    • How do liberals and progressives

  • One-Party Rule? (Don't Buy It.)

    By Thom Hartmann

    "Sending Jeff Merkley to the U.S. Senate could give one party a blank check … again," says an announcer in an ad for Sen. Gordon Smith of Oregon, a Republican in a close race with Merkley, a Democrat.

    In North Carolina Sen. Elizabeth Dole is at risk of losing to Democrat Kay Hagan, and the announcer lays out, "Who's the Senate race really about? Hagan or Dole? Neither one. It's about liberals in Washington. They want complete control of the government … The left wants 60 votes in the Senate."

    In Louisiana, another ad says "Landrieu votes with Barack Obama 81% of the time. Landrieu endorsed Obama. … Don't give Washington liberals complete control; don't give them a blank check."

  • Transcript: American Story rant, 28 October 2008

    How do liberals and progressives control America? Is 'control' the right word? What is America based on? What does it mean that we're going to have a change in government? You know, everybody, we talk about change. What does this change mean? What are the consequences of it? How does this all work? What are all the moving pieces? What is it to be an American? What does it mean to be an American?

    How is America different than every other nation?
