In Brief - May 19th, 2006

Here is today's quick news digest:
  • Tim Eyman is attempting to sound more optimistic about his chances of turning in enough signatures to quality Referendum 65 for the ballot. The Permanent Defense Journal explains why we can't trust what Eyman says.
  • The other day I posted on the NRCC's vicious attack ad that party hacks put out comparing Democratic congressional candidate Francine Busby with teenage drunk drivers. We've always known that the Republicans don't just play dirty against Democrats - they also do it to themselves! Check out this ad from the campaign of California Republican Bill Conrad.
  • Don't forget about tomorrow's rally with Russ Feingold.
  • Senator Maria Cantwell wants you to be a citizen co-sponsor of her new Clean EDGE Act. The Act is a sensible plan to cut dependence on foreign oil, invest in renewable energy alternatives, and remove tax breaks for oil companies like ExxonMobil.
  • America's reputation abroad continues to deteoriate. Seems more and more of our fellow world citizens don't like us. If we want to change such perceptions, we must start by changing our leadership - and then ultimately adapting our lifestyles.
