Why we need to keep Brad Miller in Congress

Hat tip to Mark Binker:

“It’s hard to believe that just a decade ago Congress was debating what to do about the surplus. I opposed the irresponsible tax cuts of the last decade that created the deficit. Congress cut the taxes on the richest Americans by more than a third, and now working and middle-class families will suffer as a result.”

He's right, of course, but the truth doesn't get much mileage in today's political environment. Which is why I'm putting this on the front page, and why I'm going to be asking Progressives to put their money where their mouth is in the upcoming election. Brad has fought for us, and now it's our turn to fight for him.


In case it somehow disappears,

here's a Tweet from one of the NC Senate Republicans' political gurus:

NathanBabcock 10:16pm via Twitter for BlackBerry® Right on cue, praise for Miller from the left. But keep him in NC-13 or 4?

And my response:

stevencharrison 11:15pm via HootSuite @nathanbabcock Bragging about gerrymandering? Really? #ncga Senate Republicans just lost what little credibility they had left #ncpol #ncgov

No shit, these guys are so full of ego steroids they don't even know when their mouth has run ahead of their brain.
