My wife Anne wrote this last year and it’s all basically still true (except that I’ve written 4,909 posts now.) I thought it was worth sharing it with you on the last day of our fundraiser as a reminder of why we do what we do. Thanks for any support you can give. I don’t like painting ceilings. I don’t […]Read more ›

We’re nearing the end of our first quarter fundraiser and, unfortunately, it hasn’t been a particularly robust one. This worries me. With taxes due soon and our bank account dwindling, there is a real possibility that I will need to restrict how many posts our regular contributors can publish because there simply won’t be enough money to pay them. And, […]Read more ›
Processing… I’m processing the protest. I’m processing the articles written about the protest. I’m processing comments people are leaving about the protest. I’m processing how prevalent racism still is, even in the progressive community. And I’m processing my photographs. As I go through the hundreds of images I took during the presidential candidate town hall protest at Netroots Nation on […]Read more ›
PHOTOS: The 2nd Annual Eclectafundraiser with special guest John Dingell, the newly-crowned #DeanOfTwitter
Last night’s 2nd Annual Eclectafundraiser is in the can and, in my opinion, it simply could not have gone better. We had well over 100 folks come by, the beer lasted until the very end, and we didn’t run out of Eclectagrog beer glasses to give away. Oh, yeah. This happened, too: Yes, history was made when, after being crowned […]Read more ›
We don’t get to brag about our team very often but today is one of those days. Campaigns and Elections magazine gives out annual awards – called The Reed Awards – in a variety of categories related to, as you might expect, campaigns and elections. This year’s winner in the category of “Best Website for Congressional Candidate” went to Power […]Read more ›
Photo by Anne C. Savage, special to Eclectablog We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished here at Eclectablog. What started as the random, eclectic musings of a wannabe writer has turned into something so much more. People tell me on a regular basis that Eclectablog is one of their “must visit” sites every day so that they can stay abreast of […]Read more ›
Anne’s photos of the nearly all-white crowd attending the opening of the Michigan Republican Party’s African American outreach office in Detroit have gotten picked up nationally. Yesterday they appeared in the top story on the Huffington Post by Amanda Terkel along with a link back to our coverage here at Eclectablog. Then, last night, during the Debunktion Junction segment on […]Read more ›
Wifeproud The American Journalism Review recently relaunched itself as a web-only publication, a major move for a major publication. The central article on the newly launched site is a piece by Jackie Spinner titled “‘Identity Crisis’ in Photojournalism”. It’s a terrific piece that discusses the new trend of major print media outlets shedding photographers and having their writers taking photos […]Read more ›
2012 was a year full of politics in Michigan. As a political writer, particularly one writing from the progressive side of things, I never had a single day where there wasn’t something happening in Michigan worth writing about. We weren’t far into 2012 before I realized that women were standing up and speaking out in larger numbers and with a louder, stronger voice than any other group of people in our state. So much so that I have taken to calling 2012 the Year of Michigan Women in Politics.Read more ›
We ALL approve this message
A new video out from the group We Approve This Message does an amazing job of showing how there used to be great Republican leaders, even presidents, who looked out for the interests of America and Americans. And how that is no longer true.
The video is one of the most powerful pieces I’ve seen in a long time and features an image by Eclectablog’s very own Anne C. Savage.
Video and more after the jump.Read more ›
