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.

Scott Walker vs. Planned Parenthood

A message from Democracy for America:
This is it, folks. DFA's campaign to recall six anti-union, anti-middle class Wisconsin Republican Senators is almost ready to go and it's the biggest campaign we've ever run.

We're going to be on the air with new hard-hitting television, radio and web ads against these six Republicans for their votes to destroy unions and middle-class families.

We're going to be on the ground with a massive canvassing operation that will knock on 137,523 doors in 40 days. DFA Deputy Field Director Nick Passanante is on the ground right now hiring staff for our biggest-ever ground campaign.

And we're going to be on the phones. That's right, we're bringing back our hugely successful Call Out The Vote program with our friends at the PCCC -- plugging in thousands of volunteers from across the country to make calls to voters in Wisconsin.

We're putting together a grassroots campaign because people-power is the only thing that can beat big corporate money -- it's the only thing that ever has. But we can't do it without you.
Please contribute $10 right now to fuel our biggest campaign ever and fight back in the war on working families.
These six Republican senators reminded us last week exactly what's at stake when they voted lockstep with right-wing Gov. Scott Walker to defund Planned Parenthood -- another attack in the Republican war on middle class families.

Wisconsin isn't the only state where right-wing Republicans have launched all-out war on middle class families and we're working right now to organize volunteers in New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio and all across the country. But Wisconsin is the first state where we have a chance to go to the polls and recall Republicans.

The Wisconsin recall is our biggest campaign ever -- and it's only the beginning. Join us now and send a clear message to Republicans across the country -- attack the middle class and you lose.
Contribute $10 now to send a message to Republicans everywhere.

On the air, on the ground and on the phone -- that's real people power. Please contribute today and we'll win this fight together.

Thank you for everything you do.

-Jim Dean, Chair
Democracy for America
