Take Me Off Your "Bold Progressives" List!
If Elizabeth Warren is a “bold progressive” given that she’s announced several times her support for crippling sanctions and this new war on Iran that her colleagues are ginning up, then maybe we ought to start a new party of “timid regressives” to oppose the new rationales and lies. Whether it’s Bush’s and Madeleine Albright’s old notion of “fighting to bring democracy to the world” (and killing ½ million children in the process is “worth it”) or Obama’s and NATO’s new rationale of bombing Libya as a “humanitarian gesture,” it is all simply misleading, truly Orwellian propaganda. Both parties and their corrupt politicians are up to their eyeballs in these illegal wars of aggression and war crimes but like addicts, they can’t stop so they just keep finding new sales slogans.
Count me out! Warren can wage her WWIII without my little bit of money as window-dressing for the big money she’s pulling in from the Democratic PACs, war-addicted Military Industrial Complex and AIPAC groups.

Subject: UPDATE: Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth Warren is leading by just 5 points in the latest Massachusetts Senate poll. Other polls show a dead heat, and Wall Street would love to defeat her.
This Saturday is a major fundraising deadline that political insiders will use to assess the strength of her campaign -- and other progressives like Eric Griego (NM-1) and Lori Saldaña (CA-52).
Can you help Warren and other progressives show they have momentum by donating $3 to their campaigns before tomorrow’s deadline? Click here.
Elizabeth Warren continues to do progressives proud. This month, she barnstormed Massachusetts, putting the spotlight on abusive Wall Street practices such as housing foreclosures, excessive bank overdraft fees, and predatory lending by banks against veterans.
Lori Saldaña stood up to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in the California legislature and is fighting now for major government investment in jobs and corporate accountability.
Eric Griego, a top progressive senator in New Mexico, passed a green jobs bill and public funding of local elections into law. He's calling for Wall Street bankers to go to jail -- and penned a U.S. News & World Report column this week against Paul Ryan's plan to end Medicare.
Can you donate $3 to Warren, Griego, and Saldaña today -- before tomorrow's deadline? Click here.
Their victories will send a powerful message to Democrats: If you fight boldly, you can win.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
