The poll in NY Times is saying Sarah Palin is pulling down McCain and that many people feel she is not qualified to be president.
I work outside in the Old South End. The last couple of months , I have seen and talked to many small teams of Obama workers going house to house . They are from New York and other states. I am not an Obama supporter , but it is fascinating to see the large amount of energy and committment in his ground team.
This is a travesty. Eight years after the Florida debacle, we're still dealing with this situation? Hey, it's only the most important thing we do as a democracy. No need to get it right.
RED ALERT Tip: Two quotes from the Obama-Khalidi videotape
...statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying
"Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine"
"genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis."
Some of you oldtimers (besides myself) may recall 'Country Joe' and the Fish. They played at the legendary Woodstock concert. Well, here comes 'Plumber Joe' and the (you fill in the blank...Wealth Spreaders? Uncertifieds?)...
I recommended this guy make the most of his 15 minutes; looks he's doing just that.
So, not only does the Lucas County Children Services use questionable wording on their campaign material, but as Maggie Thurber wrote in August, they also have questionable math. And they want us to trust them?
A really good read:
I always thought that convicted felons could not vote. I even heard on a national talk show a guy joking about felons not being able to vote. A friend of mine convicted for non-payment of child support thinks he cannot vote.
Sylvania, OH – House District 46 candidate Darlene Dunn and the Ohio Democratic Party have recently released television and printed ad campaigns against State Representative Barbara Sears that claim Rep.

The presidential race has no doubt tightened in national polls (Reuters, Rasmussen, others) but it's not reflected in the key state-by-state breakdowns. Still, this could end up closer than some thought possible couple weeks back:
When I learned of this up-coming spot some weeks back, my initial thought was 'too much' and probably 'unneccessary'. After three Prez. debates and wall-to-wall ads since Labor Day, this could well be over-exposure:
The Sylvania merger "study" is getting play in our local media. I find it interesting that OneSylvania protested when the Sylvania Township trustees took a position on the merger in a 3-0, but now the Sylvania City Council President is the "pro merger" spokesperson? Isn't that a tad hypocritical? Are there any "Joe the Plumber" types in favor of a merger?
Terrorist strikes on four American cities. Russia rolling into Eastern Europe. Israel hit by a nuclear bomb. Gay marriage in every state. The end of the Boy Scouts.
All are plausible scenarios if Democrat Barack Obama is elected president, according to a new addition to the campaign conversation called "Letter from 2012 in Obama's America," produced by the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family Action.
The imagined look into the future is part of an escalation in rhetoric from Christian right activists who are trying to paint Obama in the worst possible terms as the campaign heads into the final stretch and polls show the Democrat ahead.
Here is the message that Sarah Palin left on my answering machine. Of course I want to believe she called me personally, but I know better. You can tell it is crunch time and that Ohio is in play.

Fairfield City and school district leaders have "condemned" the actions of a Fairfield resident who last week displayed a ghost with Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama's name on it — hanging from a tree by a noose.
The question of when "Joe the Plumber’’ would hit the road for John McCain has finally been answered — Tuesday.
The "Joe the Plumber" Tour, featuring Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher," is expected to make its first stop in Columbus Tuesday morning and then head west toward Dayton and then south to Cincinnati.

For Immediate Release:
