9780143113225: Blue Grit: Making Impossible, Improbable, and Inspirational Political Change in America

Noted political commentator Laura Flanders investigates the state of American politics from the bottom up

With her trademark wit and indefatigable reporting, Laura Flanders, host of RadioNation and bestselling author of Bushwomen: Tales of a Cynical Species, reveals as only she can the state of progressive America today. All over the country, grassroots organizations are making a difference, and democrats of all stripes are doing what the national party has failed to do: engage new voters, advance progressive issues, and even run their own candidates for office—and win—in some of the most unlikely places. With a fiery polemic, assured narrative, and acute political commentary, Blue Grit is crucial reading for anyone interested in the future of the Democrats—and this country.

About the Author:

Laura Flanders hosts The Laura Flanders Show, heard nationally. She is the author of The New York Times bestseller Bushwomen: Tales of a Cynical Species, among other books. Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and author of the international bestseller No Logo.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Who are the members of today's Democratic party, and how does the party serve them? What are the differences in funding between Democratic- and Republican-led efforts? How do the parties react to movements within their base-and how does this affect the outcome of elections? Disgruntled Democrat Flanders-author, journalist and Air America radio host-explores the answers to these and other questions on a cross-country tour of the Democratic party and its (nominal) members. Highlighting progressive victories taking place outside the party establishment, Flanders presents the lessons Democrats in power could learn from their constituents "if they were inclined to learn." In-depth analysis of movements from Utah's liberals to South Dakota's recent, successful anti-abortion campaign provides insight not only into campaign leaders, but into the role of funding, media and old fashioned grassroots-style activism. Flanders (Bushwomen) brings to this work enough data, recent history and progressive ideas-as well as wit, style and acerbic charm-to make this required reading for anyone looking to make sure "the Democratic party is finally serious" about a victory for progressives in 2008.
