The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Potomaniacly Ugly!

The Good! *Florida Democratic State Legislators* Take that Rick Scott. Two Democratic State Senators in the Sunshine State have introduced two bills that would re-institute the 14 days of early voting in Florida - that Governor Scott had reduced to only 8. Both bills could also increase the number of voting hours on each early-voting day. Unfortunately - Republicans control both chambers of the state legislature - but incoming Republican leaders have suggested that they would be amenable to changing voting laws in Florida. Let's hope that's the case - so that every Floridian that has the right to vote is able to in upcoming elections.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Kedogenously Ugly!

The Good! *Elizabeth Warren* It was revealed yesterday that Senator-Elect Warren will have a seat on the highly influentional Senate Banking Committee - which is probably the worst nightmare of Wall Street fat cats. In fact - the finance industry is so afraid of Warren that it spent a whopping $6 million dollars trying to defeat her in the election. With a seat on the Banking Committee - Warren will be able to help protect the landmark Dodd-Frank financial reform law from being watered down. If I were a CEO on Wall Street - I'd be pretty scared right now - because Senator-Elect Warren is ready and willing to protect the American people from the harmful actions of the big banks.

Is it Time to Ditch the GDP?

everyone is always GDP this and GDP that. But - is obsessing over our nation's gross domestic product really the best way to talk about the growth and state of the American economy? In 1968 - Kennedy said this of measures like GDP and GNP: "Our Gross National Product, now, is over $800 billion dollars a year...if we judge the United States of America by that - that Gross National Product counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage...

How dare someone speak up about gun violence in America!

Neil McCabe, Human Events Online, joins Thom Hartmann. Well - that's exactly what NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas did during Sunday's broadcast of Sunday Night Football. Costas was addressing the tragic murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs player Javon Belcher. Here's what Costas didn't say... He didn't say the government should take away people's guns. He didn't say we should repeal the 2nd Amendment. And he didn't call for limits on gun ownership. Still - the conservative media and blogosphere lit up with fiery outrage towards Costas and Fox So-Called News is still talking about it today. So - have we really come to a point in this country where uttering the word "gun" is akin to screaming out the F word for all to hear?

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
