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.

Help Defeat the Radical Right

A message from PFAW:
The 2012 election cycle is well underway, with the effort to recall right-wing Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker officially kicking off TODAY and the Republican presidential candidates duking it out for the title of Biggest Extremist.

The GOP presidential candidates spent the last debate advocating for “good” torture like waterboarding. Imagine what radical policies the Tea Party candidates for Senate and House will pursue!
The GOOD News: the Voters Alliance has already raised nearly HALF the $25,000 in early money we need for key, make-or-break 2012 political campaigns. But the BAD NEWS is we haven’t heard from YOU yet. Won’t you please help us get the rest of the way there by donating now?
Today we need core supporters more than ever. Here’s why:
  • Early money is the key to building support for our progressive candidates.
  • The PFAW Voters Alliance is supporting progressive champions like Tammy Baldwin (WI),Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH) in key battleground Senate races. Progressive champions like these are our last, best hope to overcome unprecedented Republican obstruction in the Senate, rein in Wall Street and corporate greed, and level the playing field for the middle class.
  • The right-wing attack machine is ALREADY on the air against our progressive candidates -- Karl Rove’s corporate-funded front group Crossroads GPS is running an ad in Massachusetts right now smearing Elizabeth Warren.
We must expose the smear tactics and lies of the Radical Right and support our progressive candidates! Please make your online gift to the PFAW Voters Alliance right now.

Randy Borntrager, PAC Director
P.S. Because of election laws, your contribution to the PAC allows us to do critical, specific work that PFAW cannot do with other types of donations. That’s why it’s so important that you take this opportunity to make a special PAC contribution today to help us elect progressive champions and keep the Right out of office.
