Yay me! Thanks to all of you who visit here... especially those who share comments.
The last time I marked a milestone was six months ago – my 1,000th post. Which happened to be a live blog of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary.
Hillary Clinton won in Pennsylvania. That gave her troubled campaign a big boost... while putting fear into the hearts of some Obama supporters. (MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said, “I think Barack Obama has a problem with working white people.”)
That was then. Polls this week show Obama leading John McCain in Pennsylvania by 12 points... 14 points... 15 points... 16 points.
What a long strange trip it’s been.
The night of the Pennsylvania primary, Republican commentator Bill Bennett on CNN hammered Obama on his association with “former terrorists.” Yep, the Bill Ayers/Weather Underground thing.
For six months, this has been a Republican talking point! And it never gained traction with the people. You know why, Mr. Bennett? You know why, Sean Hannity? Because the Cold War is OVER, fucksticks!
Now... below is a treat for funk-loving Obama fans (and/or Obama- loving funk fans): Legendary horn blowers Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis back up a no-name musician (named Willie Amrod) on a loose-but-swingin’ pro-Obama jam.
