Okay, I know the health care bill is a big disappointment. And climate change is stalled. The big banks aren't being broken up. Who knows when immigration reform is happening? And don't even get me started about the 2nd big escalation into Afghanistan.
Politics sometimes really sucks. But I want to once again argue that you should keep hope alive, sometimes miracles do happen. By some weird lightning strike of fate, with voting closing at 5:00 pm EST tomorrow, I am currently ahead in the voting for the Air America blogger contest.
It would help me continue in my blogging efforts, it would help give publicity to my book The Progressive Revolution, and I would get to spend a week strategizing about progressive politics with Rachel Maddow, Howard Dean, Bobby Kennedy, Jr, and lots of other smart folks. How cool would that be?
If I've convinced you, and if you like my writing here, please vote here. And if you want to help with the GOTV operations, while we are not going door to door, you could post this link to your Facebook status:
