now more than ever

mccain drove me crazy during last week's debate. he claimed that we were clearly winning in iraq. he claimed that a $5000 tax break is a better idea than actual government healthcare assistance. he couldn't put a finger on any way his policies would be different from those of george w. bush.

palin's incoherent blather last night was the last straw.

i made a donation to the obama-biden campaign this morning.

if you don't want to see four more years of what we've got now, and you've got a little money to spare...i encourage you to do the same thing. i have no illusions that this ticket is perfect or that there will be huge changes overnight; neither of those things are possible.

however, they are the only electable ticket who gives us a chance of moving incrementally away from the last eight years. that much, i do believe.

Or even if you don't have money! I donated for the first time this cycle a couple of weeks ago, and I'm thinking about going and knocking on doors in Wisconsin or something. I just can't stomach Palin anywhere near the nukular stockpile.
