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.

Recall the Right

The extreme right-wing group Club For Growth is already on the air in Wisconsin with attack ads against at least one Democratic challenger to one of the incumbent Republican senators in the recall elections. Daily Kos blogger Vega, who lives just over the border in Minnesota but in the same media market as Wisconsin's 10th Senate District, wrote of this early spending:
"After 30 years of tax policy favoring them, the richest Americans have almost all the money in the country, and they are willing to wield it like a sledgehammer to kill a fly. That is how important Wisconsin is to the right wing. They don't want any of their gains to be rolled back and they are willing to spend whatever it takes to keep them. They don't want even a temporary setback in their march to domination."
Vega's absolutely right. And this is just the beginning. 

PFAW has a plan to win the persuadable, likely Wisconsin voters we need for the big victories in August. This past Tuesday night, our political director Randy Borntrager, along with the SEIU's Michelle Ringuette and PFAW president Michael Keegan, held a strategy telebriefing for hundreds of PFAW members. We'll have plenty more ways for activists to get involved on the horizon. 

For now, please take a moment to find out more about PFAW's Wisconsin Recall the Right campaign at
