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.

Romney Will Hate This Ad

A message from Democracy for America: 
The Republican circus is in New Hampshire this week for the next big primary -- and two more debates.

With all eyes on New Hampshire, now's the time to show people just what these guys and their Tea Party cronies in Congress stand for -- gutting Social Security, destroying the environment, and ending Medicare as we know it.

That's why we're bringing back our ad hitting right-wing Rep. Charlie Bass (R-NH). He voted for Paul Ryan's plan to kill Medicare and he's Mitt Romney's right-hand man in New Hampshire.

Check out the ad and contribute $12 to keep it on the air through the Republican debates.

The ad was a hit when we ran it last time. Rachel Maddow even did a piece on it, calling the Republican freakout "the full belly flop option."

Someone needs to hold Republicans accountable for the stuff they're saying -- and we know it's not going to be the moderators at this weekend's debates. So, we're teaming up with our friends at the PCCC to keep this ad on the air so people know exactly where these guys stand on the issues.

Check out Rachel Maddow's piece on our ad and contribute now to keep it on the air.

Thank you for everything you do.
