In my neck of the woods, the local Republicans are showing a real green thumb (actually, perhaps green hammer) as there is green sprouting all over. Green signs with a gas pump are appearing with the words "Drill Now! Pay Less! Vote GOP!"
Now, other than the direct linkage of a gas pump and the Republican Party (the Grand Oil Party), it is hard to see any honesty in this poster. It is a continuation of the concerted Republican efforts to mislead and lie to the American people about critical energy issues. It is, in fact, impressive that this sign can be deceptive and simply dishonest on so many levels at the same time.

This is a cross-posting. I posted this yesterday on DailyKos and it was on the rec list for a good part of the day. I was encouraged to repost it regularly and widely.
The video I'm posting here may have been posted in the past. I'm not really sure. A quick search didn't reveal anything.
I think that we are at a different moment of time in this presidential race. I've also posted this video in a few comments on DailyKos and the responses have often been to encourage me to post a diary.
This race is about McCain. About the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Rice quartet of horror.
The Republican convention ran on an agenda of fear-mongering, "POW POW POW", lies, Iraq, war, stealing the change mantra, and lastly, the POW-Palin ticket. Dems have run on change and hope.
So I thought since the Republicans stole change, we ought to steal fear.
Because, unlike the Republicans, we actually havea lot to be afraid of!
And to prove this, I'm reposting the most bone-chilling 5-minute video about the war-mongering McCain out there.

was a child soldier in Afghanistan when he was detained by US forces there in the so-called War on Terror and taken to Guantanamo where he was subjected to various types of torture - recognized as torture, that is, except to the Bush Administration, who call it anything else. You can sign this petition to help in his behalf here. Read more about him and the petition (at bottom) below:

Over the last few days the McCain camp has started to get desperate with all the good news for Obama. So what does a campaign run by the architect of negative campaigning do?
Do some good 'ole negative campaigning of course. Here's a recap.

Last night I posted a call to action after one of the most unfair and uninformative debates ever. It got a overwhelming response and tons of donations poured in. But we can't just do that for one night. We have primaries to win still and we need to keep the focus on action up. We still need to be taking action. Calling voters in PA. Traveling to PA for GOTV. Donating to the campaign so they have the resources to win. Doing whatever you can. And so I bring you the third day of Obama Action Week.
