There is advocacy journalism and there is Citizen Koch.
So far in Election 2012, we've seen a foul-mouthed Rush Limbaugh, men-only Congressional panels on women's rights, transvaginal probe laws and efforts to restrict women's access to contraception. And yet there's still a dispute over whether there's a war on women?
Buddy Roemer and Gary Johnson are considered boutique candidates, dismissed by the Republican party. And yet when you consider the level of crazytalk that has pervaded the Republican nominating contest, it becomes apparent the only thing keeping them from recognition is money.
This audio report on the Buddy Roemer presidential campaign features interviews with Krista Johnson and Joshua Fischer. Johnson was one of just 17 Iow...
Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are crisscrossing Florida as the clock runs out before Tuesday's crucial primary. They may be the frontrunners headed into the primary, but they're at the bottom of the pack when it comes to civil liberties issues.

Unfortunately for the Obama administration, whether they ultimately face Romney or Roemer or perhaps the both of them, the Democrats have been caught holding a bag of Clinton-Bush "free trade" leftovers.
At this point, there are only a few holdouts left on the sidelines, as most of the bigwigs (and some decidedly "smallwigs") have made their intentions known.
Buddy Roemer has announced that he is launching an exploratory committee to consider a run for the presidency. He has also announced a campaign different from the campaign of every other candidate. A president, Roemer says, "must be free to lead": free of commitments to anything save the principles he commits to. So Roemer's campaign will take no PAC money.
