I, for one, am really sick of all the BS going on in all the national blogs, here, dKos, whatever. Grow up people. Your candidate's not the nominee? Sorry, but the fact is that if we get Mr. Third Term, things are far worse. So, let's let the election play out, civilly. And then when the result is clear, take a day, have a good cry if necessary, then get to working to ensure that Mr. Third Term never becomes president.
I heard an interview with Chris Anderson a while back, and well, there is a lot of truth in his book. You see the results on the internet particularly well, with itunes and the like.
i actually spoke to a friend yesterday who commented that calitics assumed an insider knowledge. I was kind of suprised by that, but going back I think it's true. For my part, I'll do my best to provide background as much as possible. Oh, and I'll try to optimize for searching too.
For a lot of us who walked for McNerney, this was one of the motivating factors. Iraq isn't just some vote. It's the vote. I'm not giving up on him yet, but it's going to be hard to justify driving out to Danville next year for this kind of BS.
Why does he deserve money? I deserve money for blogging about California politics for the last two years, but I didn't send Phil Angelides a bill. If you volunteer to do something, you can't ask money for it later.
Also, appropriating somebody's name is well, confusing for the consumer.
Perhaps, but AT&T has lots and lots of money, and resolutions are expensive. Bing spent $80 million on Prop 87 (oil tax) and that still failed. I suppose we could get it through if Yahoo and Google poured some cash in, but it seems unlikely.
Now, I'm not going to say don't put your money on Charlie Brown in CA-04, but the district is hardly a swing district. Charlie Brown, like Jerry McNerney has no political history. I'm in favor of building a bench, but that ain't the only way to win a race. As shown by Jerry and Charlie, one way is to just show up, try hard, and work with the grassroots.
Of course, finding a self-funder wouldn't hurt either...
