I took a week out of my life to come down here from Palo Alto to work for Francine Busby.  I've just gotten home from working 14 hours and I'm reading these blogs and I'm so pissed off I can't see straight.  Busby is great...I met her yesterday and while I would have worked my ass off for anyone who was a dem, it was especially sweet that she is as intelligent and warm as she is.  As for my fellow Kossacks who see fit to torpedo her...I have a few things to say to you.

Hell yea, we all want to win.  And hell yea, we're all bummed out about what happened last week.  But Jesus Christ...Francine is taking one for the team in this race, you know?  Who among us would like to endure the Republican machine head on?  Who among us would like to endure ads on TV that say you condone child pornography, and that you're a liar, that impugn your character a hundred times a week? For those who have called her a lousy candidate and stupid...why don't you put your money where your mouth is and do a better job than she's doing.

Did you at least help her campaign?  Did you phonebank for her if you didn't live in the area?  Did you come down and walk for 12 hours a day if you do live in the area?  We have 300-400 volunteers who have been working their freaking asses off...I've only been here a week, and I'm amazed by them.  It's an honor to work beside them.  They're putting it down where it counts...on the ground.

And if you're not willing to do any of that, get the hell out of our way.  We're busy trying to get our fucking country back.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
