Net neutrality treats the Internet as a data pipeline, akin to a water pipeline. It doesn’t discriminate between the content that flows through it. That’s all net neutrality is. But there are Republican politicians who want to monetize the Internet … Continue reading
The Supreme Court. A reader at Andrew Sullivan’s blog makes the point concisely: A president Clinton will have […] a very gray Supreme Court (FOUR octogenarians in her first term). Think about what that means for all those Voting Rights Act cases … Continue reading
Reality is starting to assert itself. You won’t read this at the Drudge Report, but evidence is accumulating that Obamacare has been working over the past three years, and it’s poised to be a success moving into its “insurance exchange … Continue reading
These come from Michael Tomasky at the Daily Beast. Here’s the first: [E]lectoral demographer Ruy Teixeira reported recently that this bloc [white blue-collar voters] will constitute a sizeable 3 percent less of the electorate this year than it did in 2008—the minority … Continue reading
31-year-old Joseph P. Kennedy III, grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, served in the Peace Corps, has a Harvard law degree, and is running in Massachusetts for the congressional seat that is being vacated by the retiring Barney Frank. And he … Continue reading
If President Barack Obama cannot capture the white vote at quite the same numbers that he did in 2008 (43%), does that pretty much doom his chances in 2012 for a second term? A demographic trends analysis at National Journal suggests … Continue reading
At the New York Times this week, Nate Silver lays out some criteria for an educated guess: I estimate that Mr. Carter’s approval rating was 31 percent, and George H.W. Bush’s was 39 percent, at the time of their respective … Continue reading

The House of Representatives voted 234-194 yesterday to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” And how many Republicans voted for the repeal? Just 5. Five. Pathetic. One of them was Ron Paul.
I’m so proud to have supported and worked for this man’s election to the presidency. Barack Obama is proving to be an even better president than I had dared hope for when I voted for him in November of 2008. And on Sunday … Continue reading
Republicans think that the passage of health care reform will deliver them an overwhelming electoral sweep of both houses of Congress in November. Have they gone mad? Here’s Politico yesterday. You would think that they had actually achieved something historic by … Continue reading

The New York Times today on the surprisingly good jobs numbers: The sudden and unexpected improvement surprised even the most optimistic forecasters. Instead of yet another six-figure job loss, only 11,000 jobs disappeared last month and instead of another rise in … Continue reading
