During the electoral unpleasantness of last November (exactly one month ago!) I was on the email list of all the major Mommy and Daddy party candidates.
Obama is still running for office. From today's email inbox:
Dear Whited Sepulchre --
They call me dear....I donated $12.50 to help him defeat She Whose Name Is Not Spoken early in the primaries. Now he's made her Secretary of State. I want a refund.
(There is a conspiracy theory amongst those who choose to believe that Obama hasn't gone stark raving mad .... Obama had to get Hillary out of the Senate so she wouldn't screw up health care, since he wants to screw that up himself. The only way to keep her from sucking all the air out of the room was to offer her a high profile cabinet position, then wait on the inevitable Clinton circus to erupt so he can ask her to resign.
Or it could be that Obama has gone stark raving mad. Can you seriously imagine her diving into the current mess between India and Pakistan?)
Exactly one month ago, you made history by giving all Americans a real opportunity for change.
Now it's time to start preparing and working for change in our communities.
On December 13th and 14th, supporters are coming together in every part of the country to reflect on what we've accomplished and plan the future of this movement. Your ideas and feedback will be collected and used to guide this movement in the months and years ahead. Join your friends and neighbors -- sign up to host or attend a Change is Coming house meeting near you.
I think I'm gonna scrape the Bob Barr sticker off the F-150 and attend one of these. Or maybe I'll just lease a Volvo for that weekend, then go to a Change Is Coming House and LiveBlog it.
Since the election, the challenges we face -- and our responsibility to take action -- have only gotten more urgent.
"our responsibility to take action"....are those the scariest words you've read today?
You can connect with fellow supporters, make progress on the issues you care about, and help shape the future of your community and our country.
Learn what you can do now to support President-elect Obama's agenda for change and continue to make a difference in your community.
Take the first important step by hosting or attending a Change is Coming house meeting. Sign up right now:http://my.barackobama.com/changeiscoming
Or maybe we could convert the Tarrant County Libertarian Meetup into a Change Is Coming event. That would be memorable.
To get our country back on track, it will take all of us working together.
Barack and Joe have a clear agenda and an unprecedented opportunity for change. But they can't do it alone.
Awwww....let's let Barack and Joe try to do it alone. And if they need help after three years and eleven months, lets hire them a couple of temps.
Will you join us at a house meeting and help plan the next steps for this movement?
The result of these "Change Is Coming" house meetings will be dumpsters full of mail headed toward Congress from earnest, organized grievance collectors. They're going to emphasize Barack and Joe's moral responsibility to take action. All your friends and neighbors are going to be gathered 'round the dining room table, passing around a big drippy cauldron of the poisoned Kool-Aid.
May God have mercy on us all.
Obama for America
