United Front Against Radicalized GOP

Women for Obama
"More generally, the Republican assault on the very concept of collective bargaining and its treatment of wages and benefits (not to mention regulations and corporate taxes) as nothing more than cost-boosting burdens on 'wealth creators' harnesses the GOP to a concept of economic development that if it were effective would have long made Mississippi the nation's economic dynamo."
- Ed Kilgore, Washington Monthly

"I think they should spend five or ten minutes on [campaign 2012]. Seeing if there’s a point in taking part in the carefully orchestrated electoral extravaganza. And my own judgment, for what it’s worth, is, yes, there’s a point to taking a part," said Noam Chomsky.

Professor Chomsky said he will probably vote for Jill Stein for president in an effort to push a genuine electoral alternative, but that if he lived in a swing state he would vote "against Romney-Ryan, which means voting for Obama."
