Democratic do's and don'ts

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) wrote a great column over at In These Times, giving a rundown of surprisingly clear tips for the Democratic Party to take advantage of the current political climate. It's stunningly clear to the rest of us that "nothing should stop progressives from proudly and aggressively standing up in opposition to conservatives' assault on fundamental, mainstream American values and sensibilities," but it's more than refreshing to hear an elected official talk like this.

Also, be sure to check out The Case for a Democratic Marker in the features section of Start Making Sense. And then support independent media by buying a book while you're there.
