In an innovative rebranding move oddly reminiscent of Blackwater becoming Xe, the GOP, formerly known as the party of 'no,' is launching the National Council for a New America. Promising "a wide open policy debate," the bold new outreach effort will feature bold new faces like John McCain, Jeb Bush and George Bush.

"We do this not just to offer an alternative point of view or to
be disagreeable," the announcement letter reads. "Instead, we want to ask the American people what their
hopes and dreams are."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
