Blue America Welcomes Sen. Regina Thomas

Today's Blue America candidate is Georgia state Senator Regina Thomas. She's taking on one of the very worst and most reactionary of all the congressional Blue Dogs, John Barrow, in a district that encompasses much of Savannah and Augusta. Barrow votes more frequently for the Bush agenda and with the GOP than any other Democrats, although he's sometimes tied with Nick Lampson and Jim Marshall. Regina will be blogging live at Firedoglake today at 2pm (Georgia Peach Time). Blue America worked with singer-songwriter Jason Joseph to put together a little music clip for Regina. If you'd like to help us get this spread around, please consider donating to Regina's campaign at our Blue America ActBlue page today.



Late Night Music Club with Jason Joseph

Last night, instead of sitting home and making a music clip for the Music Club, I ventured out into the world. I went to check out a scene at the best Irish bar in L.A., Molly Malone's on Fairfax. Every Monday chanteuse Adjoa Skinner

hosts an evening of cool and interesting new talent. She reminded me of a how I image Arianna Huffington must have been when she was in his 20s-- if Arianna was a brilliant singer and songwriter as well as... well, you know. Anyway, her first guest was Wainwright and he totally blew me away with his powerful and poignant alt/pop songs. Wainwright brought up another guy, Jason Joseph to play piano and sing with him and then Jason did his own set. I'll tell you how good Jason Joseph is-- I asked him to work on a song for the Blue America candidates. That good! Here's one he sang, "One Man," last night and dedicated to Barack Obama:
