Political Strategy Links Illuminate, Amuse
Are conservatives or progressives a majority in America? You won't find a stronger case for the progressive majority, on the internet at least , than Media Matters' footnote and link rich "The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America is a Myth."
Ezra Klein, usually skeptical about advice books for Dems, has a plug for Drew Westen's forthcoming book, The Political Brain, an excerpt of which is posted at The American Prospect. Klein likes the way Westen's book focuses on "how voters experience politics, and how Democrats all too often speak on another plane entirely."
The "amuse" part of this article's headline comes from Michael Falcone's "A Gamer's Guide to Redstricting" at The New York Times. Falcone links to a way cool new interactive game which "simulates many of the challenges involved in the redistricting process, from drawing district maps to winning the support of state and party leadership." You can play "The Redistricting Game" right here.
