Sen. Boxer & the Senate Honor Roll Call

Sen. Barbara Boxer (Calif.) and fifteen of her fellow Democrats deserve special commendation for having signed a letter this week calling upon President Sesame Street to fire Kenneth Y. Tomlinson, the increasingly controversial and unabashedly right-wing chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

According to the New York Times, the signatories in addition to Sen. Boxer are: Sens. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (Del.), Maria Cantwell (Wash.), Jon Corzine (N.J.), Richard J. Durbin (Ill.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Tom Harkin (Iowa), Edward M. Kennedy (Mass.), Frank R. Lautenberg (N.J.), Patrick J. Leahy (Vt.), Joseph I. Lieberman (Conn.), Barbara A. Mikulski (Md.), Bill Nelson (Fla.), Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), and Ron Wyden (Ore.).

I know. Only sixteen. It’s a start.

If your senator or senators aren’t on the list, why not just pick up the phone? Call the Capitol switchboard toll-free at (800) 839-5276.

Comments:
We can't ban unabashedly ideological or partisan people from posts, as a general rule. Wouldn't you want an appointment? I sure would.

It would be nice if the right-wing media was upfront about him being so right-wing, instead of covering for him and pretending he is fair and concerned about all bias.

Bah.
 
We had been blogging trying to find how our world sees dog training. It has been a lifeline for us. Your site provides some of the best examples of this sort and we will bookmark yours. Another one we found was and appears to be related to yours is dog training site/blog. It pretty much covers dog training related stuff.
