Two political bloggers offer their views on the current political landscape in America and provide an insightful look into the new progressive movement, aided by advances in technology, that is changing the face of politics.
Crashing the Gate is a shot across the bow at the political establishment in Washington, DC and a call to re-democratize politics in America.This book lays bare, with passion and precision, how ineffective, incompetent, and antiquated the Democratic Party establishment has become, and how it has failed to adapt and respond to new realities and challenges. The authors save their sharpest knives to go for the jugular in their critique of Republican ideologues who are now running-and ruining-our country.Written by two of the most popular political bloggers in America, the book hails the new movement-of the netroots, the grassroots, the unorthodox labor unions, the maverick big donors-that is the antidote to old-school politics as usual. Fueled by advances in technology and a hunger for a more authentic and populist democracy, this broad-based movement is changing the way political campaigns are waged and managed.A must-read book for anyone with an interest in the future of American democracy.
From The Book Jacket
In a given week, Markos Moulitsas Zniga's progressive blog, Daily Kos, receives more than 3 million visits, making it one of the most widely read political blogs in the world, and earning its proprietor regular calls for advice from Democratic Party leaders. Not bad for somebody who just four years ago was a Silicon Valley dropout with no real political experience. Now Moulitsas, along with fellow blogger Jerome Armstrong of MyDD.com (the DD stands for "Direct Democracy"), has put down some thoughts in a more traditional medium - a book.In "Crashing the Gate," the two are not shy about what they hope to accomplish: nothing but an all-out "people-powered" takeover of the Democratic Party - which, they are firmly convinced, is the only way to take America back from the conservatives currently ruining it. "To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson," they write, "the tree of a political party must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of reformers and insiders." So begins a chapter titled "Civil War." ..."Crashing the Gate" is brash and infuriating, as it should be. The progressive blogosphere is starting to feel its own strength - in the continued growth of Web traffic, in its powerful fund-raising capacity, and in the rise of its man, Howard Dean, as Democratic National Committee chairman. As Eli Pariser of Moveon.org's political action wing wrote in December 2004 (after helping to raise a few hundred million dollars online): "Now it's our party: we bought it, we own it, and we're going to take it back." "Crashing the Gate" is a powerful salvo in that battle. And as such, it commands attention. -Lee Drutman, Los Angeles Times
