TATPodcast Episode 11 - It's On!

This will be the last episode you'll hear from me as a "single" man. I'm headed off to Chicago to marry the love of my life. I honestly can't wait and wish it were tomorrow (June 23rd to be exact). There has been so much that has happened since we got engaged about a year and half ago...that it's finally happening is somewhat of a relief. I'll spare you all the gush and sentimental stuff, however I will say I couldn't be more blessed. I've met my better half, my partner in crime, and my best friend...I'm lucky enough to be marrying her.

And at the end of all this, you may be able to get a better glimpse of me, who and what I really am. Hopefully Paddy K and I's humble podcast has offered a bit of an introduction, however I'll be able to share more post-marriage. It's only just begun.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good Job Obama

Didn't even know he could do this, but good for him (and his administration), "Obama Policy Will Grant Immunity to Young Immigrants"

Kevin Drum:

Good for him. Sure, this is election-year positioning, but sometimes good policy is good politics. And not only will this be good for Obama's electoral chances directly, but it presents Republicans with an excruciating dilemma: either lay low and piss off their base or else follow their usual anti-Obama playbook and unleash a blizzard of criticism that will torpedo their efforts to attract Latino voters for years to come. The smart move would be the former, and I imagine folks like Karl Rove will be pleading with leading conservatives to take a low-key approach to this. But my money is on the latter. The tea party folks will not be assuaged with a few ritual condemnations. They'll want blood. And they'll probably get it.

If the GOP goes the tea party route on immigration, they'll lose.

On Wisconsin

Fight on. Steve M has the most intriguing take away from the results. Also too, Scott Walker is still a colossal prick.

It shouldn't amaze anyone how easily people can be convinced to vote against their best interests. It happens often. Doesn't mean you stop fighting, doesn't mean you give up or change tactics. What worked here was the ability of organizers to make the recall happen. It happened. That alone is a victory. Yes, big money won, but the fight is long from over. We could end up like me, though, Wisconsin was the people beginning to realize the current status quo has gone on long enough.

Better late than never.
