Snark: to annoy or irritate

"Snark" has been in English language dictionaries since at least 1906, and Lewis Carroll used the word to describe a mythological animal in his poem, The Hunting of the Snark (1874). Most recently, the word has come to characterize snappish, sarcastic, or mean-spirited comments or actions directed at those who annoy or irritate us.

At first, this blog was just going be a place to gripe, but because it's more satisfying to take action than it is to merely complain, now most of the posts/reposts suggest ways to get involved in solving problems.

DFA Night School: Recruiting Good Candidates

Nothing is more frustrating than working your heart out for a bad candidate, just because they're a Democrat.

All across the country I've heard people complain that they don't have enough local candidates that share our progressive values. The problem isn't that good candidates don't exist - the problem is that you haven't recruited them...yet. 

Starting next week DFA is going to give you the skills to recruit and prepare local progressives to run for office - all you have to do is sign up!

Register for the Spring Semester of DFA Night School!

This semester of Night School will tackle the question of 'Getting a Campaign Off the Ground'. Every Wednesday for the next three weeks we'll provide an interactive online training for grassroots progressives that will help us identify and prepare the best progressive candidates for the 2012 elections.

Recruiting Candidates
Wednesday May 25th - 8:30pm Eastern

How to Launch Your Campaign
