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.

Alan Grayson Gets It

A message from Democracy for America:

Alan Grayson gets it.

When he was in Congress, he was a strong voice for progressive reform. When other representatives caved to Republican tactics, Grayson stood with us.

We need Alan Grayson back in Congress in 2012. Now, more than ever, we need a progressive hero like Alan Grayson who will bring our message and our cause back to DC.

Need more proof? During his recent appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, Alan Grayson laid into critics and explained some of the key motivations driving the Occupy Wall Street movement. He's ready to stand up for the 99%. Are we ready to stand up for him?

Click here to watch and contribute $10 to send Alan Grayson back to Congress. 
Republicans will do everything they can to stop Grayson from winning his seat back, but we can beat them. Grayson has set a goal of raising $100,000 by midnight tonight -- one year away from Election Day in 2012 -- and DFA members are going to help him get there. 

Alan Grayson will keep telling truth to power and represent progressives in Congress, but only if we deliver the resources to win.

Thank you for everything you do.

--Charles Chamberlain, Political Director
