Obama RULES! Palin fools.
So it looks like the swing states are a-swingin’ in Obama’s favor due in large part to the current economic shame spiral and the fact that Sarah Palin is a national embarrassment. Finally!!!! I love how the standards for judging Palin’s rhetoric have been set so low since the Katie Couric fiasco that even when she just regurgitates the scripts she has been force fed the republicans rejoice. UGH. Anyway–I’m still nervous. We can’t be complacent. We need to push harder than ever. I heard a rumor that republicans are sending out missionaries to the polling sites to visually profile voters and try to dissuade potential democrats by telling them blatant lies about voter registration. DEMOCRATS PERSEVERE!! This may or may not be true but whatever it takes get you butt in a polling booth. We are about a month away so keep this momentum going!! Check out this amazing international poll which demonstrates the world’s opinion on who should be the president. I don’t know why this isn’t front page news, but it’s pretty amazing. And if you haven’t seen Tina Fey’s imitation of Palin than you haven’t lived. And here. ROCK THE VOTE!!
Added note from a friend:
Together we can make sure these deceptive emails don’t affect this election.
Political experts are already calling deceptive email rumors to the contrary for what they are — shadowy, harmful voter suppression techniques
Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, called the barrage of e-mails “a dirty trick” aimed at suppressing Democratic voters.
“It is terribly wrong,” Sabato said. “Tragically, it is all too common. One would hope the people responsible could be caught and prosecuted.”
It is true that in some states, wearing campaign gear is not allowed at the polls — but no matter what, your vote cannot be taken away from you. At most you will have to take off a button or put a jacket over a T-shirt (or go to the restroom and turn it inside out).
Since different states have different rules, you should direct any questions to your state’s secretary of state or county election officials. Election officials in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina have already issued statements reaffirming that wearing campaign gear will not keep anyone from voting.
Don’t let these email rumors keep you from voting or showing your support for Barack.
Thanks for your help.
