I fully support the efforts currently underway to go after companies who support Rush Limbaugh with their advertising dollars. But after reading BooMan this morning, it strikes me that - in our efforts to fight back against these assaults - we could step it up a notch and go on the offensive. For example, it is a disgrace that only 17 of 100 U.S. Senators are women. BooMan has provided a wonderful list of women running in 2012 that we could support.
As I read that list, I realized that - other than President Obama - come November I will have the pleasure of voting for 2 women - Betty McCollum and Amy Klobuchar. As I continue to support them, I'll do what I can to help elect more progressive women to the House and Senate.
Today, my message to the likes of Limbaugh will be a donation to the campaigns of Mazie Hirono for Senate and Wenona Benally Baldenegro for Congress.
Anyone want to join me?
