Those of us of a certain age can look for our old Mondale/Ferraro memorabelia so we can scratch out the name of the VP nominee in discuss. We can sit here and bitch and moan about what Obama should or shouldn’t do. We can wonder about which Clinton crony will dig into the cesspool next to find something else to throw out. But here’s a fact:
Over the next six weeks, the Pennsylvania campaign is going to be a lot like New Hampshire — only on a much, much bigger and uglier scale. There is advertising to be bought, staff that needs to be paid, volunteers who need support. And we now know that the Clinton campaign will have to reach upwards to crawl into a sewer.
Fighting the good fight will take cash. Lots and lots of cash. Each one of us who believes in a healthy democracy needs to stand up and reach into our back pocket.
Send a message that neither David Duke-style bigotry nor the more subtle hate-mongering of “he’s a good Christian… as far as I know” has any legitimate place in the Democratic party. You see that Obama ’08 logo at the upper right corner? Click on it, like my husband and I did earlier. Chip in $25 or $100 or whatever you can scrounge out of the couch. But click on that widget and give NOW.
