OP vacation

OP closes up shop every year to encourage everyone to get away from the keyboard and spend time with your loved ones and yourself. See you in 2008!

Apologies for any confusion, I just made the necessary change to switch the blog back to eastern standard time. Goodbye daylight. :-(


I have added a new calendar of events to the site. I would like to keep it limited to mostly just election-related events for now. You can find a link to it near the top of the side bar to the right.

Please contact us if you know of additional events we should add, and include a link or as much information as you can find.

OP takes a holiday

Next week all of OrangePolitics will be on vacation! The archives will remain available, but no new comments will be allowed and there will be no new posts from Sunday 8/21 to Sunday 8/28.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy the summer weather before schools starts again and the fall campaigns get fully underway.

Talk fast

To keep the conversation moving forward here, all posts will now expire after a certain number of days. I propose 90 days, but I'm open to suggestions.

This change will take effect on Monday so you can get any last words in over the weekend.


I have a few cool new things to announce for OrangePolitics users.

First, you can now preview your comment before you submit it. Just look below the Submit button and you will see a live preview that updates as you type!

Second, user registration is now open to all. You may make your own account here by clicking on the Register link near the top of the right-hand navigation bar. Right now, the only thing this enables you to do is create your own user profile and write draft guest posts. If you do register, be sure to click on the Users tab to fill in your profile. And if you write a guest post, drop us a line to let us know it's there.

In the future, there may be other advantages to registering here, but right now it's mostly a novelty.
