These are dangerous days.

We need people of courage.

And, in the wake of teabagger protests, racial slurs, bricks through windows, cut gas lines, and death threats, these folks have shown they have courage.

They were going to burn him in effigy last fall. And now they've cut a gas line at the house they thought was his.

Tom Perriello wasn't intimidated in Sierra Leone or Afghanistan. And he's not intimidated now.

Conviction politics at its finest.

Craig Pridemore is running hard to fill a vacant seat in Washington State. A fearless progressive, he's not going to be pushed around by anyone.

John Lewis


One of the most influential figures in the Civil Rights Movement, John Lewis is truly legendary.

I don't think that the teabaggers at the Capitol had any idea who they were calling a n**** - or how much it showed their true colors.

The teabaggers also used a rather homophobic slur against Barney Frank. Not wise against a man who is not only quite powerful, but who happily verbally eviscerates them at town hall meetings. They're really not up to his caliber.
