Community Organizer?

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

I completely stole this from Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Nachos:

One community organizer who moved a nation, when our political leaders wouldn't.

yep, only these slimy fucks would dare use the phrase "community organizer" as a negative buzzword to rile up their base. For a huge swath of middle America, community organizer = infamous GOP punching back Al Sharpton. Disgusting. Rickey wonders why Obama hasn't fired back with the same response you just used... Hell, they should bring up McCain's vote against making MLK Day a national holiday while they're at it.

I am worried that all this negativity is working. It's keeping Mccain from having to talk about any policy at all and instead just keep the questions coming about Obama and his history.

Obama needs to respond.

This quote needs to get out more in my opinion: "It's not rocket science," Palin said, "It's $6 million and 53 employees." -- Sarah Palin, October 1996, on being mayor of Wasilla.

Although that keeps her in the news and we don't need any more of that. They will never admit (or recognize) that Community Organizing is a lot harder than that.

Obama (or a surrogate) could say something like:

"When McCain and Palin look down on community organizers he is looking down on those who organize everyday citizens to take action when politicians forget where they came from.

John McCain is looking down on those who help communities feed the poor.

John McCain is looking down on advocates for better housing.

McCain and Palin must think they are somehow better than these fine people:

Community Organizers like John Doe, who organizes his Detroit Community to fight poverty, like Jane Smith, who organizes her Dayton Ohio community around the cause of feeding senior citizens.

Like Martin Luther King who organized the civil rights community.

John McCain might think these types of activities are beneath him, but to everyday citizens, these are the real mavericks and advocates for change in this country.”

I'm not sure who said it first out on the blogs, but I love this comment on the issue: Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor.
