Donate to Darcy Burner

I’m in the middle of some serious weeds on the Ghorbanifar meetings and then I’ve got to empty out a fridge again because Sears can’t deliver on what it says it can deliver on. So I’ll be a while this morning before I say anything interesting.

But in the meantime, please do me a favor and donate to Darcy Burner.

  • Do it because AIPAC is beating Darcy up for sponsoring responsible policies in the Middle East rather than more war-mongering.
  • Do it because Darcy has spoken out early and often against telecom immunity.
  • Do it because her opponent is a sexist prick.
  • Do it because her race is very tight, and winning this race will send almost as strong a message to the capitulation Dems in DC as Donna Edwards beating Al Wynn.

Today’s the last day of the funding quarter, so you should donate to as many better Democrats as you can. But please include Darcy among those you donate to today.

    Waxman is still jousting with the DOJ over the Bush/Cheney interview reports. DOJ stiffed him and now he wants to know what agreements Fitzgerald had with the WH. He wrote directly to Fitzgerald.

    • BayStateLibrul says:

      Many thanks.
      Wax is de-stonewalling, one brick at a time.
      Based on what Bates said, can’t Congress haul Mukasey’s arse into jail until he produces the documents?

    4 – WO, you’re fast. I was just reading that letter too. Isn’t Waxmen asking Fitz for the reasons DOJ has declined to share specific materials? You think DOJ sent Fitz a response in writing as to which materials he can send to Oversight, which he cannot, and why? I think they’re smarter than that. If you keep the reasons undocumented, they can’t be held up to scrutiny.

    I don’t see how that ad demonstrates that Dave Reichert is “a sexist prick.”

    It’s a stupid, condescending ad, but I could easily see it being aimed at a man, as well as at a woman. The fact that in this case it was aimed at a woman does not necessarily make it sexist.

    • BooRadley says:

      ew didn’t say the ad demonstrated Dave was a sexist prick.

      Do you think Tom Delay gave Reichert $20,000 because he’s a feminist?

      Send Darcy some damn cash.

      • UncommonSense says:


        I don’t know why Tom DeLay gave $20,000 to Dave Reichert. It might be because Reichert is a sexist prick. It might just be because Reichert is a lowlife GOP hack politician.

        My point was that Marcy indidcated it would be a good idea to donate to Darcy Burner because, among other reasons, Dave Reichert is a sexist prick. In the phrase “sexist prick” she embedded a hyperlink to a video that did nothing to demonstrate any such thing. I don’t think it is unreasonable to have expected the link in the words “sexist prick” to take me to something that bolsters the claim. It didn’t. Thus, my comment.

    • bmaz says:

      It is not that Reichart is a sexist prick because the ad says he is; Reichert is a sexist prick because his actions, attitude and demeanor over a very long time show that he is. That is common sense.

      • emptywheel says:

        It might have been more appropriate had I linked to the debate where Reichert not only argued for a “moral exception” to prevent women from getting the medical care a woman and her doctor believe she should have, but also interrupted Darcy when she was responding to teh same question.

  4. Lindy says:

    Marcy, I tried to come here via live bookmark. I got an error message that the server was redirecting the link in such a way that it would never complete. This was true for the most recent three posts.

      Why doesn’t EW get the same recognition that Iococca does?
      Where’s the outrage?
      ‘ “Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We’ve got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, “Stay the course.”

      “Stay the course? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America, not the Titanic. I’ll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!
      and this!
      “Why are we in this mess? How did we end up with this crowd in Washington? Well, we voted for them — or at least some of us did. But I’ll tell you what we didn’t do. We didn’t agree to suspend the Constitution. We didn’t agree to stop asking questions or demanding answers. Some of us are sick and tired of people who call free speech treason. Where I come from that’s a dictatorship, not a democracy.

    Mmmmmm… I’m not of your view on Darcy’s opponent; he’s not an bad guy. (Yeah, I know people who like him a lot.)

    OTOH, Darcy’s got a brilliant track record.
    And seems very ‘outcomes oriented’.
    A Softie running as a Dem, and used to focusing on product development and deliverables, has to be the GOP’s worst nightmare.
    Citizens everywhere should be grateful anyone with her brains and talent is willing to run for office.

    Even GOP Gov candidate Dino Rossi is trying to ‘distance’ himself from that “Republican” label. How things have changed in eight four short endless years.

    then I’ve got to empty out a fridge again because Sears can’t deliver on what it says it can deliver on.

    Y’know, Marcy, you might drop a little love note to Sears, reminding them that you have a very wide readership, and that each and every one of those readers is getting to hear about Sears’ failure to meet its promises.

    Might wake ’em up?
