Listen to just one more. We knocked on the friendly door of a UPI reporter who said she could take no sides because of her job. A large cockatoo sat on her shoulder listening eagerly. So I turned to him and asked him if he was for Kerry. The bird squawked loudly and nodded his head vigorously several times.
I asked the woman if she had taught him that. No, was her answer.
Other anecdotes there are to tell and I admit I’ve done little for the Obama camp per se, in that I work so hard for a living. Weekends too.
But as the days pass, so my conviction grows that it’s Obama or the highway to extinction for all of us.
Please help. Please go to barackobama.com and volunteer for a list of liberals. Let your fingers do the walking. Get those knees jerking.
And by the way, what would be wrong if an Arab-American did run for president? And what if Obama were a Muslim?
Our world is sick and dying. More than a theory. Get out there. We need you.
