No one would be foolish enough to argue that the 2012 elections will be a cakewalk for either side. It will be tough, it will be dirty, it will be expensive, and it will be close. So, what is the GOP doing to tilt this relatively level playing field to its advantage?
When I hear that AT&T and Verizon are key players with other multinationals and Republican legislators in a so-far obscure group that advances corporate interests and undermines ours, my thoughts turn...shall we say, vehement.

New York is infamous as a tough lift for any governor who hopes just to keep things under control, let alone actually change things. Andrew Cuomo just may be the most successful governor in America.
While people of color and the traditionally marginalized make enormous strides with access to places never even imaginable before, the working class and poor are still under attack in extraordinary and systematic ways.
Voters across the country have buyers' remorse about the Republicans they elected to office. The big stands House Republicans have taken so far--defun...
