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.

Take Down the Tea Party 10

Take action!
A message from CREDO Action:  No doubt you've watched in horror over the last year, as the most extreme congress in history made one nauseating vote after another.

Now it's payback time.
Many of the Tea Party-affiliated House Republicans were elected in 2010 with the help of millions of dollars in spending by political groups associated with Karl Rove and the Koch brothers.
So the most odious members of the congress have behaved as if they were above accountability.
But they aren't. And we're going to take them down.
Today CREDO is launching a new campaign: To defeat ten of the most extreme Tea Party-affiliated members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. We aim to win — and we need your help to do it.
This is the biggest campaign CREDO has ever undertaken, and it couldn't come at a more important time.
The CREDO SuperPAC will run a grassroots campaign in ten districts. We will mobilize our members to inform voters of the Tea Party incumbent's perfidy, to peacefully confront and question them at public gatherings, and to turn out thousands of volunteers for door-to-door canvassing and member-to-member phone calls.
The emphasis will be on making a significant, cost-effective impact, using brutally honest messages, cutting edge strategies, and some tactics that have never been tried before.
Our goal is to restore at least a measure of sanity to our national politics, and begin to change Washington.
Your involvement will be crucial in this campaign — and every one of CREDO Action's nearly 2.5 million activists has a role to play to help defeat these extremist legislators.
Now, we need to get this campaign moving.
Donate $5 to help fund a hard-nosed campaign to hold ten of the most extreme Tea Party-affiliated representatives accountable:
Thanks for your activism. Together, we're about to do something really big.
