Today the Republicans blocked financial reform. They voted with the bankers and against the American worker's 401Ks, college investments and home security. Its time to pounce on this issue, frame it and make it ours to diffuse the certain loses that are due in 2010.

Because of a team of terrible advisors such as this guy:
By the end of the campaign, I was seeing the Drudge siren in my sleep. As people in politics know all too well, Matt Drudge, the Internet provocateur who runs the Drudge Report Web site, posts a flashing siren whenever he wants to alert readers to major campaign news or rumors. The siren haunted my dreams and was always in the corner of my eye -- except when it was in plain sight, on my computer screen, signifying success or, more often, terrible failure and impending doom. As soon as that siren started flashing, instant messages would pop up, just below the siren, one after another -- each one beginning with "Seen Drudge?" until my entire computer screen was filled with instant-message boxes illuminated by the light of Drudge's siren. It might have been beautiful if it hadn't been so frightening.http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/1
I hope to never see his name associated with another Democratic candidate. How can you win an election when you spend your time waiting to see what a right wing gossip site has to say?

Remember al Qaida? While we are bickering over minute details of the Obama cabinet, worrying about the economy and replaying the primary wars, al-Qaida has given America a clear path to victory.
They leveled a major racial attack on Obama. The #2 man al-Zawahri called Obama a "house negro" and is trying to rally Muslims against him with racial attacks. They recognize the danger Obama represents. But their racial attacks destroy the façade that they are an Islamic movement representing the Muslim word. Instead they are a racist organization that has an Arab First mentality.
Obama needs to exploit this opening, denounce their leadership as Arab racists, discuss the prevalent racism in Arab societies and plant the seeds of al-Qaida's finial destruction. He needs to point out how their attacks rarely kill other Arabs but instead Pashtuns, Asians, Kurds, and Africans are the true suffering people. A good start would be an interview with al Jerzeera to begins a strong race based smear campaign that will mortally wound al-Qaida and force them to play defense on their home turf, the PR game. His race, his name and his oration lend him international credibility that could resonate in the Muslim world. Al Qaida is afraid of him and their fear has given Obama an opportunity that must be exploited quickly.
This is one of the (many) benefits to having a black man with the name Barack Hussein Obama as our president. He needs to use his race and his name as a foil to destroy the al Qaida PR machine and destroy international Islamic terrorism.

Are early votes included in exit polls?
When do these votes get counted?
Is anyone else having problems with TPM's site or is it just me?

This site has a comprehensive list of state-by state voting laws.
You would be surprised by how much rights you actually have. Find your state, click on the link and pass the info around.
Use them or lose them!

I am all for Obama. I will do all I can to help elect him.
Give my Time
Promote him to people I know.
But Self Mutilation?
I don't think I would go that far.
- Maybe a tattoo but not black eyes and facial scars-
But Self Mutilation? geez.
The right seems to be full of such people. They openly discuss making donations to Obama under nefarious names, they happily lie and repeat those lies and the openly attempt to suppress votes.
What is wrong with those people? Perhaps I am not a "real American" but I just don't get it.

It begins! Finially!
Robert F Kenedey on Huffpost
While retaining her Republican registration, she attended the AIP's 1994 convention where the party called for a draft constitution to secede from the United States and create an independent nation of Alaska. The McCain Campaign has reluctantly acknowledged that she also attended AIP's 2000 Convention. She apparently found the experience so inspiring that she agreed to give a keynote address at the AIP's 2006 convention and she recorded a video greeting for this year's 2008 convention. In other words, this is not something that happened when she was eight!
Can you imagine the outrage if a dem had this in his/her closet?
Please Digg/Buzz/Stumbleupon it or whatever.
This is the best way to effective way to fight the swiftboating of Obama. Otherwise this Ayers story will just hang on until its part of the election "story." The media will use this story to balance the Ayers coverage and it will effectively destroy Palin's career. More please!

How can Palin be talking about Ayers when Palin addressed the secessionist Alaskan Freedom Party? Her husband is a member and there is video where she says "keep up the good work" when addressing them.
Why is Biden not bringing this up? That is what VP's are for!
Biden, and other surrogates must get the story out on Palin and her secessionist "pals" to counter the dirt that is getting thrown at Obama.
This Ayers story has already has been pounded into the MSM. Even as the newsfolks say the charges are false, its being repeated enough that it has become part of the campaign.
Sound familiar? Its 2004 swiftboating all over again.
Biden and crew need to come out and talk about the Alaska Freedom Party and Palin's ties to it. This will negate the Ayers story and ruin any chance of a Palin 2012 run.
Every day they talk about Ayers, the Alaskan Freedom Party should be mentioned.

I grew up in Central WI, there we have Joe-ThirtyTwo Pack.
Also, my mom is from a hard living northern Minnesota family, there we have Joe-1/5 of a whiskey bottle.
Also, my dad is from a devote Lutheran family in rural Iowa, there we have Joe-No Pack.
Also, my wife is from a nice suburb of Minneapolis, there we have Joe 2 bottles of whatever Merlot is on sale.
So I don't understand who she is talking about, also. Perhaps she is making a reference to the people who used to work in factories, also, but didn't McCain's economic policies close all of those factories? Also. So who is she speaking to? Also. Maybe she is talking about my friends who buy six packs of local craft brews. Also. But Doggonit. Also. I just doubt that those 20-30 something, also, college grads will break for that brand of also populism, maverick.
Can anyone help? Also. Who is she speaking to?

I just got this forwarded email from a friend. He was a huge Romney backer. He probably won't vote for the Big O but still he could not believe that Romney was talking about McSame.
McCain's lies are catching up to him. Here is an early example of how a fellow republican dubbed McCain's tactics "reprehensible."
As McCain grows more desperate, his "straight talk" principles have been thrown out the window - if they ever were there in the first place.
He has lied about his own economic plan.
He has lied about his running mate's multiple earmarks.
He has lied about his opponent's record.
He has lied about his fellow Republican's record.
He has even lied about his own lies.
And now he is claiming he is responsible for the invention of the blackberry...it has become pathological!
His ambition has stolen any honor he might have had.
