With Winners Like These, Who Needs Losers?

Republicans firing up for new electoral triumphs at a Conservative Political Action Conference starting today have assembled an impressive roster of speakers. They include Mike
Huckabee, Rush Limbaugh, Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher, former U.N. Ambassador John "There is no such thing as the United Nations" Bolton, RNC chair Michael "open to everything, baby"  Steele, and Rep. Michelle – "We're running out of rich people in this country," but God is still on our side as long as we don't harbor un-Americans – Bachmann.

Forum topics at the event will include: "Al Franken and ACORN:
How Liberals Are Destroying the American Election System"; "Bailing Out Big Business: Are We All Socialists Now?"; "Will Congress Take Your Guns?"; "Will Obama’s Tax
Policy Kill Entrepreneurship?" and "The True Cost of Global Warming
Hysteria."

Finally, now, we will be able to see the unfairness of press coverage charging that Republicans are out of touch and out of ideas.

We await their resurrection with a mix of shock and awe.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
