Carnival of Progressive Politics—November 2010 Edition

November 21, 2010

2010 Election: Senate Results

2010 Elections: House Results

If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.”
—Orson Welles

The story never ends, and it’s the story of our lives and our children’s lives, and so on and so on.  In hopes that it will inspire you to think about the never-ending story of how politics shapes our world, here is the November edition of the Carnival of Progressive Politics.

Civil Liberty

Steven and Debra at The End Times Hoax present If God Says Civil Government is Oppressive and Opt-out Ode to the Beltway TSA.

Madeleine Begun Kane at Mad Kane’s Political Madness offers Pat-Down Put-Down.


Ella Moss at Zodiac Times comments On Taxes, Unions, Jobs, and Dangerous Politics.

Health Care

Eric Gargiulo at Health Bill News asks Is Obama Health Care reform Entirely Good? and posits that the Multi-state lawsuit to stop Health Care Reform is a Gamble.

Salty at The Salty Blogger presents It’s the Mandate, Stupid!


Madeleine Begun Kane at Mad Kane’s Political Madness presents Alpha-Political Verse: Election 2010.

New Polity offers A Tribute to Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Systems Thinker thinks about National  Popular Vote.

Ben Harack at Vision of Earth ponders How can you deliberately change your society?

Ophelia Keith presents Breaking News! about the rich, and asks Are We, Too, Not the Sons and Daughters of Revolution?


David W. Trevino at  The Arrow and the Rose gives us From South Carolina, Obama as “President Negro”.

That’s all for this edition. Future carnivals are on  hold—as is this blog—while this writer pursues a completely different project.

As always, I do not necessarily agree with all writing on a contributor’s blog. If a post appears here, it is because I consider it worth reading.


I wish us all happy endings upon happy endings.

  1. Blog Carnivals used to be fun.
    But now it appears that I’m done.
    Cuz the site we’re all using
    To build them’s refusing
    My stuff — no more Mad Kane post fun.

    • sgaissert Says:

      I canceled my carnivals too,
      And that fact often makes me feel blue.
      Perhaps some day once more
      I’ll post carnies galore,
      But for now I’m as bereft as you.
