A C-Note for Progressive Politics

News & Politics

It hasn't been an easy month for progressive patriots. A lot of Democrats swore off donating to the national party in the wake of the Alito confirmation debacle. Others began to feel dodgy about supporting NARAL for using the softheaded "hardball" tactic known as "kissing Linc Chaffee's ass."

So, assuming you had $100 to invest in progressive politics, how would you spend it? RawStory reporter Nancy Goldstein asked about a dozen liberal bloggers. Here's what they said. Some supported small-town grassroots groups and one set aside $100 for "whatever keeps Howard Dean's mouth going". Planned Parenthood and Texas Democratic Congressional hopeful Ciro Rodriguez came up a lot. Russ Feingold is going to get some of the blogosphere's hypothetical megabucks, too.
