Methinks I need a vacation from the internets. Sigh.

Subject: We Are United For Change – Tell Your Friends!

It’s all over the news: Hillary Clinton will formally endorse Barack Obama on Friday and the campaign for the White House will begin.

This has been an amazing campaign. For the first time in American history, the leading candidates of the nation’s largest party included a woman, an Hispanic, and an African-American. As Democrats, we fully understood the deep prejudices against each, but we smashed those prejudices so we could find the very best candidate to lead our great Nation.

Incredibly, we may have realized Dr. Martin Luther King’s once-impossible dream for his children: to “one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

So now the campaign to take back the White House begins. And we will have to work from now until November to persuade the rest of America to join us in voting for change, however difficult that vote will be.

Let’s start today. Please join me in reaching out to 10 friends and relatives who want to end the disastrous Bush-Cheney-McCain era and start a new Democratic era to create good jobs, achieve energy independence, protect our planet, provide health care to all, end illegal torture and wiretapping, and bring our troops safely home.

If we come together as Democrats, progressives, independents, and thoughtful Republicans, we can win a sweeping victory in November and create a better future for ourselves, our children, and generations to come.

This is the most important election of our lives. Please join me today.

Dear Bob Fertik,

Your blinders, they sound lovely. Please to send me a pair?

P.S. Why no mention of repealing the global gag rule, increased contraceptive access, better sex ed., the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, gay marriage, DOMA, Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, etc., in your laundry list of “yes we can”-isms? Is it because you consider women, gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered persons “special interest” blocks to be thrown under the bus at the whim of the Democratic Party? That doesn’t sound much like “unity” to me, mmmmkay.

P.P.S. Courting the “thoughtful Republican” vote now, are ya? Pander to oxymorons much?
