Election 2016

If You Want to Stop Pipelines, Follow Her Lead

esquire.comFirst, I don’t know how many regular visitors we get here at the shebeen who are Democrats and who also are from Nebraska, but if there are any out there, you should know that the formidable Jane Fleming Kleeb, whose grassroots work in the tall grass helped stall the Keystone XL pipeline, the continent-spanning death funnel and conservative fetish object, is running for vice-chairman of the Nebraska State Democratic Committee.

This, of course, is exactly the kind of thing that progressive activists all over the country should be doing. Run for state committee seats. Run for the state legislature. Build a network. Do like the evangelical Right has done for 30 years.
