Shame on Us

Shame on us. Shame on us, Progressives. At no time in history, at least not that I know of, has there been a more energized progressive movement. Yet, progressive institutions like the Rockridge Institute, are struggling to the point of closing their doors. We all have to do better.

I understand that we are in hard economic times. I also understand that Senator Barack Obama, has sucked up a lot of the progressive money for his campaign. Still, we have to support our think tanks. The Republicans have what seems like a thousand think tanks and all of them are flush with money. We have to have progressive institutions that continue to educate our candidates, study the issues, and come up with progressive solutions.

I call on the big blogs to do more. They have the resources. Crooks and Liars, Daily Kos, FireDogLake and Huffington Post… We all need you to help us to support these very important institutions.
