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.

Sign Up to View Live Convention Coverage from Charlotte

A message from Democracy for America: Last week, Republicans stormed into Tampa hoping to change the conversation this election season. Did they ever - even Fox News was concerned with the distortion of facts and the lies being told by the Romney/Ryan ticket. This week, Democrats take to Charlotte to counter the lies.
This year, Democracy for America and Netroots Nation are partnering to provide a live studio where progressive leaders, pundits, and your favorite bloggers and reporters will join us for progressive conversations. DFA is the place for progressives. You'll hear from folks like Rep. Keith Ellison, Rep. Donna Edwards, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Sen. Jeff Merkley, Van Jones, Lizz Winstead, The Nation's Ari Berman, Gov. Howard Dean and many more.
Sign up today to gain access to this unique online program run by DFA staff for progressives like you.
Not everyone can make it to Charlotte - that's why we are live-streaming these conversations online. All the hard hitting interviews and progressive talk will be live-streaming Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00-4:00PM EST, September 4th-6th. That way you can sit back, relax, and join in the convention fun.
This is a breakthrough program run by us - for our members. You won't want to miss it.
Will you join us and watch the live-streaming conversations happening next week?
We're excited to be breaking down all the news out of the Democratic National Convention. You can count on us to deliver the progressive voice and progressive conversation on issues that matter.
Join us.

I'll see you next week.
