There's this teabagger who likes to bug me from time to time. I don't really care, it can be amusing (even if mostly scary) to get a glimpse of the world these people lives in. A world of Fox Nonsense, half term governor, crazy racist on the radio and a long chain of paranoia and madness.

(More after the jump)

ETA: VIDEOS OF THE RALLY IN SEATTLE TODAY. IT'S A MUST SEE. THE CAR-IN-THE-DITCH STORY WAS NEVER MORE FUNNY.

So, the other day i got this mail: "You are sick. You imagine things. 35,000 people didn't come to see Obama, they came to see that black singer (He didn't bother with John Legend' actual name). Obama was just the sid kick there. You better accept that you, your party and your anti-American president are dead".

Usually i don't bother to answer him. It's useless to talk to crazy racists. This time i sent a very respectful "F**** you".

Maybe we really live in a parallel universe, in which Barack Obama brings tens of thousands of young adoring spectators anywhere he goes, but at least our universe is real. Honestly, i never expect these rallies to look like this. President Obama should have been history by now, they told me so on TV. But he goes to Portland, they expect 5000 people and gets 10000, with many stying outside. He goes to Seattle, and as SeattleProgressive colorfully describes - it was spectacular. As someone who deeply believes in this president - these last couple of weeks makes me truly happy. I'm not alone. Far, far from it.

President Obama's schedule for the final weekend before the election:

Saturday Oct. 30:

Obama in Philadelphia, Chicago, Bridgeport, CT for Moving America Forward GOTV events.

Sunday Oct. 31:

Obama and Biden in Cleveland for Moving America Forward GOTV rally.

Just listen to the crowd. It's quite amazing.

And a couple of home-made clips by people who were there, and yesterday in Oregon. Enthusiasm gap my......!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

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.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
