Eric Alterman Joins TYT : "Why We're Liberals: A Political Handbook for Post-Bush America"
Cenk interviews Eric Alterman, about his book, "Why We're Liberals: A Political Handbook for Post-Bush America"

http://youngturks.wmod.llnwd.net/a591/o1/3-13-08Alterma...

PS---You can always watch TYT Live from 3-5 pm ET, with a Rolling Post Game 5-7 pm daily Monday-Friday at www.theyoungturks.com The RPG often contains political talk but also many non-political topics to lighten things up (and yes, that audio may not necessarily be work-safe).

Also, if you can't watch live, the 3-5pm portion of the show (politics) streams the rest of the day, all day right after the Post Game Show ends leading up to the initial show at 3pm.

1. We need a LOT of these, because we have at least 30 to 40 years of catching up
to do. These bastards had a humdinger of a head start - slowly taking over every institution that determined policy and culture. GREAT article here that I found in Truthout - that should be required reading for EVERYONE who's interested in reversing this disgusting, and frankly rather UN-American trend:

Check this one out, guys!!!

2. That is EXACTLY what the GOP has become: UN-AMERICAN.
Hopefully, people are beginning to understand this concept (I can dream, can't I?)

4. You're welcome.
I think it's a MUST-read.

As a matter of fact, I may post it as a separate thread. EVERYBODY on our side needs to start thinking about this. Because we can't really take our country back until we thoroughly understand how it was stolen out from under us to begin with.

5. Kicking yours again, and cross-promoting mine.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

I didn't write this particular piece. But it's so good I wanted to make sure at least a few others here saw it before my thread about it sinks into oblivion. It's a blueprint for overturning all the gains the bad guys have made in the past 30 to 40 years.

Thank you, ihavenobias, for letting me use your thread to spread it. I don't mean to be a pig-dog, but this just seemed VITALLY important. More important than any single campaign, be it for president, senate, or congress, or statehouse. This is LONGTERM, and overriding all else. Because if we can address this, all else will follow accordingly.
