yep. I got goose bumps.
Just this afternoon, I took cubes of Tillamook Medium Sharp Cheddar cheese and constructed a bust of John McCain's head.
I stared at it --- AND WEPT SOFTLY!
Oh yes, tons of tears. Oh the power. This is just like the time those guys did that thing with that flag on that hill of which I know nothing about.
I don't want to hurt any opera diva feelings, seeing as I have a touch of the opera diva myself, but... I don't think they needed her there at the end.
...and then they found baby Obama, lying in a manger.
Who is this Chang, for whom I'm supposed to vote?
I'm too anxious to enjoy this stuff anymore. I just want to elect the (inspirational) fucker (in whom I place all of my hopes for this nation) already.
How can we help Obama... well we could go door-to-door or help people register to vote. Nah, let's make a youtube video and waste money on red, white and blue ponchos.
Was that supposed to look like an Obama logo?
Andy, from what I hear from my AK peeps, they're doing all that stuff too. But yeah, I did think of the plastic ponchos in the landfills, because I'm that way.
It was great.
No one gets teared up over McCain. No one.
So, it really doesn't hurt that Arcade Fire provide the soundtrack...but, DAMN, I should not be crying about an election. That's what crazy nationalists do. And yet, I'm crying...Five days, man! Five days!
Thanks for posting Dan! A couple of weeks ago there was a rally for Obama/Biden in Anchorage (same location as on the video) and a McCain/Palin rally in the Anchorage convention center at the same time. That day was cold too. 1500 people showed up for Obama, 300 for McCain. That may sound unimportant, but I think it is huge. We are the reddest of the red states, and the Republican VP nominee is from our home state and they could only get 300 people!? It was the first time I allowed myself to think if this is the reaction in Alaska of all places, Obama really does have a chance. People do want change. They aren't just saying it.
Oops! Didn't mean to post twice - my bad
Don't worry about it, Jennifer - your remarks were worth reading twice.
I needed that
Ahh Homer ... where even the Republicans are liberals.
It would be just the thing if Obama took Alaska. And Homer is a really nice town. People there get worked up about the important stuff-should the second traffic light in town be red-yellow-green or just blinking yellow?
Hey you greenies out there-I was an organizer for this event and am a big greenie so don't worry about the ponchos. We saved them and will use them again. We didn't want to be wasteful, asked folks to wear red, white or blue and only used ponchos for those who didn't know.
And don't you worry about this being a waste of time, we did this in one hour, before hundreds of people went door knocking, phone banking and postcard writing. In fact, Obama supporters in AK have sent over 50,000 postcards to voters in swing states. I'd say up here in the frigid north we're doing our part, and better yet, finding ways for everyone to be involved. Not everyone will want to make calls or knock on doors and that's ok. Some people want to come to an event where they feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. Something that gives them hope. Isn't that what Senator Obama has been saying all along? Based on the thousands of hits on You Tube and the comments that say it brings people to tears I'd say this was worth our time and effort.
Let's just stay positive and keep working until we know Obama has won!!!! Now I'm off to write postcards and make calls.
