Progressives form 'One Nation' coalition
to compete with Tea Party

Sorry for the monthlong delay in blogging. I have no excuses -- other than I've been lazy.

I'll pick it up again starting ... now!

From Christopher Weber of Politics Daily on July 12:
Progressives have launched the left's version of the Tea Party movement.

Dubbed "One Nation," it's a grassroots coalition of 170 liberal and civil rights groups that organizers hope will help the progressive cause regain its voice two years after the election of Barack Obama and "counter the Tea Party narrative," The Washington Post reported.

"Having been confronted with the specter of the Tea Party . . . we felt it urgent to organize the majority of this country, which voted in 2008 and has gone back to the couch," said Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, one of the movement's members. "We've been split off in different directions."
