Stop whining.

Stop moaning.

Stop the useless calls to "do something" while suggesting nothing.

Stop being afraid.

Stop preaching to the converted.

Stop obsessing over every poll result.

Stop posting 30 word diaries that basically just say, "the Republicans suck, man!"

Stop the pointless, unfocused anger.

Stop telling other people who already agree with you how rotten McCain and Palin are.

Stop running around like a headless chicken.

Get a grip.

Get going.



Our magnificent candidates are out on the hustings.

Our ground game is cookin'.

Our TV and radio ads are everywhere it counts.

We got buttons, we got signs, we got videos on YouTube.

But there is one area where we are lacking: VIRAL E MAILS.

You and I have seen all the vile bullshit circulated by right wing liars and idiots. It's done real damage to us. Lower information voters often get suckered by this crap. We must fight with the same weapons, and reach as many of these same voters as possible.

And our message MUST BE RELENTLESSLY NEGATIVE. People respond to strength and conviction. People act on strength and conviction.

So, I have a collection of 100% TRUE anti McCain-Palin emails. If 1000 Kossacks each succeed in getting 10 others to circulate these, and then if 10 more respond, and 10 more, that's ONE MILLION VIEWS RIGHT THERE.

Just visit my site and cut and paste 'em. Nothing could be easier.

Here they are:

Is this guy mentally stable?

The Senator Nobody Really Knows [McCain and corruption]

McCain's LOUSY Choice [thanks to Kossack Hudson!]

The Senator and the Terrorist

A Shocking Anti-Veteran Voting Record [Directly from Donkey O.D.]

Senator Do-Nothing, the D.C. Fraud

Job Killer, American Dream Killer

Don't Like Women? That's OK, Neither Does He

How to Cheat on Your Wife and Profit From It

Letter from a POW

These e-mails are unlike the millions of right wing slanders circulating against Obama. They happen to be 100% true, every one of them. Don't underestimate the power of emails, btw--they have done much to damage Obama, This is a way YOU can fight back DIRECTLY, TONIGHT.

There's one more thing. I have set a wildly audacious goal of raising $10,000 for Obama. People tell me it's way high. I should settle for the nearly $1000 I've got now. But this is a WAR we're in. WE MUST WIN.  If you'd like to help me realize my very ambitious goal, hit my contribution site here.


Are you viralizing pro-Obama, anti-McCain videos?

Are you waging the struggle on Facebook and My Space?

Are you registering people to vote? ARE YOU REGISTERED?

Are you writing Letters to the Editor?

Are you canvassing?

This is a war, Kossacks. The Radical Right declared it on us many years ago. The Right Wing Beauty Queen, aka as Palin, declared it on us again this week. Well SCREW HER and SCREW McCAIN. Help me wage my war. I'd love to see the nation's inboxes filled with these.


[Sorry for the repost, but we gotta get these things going!]

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.
