THE POLITICAL SAUSAGE MAKING BEGINS!
I'm linking to a story on Salon about "people powered" Obama coming to the rescue of Rep. John Barrow in Georgia.
Barrow, one of the principal proponents of giving Bush unlimited eavesdropping powers and amnesty to the Telco's, is facing a primary challenge from Regina Thomas, an african-american state senator. Their Savannah district is 70% african-american.
Salon links to an article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution where Obama is coming to the rescue of Barrow and has cut a radio ad to help him fend off this primary challenge
First, Barrow did not endorse Obama until well after the Georgia primary. and 2nd, he's one of the principal backers of the FISA bill.
Does anyone remember when Obama endorsed Liberweinie against Ned Lamont in the CT senate primary? and then in the general didn't want to see "too" helpful to Ned Lamont?
We all know how well that endorsement situation has worked out for Obama. How it has been repaid in kind by Lieberweanie.
Let's remind Obama. Obama's campaign number: (866) 675-2008
and a link to donate through ACT BLUE to fund radio ads today and tomorrow in Steny Hoyer and John Barrow's districts.
When calling, be nice!
