This Is A Platform?

In her first TV ad,
Tea Party darling Christine O'Donnell betters Nixon's "I'm not a crook"
and displays her multiple legislative gifts by assuring us right off
the bat, "I'm not a witch." She concedes, "None of us are (sic) perfect"
and slams vague "backroom deals" before smilingly confiding, "I'm you."
Umm, not. Nope. Our political discourse has become Saturday
Night Live material. Good grief. 

"I'll go to Washington and do what you'd do." - O'Donnell


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
