In an amazing turn of events MSM just served up a portion of the truth. I'm surprised. I'm used to the excuses and self laudatory attitide coupled with dismissing most of the country but telling the truth? Allowing it on TV?
Who'd a thunk it? But they did, today, on NBC's This Week when they released and discussed the results of their latest survey. Would America elect an African American, a woman or a 72 yr old? Results on the flip plus a bonus review of grassroots organizing in action...
First, to those results from This Week. I didn't find the results but they were in my Tivo so watch the webcast if you want.
African American +8
72 yr old -23
That's right. Minus 23. Holy Cow. Just look at those numbers. They really don't take a lot of interpertation do they? This is confirmation of something I've noticed. I'll ask people; "What one word comes to mind when you hear McCain OR How would you describe McCain in one word?"
It's not McWar or McBush or McCheney...it's McOld.
Now, today, a rural county in Maine held their first county wide meeting since the caucuses. Last fall you would be lucky to get 10 people to a county mtg. They got 30 people to come to the caucus training and 27 caucus sites convened a few weeks ago. Today, 56 people turned out for the county meeting. This is happening All Across the Country.
Change is in the air and people want to Work for Change. Make no mistake, it will take work, the phone calling, canvassing type of work. It will take everything we can give and then some but if we do, we will win. We will win the Presidency, the Senate, keep the Congress, win legislative seats adn more.
Again, I encourage you to add your own local story here. It's critical we revitalize the local party and build on the momementum we're seeing.
