In MemoriamThe year-ago date was actually yesterday, but yesterday was a family day for me as I spent time with my wife. I don't think Paul would have minded.
The loss of Paul Wellstone, Great American Citizen, and his wife and daughter was such a senseless, tragic loss. More so because the national media (including this asshole in particular) chose to lie about his memorial service as an excuse to inject wingnut politics where there was no reason to.
This was, for many people, the first time we realised the depth these lying liars would sink to -- smearing a man who was killed tragically and painting his supporters as un-American. Then we saw this and got even sicker. From Paul Wellstone's memorial rose The Angry Liberal, a phoenix that I believe is going to a) elect Howard Dean president, b) show the door to the Republican spend-and-debt Congress, and c) Send Shrub and his wingnut cohorts back to Texas with a drubbing at the polls that will make even his run-out-of-town-on-a-rail father's margin of defeat look good. You heard it hear first.
