Welcome to the 5th District Democratic Party

New Blog for the 5th District Democrats
"The Left Coast of Iowa" online now on our website.
Blog is short for 'web log' - a sort of live online forum to instantly post ideas and information
to anyone who comes to our website. Several folks have been asked to regularly post new
columns on the blog, and anyone can post comments on what the author has written.

If you would like to become an official regular contributor of the new blog, just click here and explain why you should be a regular blogger on our site.

Refocusing the Democratic Party's Message:

"Brand Democrat" concept from Oliver Willis with additional input from across the web.

The Immortal Words of Steve King:

"The dismembered and charred corpses of American contractors dangling over the Euphrates River in comparison to the abuse committed by a few soldiers at Abu Ghraib are like the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer compared to those of Heidi Fleiss. What amounts to hazing is not even in the same ballpark as mass murder."

--Steve King, May 13, 2004


The Immoral Denial of Steve King's Chief of Staff:

"He never said it and didn't even imagine it."

--Chuck Laudner, King's chief of staff, Des Moines Register, August 16, 2004
