Something To Brighten Your Day

Ode to Erica Payne, Robert Gibbs and Paul Krugman:

When you’re feeling sad & blue

And have no clue what to do

Sit down and have a cup of tea

And a hug or two or maybe three.

Feel those troubles melt away

And start you on a better day.

- Bill Kristol, would-be Conservative Poet Laureate

Heh. Do read Bill Kristol's take on the current state of the left - Collapse. He sees the left as having collapsed on every meaningful level, including public support. He notes their intellectual bankruptcy, the loss of their "Lenist discipline," the collapse of their "democratic legitimacy," and the disappearance of the left's "good humor."

All of this has Mr. Kristol in a state of giddiness about on par with that experienced by Ebenezer Scrooge when he awoke from his night of ghostly visitations still alive and with a new outlook on life. It is a fun read.

> the Agenda Project, a new, progressive group with roots in New York’s fundraising scene and a goal of strengthening the progressive movement, has launched the “F*ck Tea” project, which is aimed, the group’s founder Erica Payne wrote in an e-mail this morning, “to dismiss the Tea Party and promote the progressive cause.”

“We will be launching new products in the next several months to help people all over the country F*ck Tea,” Payne told Politico.

Leaving itself wide open to:

..F*ck UP?..
No, F*ck AP!

I find this whole story fascinating. At least the anti-capitalists at the Agenda Project are getting a self-taught lesson in capitalism. Who knows, they may end up drinking the tea before its all over.
