Sorry…no soup…no pooties…not in this diary…not today… not with so much on the line this week. I’m going to attempt to be serious here and I hope you’ll agree with me on the bottom line: if we truly want the Congressional Progressive Caucus to stand up for [...]
So here I was minding my own business…getting some stuff done for my trip to DC next week when I got an email from someone I know in Rep. Jim McGovern’s (MA-03) office: “Can we talk? We’ve got a hot one for you”. So I picked up my phone curious…and then spent 10 minutes trying [...]
