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.

Why Wisconsin Matters

A message from Democracy for America:  Our campaign to recall right-wing Gov. Scott Walker and his anti-union, anti-middle class cronies in the State Senate has caught the attention of Republicans across the country.

Republicans see Walker as a leader. They see his War on Working Families -- smashing unions, defunding Planned Parenthood, and passing harsh voter ID laws to keep students, seniors and the poor from voting -- as a blueprint to follow in states across the country. They see it as a plan to crush Democrats and turn blue states red -- and Walker basically admitted as much in a video put online last week.

We need to send a message to Scott Walker and his Republican fan boys across the country -- attack the middle class and you will lose.

All the polls are split dead-even and there are virtually no undecided voters left -- that's why we're on the ground knocking on doors in Wisconsin right now. This race will come down to Getting Out The Vote. Whoever best turns out their base on Election Day wins. It's that simple.

Can you chip in $10 to the DFA Wisconsin recall campaign and help turn out Democrats to vote in the June 5 recall?

Make no mistake about it -- this isn't going to be an easy fight.

Walker and his right-wing backers like Karl Rove and the Koch brothers are outspending Democrats five-to-one in Wisconsin. They're drowning us in vicious attack ads.

That's why we're knocking on doors. There is nothing more effective than talking to voters face-to-face and we're on track to hit 127,353 doors across the state as part of our campaign.

We're going to win this campaign and we're going to do it with people-power.

Please contribute $10 to the DFA Wisconsin recall campaign right now.

Thank you for all that you do.
