Marc Danziger is raising money to fight retreatist politicians: I’m a liberal Democrat (pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, pro-progressive taxation, pro-equal rights, pro-environmental regulation, pro-public schools) who supported and supports the war in Iraq.

(Photoshop: Kathy Y.) They can’t be serious, can they? Oh, yes they are. The Hill newspaper reports. You deride: Speaker-in-waiting Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) threw her support behind Rep.
