In her segment last night on the national discussion regarding the value of government, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow highlighted yesterday's budget rally in Springfield. She noted that the crowd had at one point chanted "Show some guts!" (watch a clip of that chant here) and went on to discuss the issue with Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (full video on the MSNBC site):
During the interview portion, Rendell went on to say: "I think there are progressives in this country who are way out in front of the politicians, and I love the fact that the Illinois protesters were saying, 'Show some guts,' because I think that's exactly what we need to do. If we're gonna go down in November -- and I don't think we are -- if we're gonna go down, let's go down fighting for the things we believe in. Let's not be afraid."
