My all time personal favorite phone banker

She’s petite, with white cotton-candy hair and naturally rosy cheeks. Her glasses are perched on the end of her nose. She reminds me for all the world of the grandmother who lived with us in my growing-up years, especially her voice. She’s not loud, not soft, but comfortably in between. And she is unfailingly polite to those she calls in the course of our phone bank.

So we were a bit startled this evening by a very rare moment in which she raised her voice. She’d been gently trying to persuade an undecided voter. After listening for a bit she let out a small exasperated sigh, followed by “Well, I’m pro-life, too. Good heavens, I have nine children!” He signed on.

Yup, I'm going there.

They welcome the thinking, they can damned well wear the label.

Mitt's Military



With apologies to the late Peter Graves who got to utter that particular line several times, couldn't find any pics of that scene.


Also, I know there's already a thread about this meme, but it opens very mangled in my dialup. So...

Romney was stunning.

Romney doesn't want to be President of the United States. He thinks he's running for President of the World. He has no concept of the sovreignty of nations. He has no understanding of history nor of the cultural inheritances that inform countries other than our own. In fact, important measures of our own history utterly escape him. If it doesn't appear in his accustomed spreadsheet it doesn't exist or it's irrelevant. His one skill is making money; his massive failure is his inability to comprehend that economies are not limited to money. His narrowness of vision, imposed on this nation, would render us incapable of functioning in a world where money is but one of many, many languages.

We had hoped that Sarah Palin would be the last worst example of inexcusable ignorance. Sadly, Mitt Romney presently captains a field of candidates who make Palin brilliant by default.

Horses and bayonets, indeed.

Mobile "yard sign"

This one prints up on 11 x 17 paper. Glued to a piece of cardboard it props up in my windshield wherever I park the car.
