. It will not take a day to do it. It might take two or four years, maybe even twenty years. It will get done. We will take our country back.”
    The Kentucky Democrat

    “I am not given to defeatist thoughts,however, I am becoming more and more convinced that our party leaders have no plan to take our country back. “

    “Patriots like George Soros are readying return fire in that fight. But it will take action by all of us, especially those of us with the means to contribute, to take back our country.”
    Act Blue

    “Here are various progressive causes around the nation seeking to “Take Back Our Country”
    Within The Black Community

    “Last week, Howard Dean gave one of his great “everyone on your feet” speeches at the Take Back America conference in Washington DC. More than 2,000 progressive leaders, activists, and thinkers heard Gov. Dean and others speak. “
    Winning Back America

    Here are a few Progressive/Liberal books that carry the Take Back Our Contry Theme:

    Begala and Carville: Take It Back: Our Party, Our Country, Our Future
    Larry Flynt Calls For A National Strike Day To Take Back Our Government
    AFL-CIO – Take Back America In 2007

    For you music lovers out there (jhwyGirl please take note) here is a rather catchy tune. (As they would have said on American Band Stand many decades ago – “It has a good beat and its easy to dance to.”
