we have alot of real work to do and i am counting on you to help me get it done.
i will start and finish on the same note, oft repeated; BARACK OBAMA is the only candidate in the presidential campaign worthy to serve as prez of the u.s. please listen to:
listen to the entire 10 minutes. many thanks to my nephew esevan for sending me this video. i have been saying for months on end that hillary will stoop to any level to win this nomination: ethics, truth, human decency, consideration for the democratic party, respect for her fellow americans—-all be damned. regarding the geraldine ferraro fiasco——you may consider me even more twisted than hillary for the following thought ( i already have admitted that i am obama UNworthy): i wouldn’t put it past hillary and geraldine to have actually cooked up and orchestrated this whole silly mess. geraldine would have been willing to be the sacrificial lamb in order to allow hillary another deliberate stab at obama.
so far, obama has been true to his campaign promise to stay above the fray and not sling mud. so far, obama and his staffers have run an efficient and successful campaign. hillary’s mess doesn’t hold a candle to obama’s organization. at every turn and insult dished out by hillary, obama has come back with plain talk and sound, straightforward logic.
if hillary keeps up this nonsense, there will be no winner except john mccain. please go read charles krauthammer’s piece in the washington post op-ed today 3/14/08. i don’t generally like his thoughts but i daresay he is right on in this article.
so we have our work cut out for us. its time to play DISSIN’ FOR DOLLARS. please refer to my earlier blog on the ground rules. we will catch more flies with honey. so lets reward obama’s civility by sending in those checks. this is the best way we can support obama—-the only truly presidential candidate in this race.
my nephew esevan was quite taken aback by “breakdowns” accompanying all the polls, e.g. blacks, whites, females, males, youngsters, oldsters, etc. he doesn’t understand why this practice is so prevalent in our country. i could not cite a good reason. the only weak answer i have is that every group needs to have another group be below them to kick around. is this need for “superiority” human nature? i hope not. i would love to hear any better answers you may have.
for laughs, remember alan sherman’s funny song parodies from the 1960’s and 1970’s (“hello mudda, hello fadda, here i am in camp granada”)? one of his social parodies called “national brotherhood week” is especially relevant to my above thoughts on cultural breakdowns. part of the lyrics to this song are “the white folks hate the black folks and the black folks hate the white folks……and everyone hates the jews…..because its national brotherhood week….”. if you can find this song anywhere on the web, listen to it. you’ll laugh your head off.
some more humor: there are these 2 ladies in los angeles who are filling in on the stephanie miller show on the radio this week. their names are francis and angela and thus, the name of their program is “frangela”. google “frangela radio show” for more info. these 2 women are hysterical and so entertaining.
thanks to my son chuck for buying the domain name of “yo mama for obama” for me. his most excellent friend, chrisetta, was the brains behind this move. and thank you to another of chuck’s friends, coocane, for furthering my education in rather esoteric areas.
so onward with our fight. lets let hillary know just how mean-spirited and off-track she is by sending in our dollars to reward obama. let’s focus on issues. let’s fight mccain and the republicans by questioning his supposed strengths, e.g. why should we stay in iraq for a hundred years? who made us the policemenn of the world? why should we sacrifice our domestic and national needs to a foreign policy of saving the world rather than saving ourselves? hit him hard where he claims his deepest experience.
the only way obama is going to win the race with hillary and obama is if we continue to support him. let us not dwell on his opportunistic friend pastor wright and his poisonous, devisive message. obama wants conciliation, not conflict. we need to get along with each other before we can change policy. so lets focus on, for example, the wonderful article in the n.y. times today 3/14/08 on obama’s incredible mama:
furthermore, we need to support obama with our cold cash. give and then give again. give for the greater good.
YES WE CAN.
yo mama for obama
