It's 29 days until November 2.  And I am sitting out these mid-terms.  (Keep reading)

Early voting is underway in seven states now, and more soon.

We have to save the Supreme Court.  No more Roberts or Alitos.  

We have to help the Senate in order to save the Supreme Court.

Chris Bowers, Senate Snapshot, 10/1/10

More and better Dems in the US House, State Governor's Mansions, State Houses, and anywhere else will only help us all.  

I need your help - because I need to sit out these mid-terms.  

Dad died Saturday morning after a long battle with cancer.  As some of you know, he signed hospice papers right before NN in July.  He started refusing liquids last week, so we knew it would end soon.  The kids and I are leaving after school today and returning home Wednesday.  


My husband of 23 years filed divorce papers last Tuesday, September 28th.  He told me Labor Day Sunday that he wanted out of our marriage.  He moved out the next day.  This was about a 97% complete surprise to me.  I will not discuss any further details in this public forum.  

My precious and precocious son has a preliminary diagnosis of Asperger's from his new psychiatrist.  He is going to have the official tests soon.  

My darling daughter is a bit more clingy these days. The kids and I are staying in our family home through the end of the school year.  

I am going to spend the next few weeks taking care of my kids and myself.  I know I am getting through this only with the help of my friends.  Everyone online and in real life - neighbors, church, just everyone is being so great.  

I need you to get out there:


Knock on Doors

Bake for volunteers

Donate Money

Share Rides

Get OUT the VOTE

Whatever it takes.


Save the Supreme Court by Saving the Senate.  

Help us all by helping all other Dems Nationally, State-wide, and Locally.  

And, if you need a bit more motivation, do it for them:

October 2008:  For a "prize" after early voting, my kids wanted their picture taken with flat Obama.  Yes, I am a #politicaljunkie.

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.
