Ms. Palin -- An Open Letter to the RNC Canditate for VP

Dear Ms. Palin,

I quote from your nomination speech from the RNC:

"To the families of special needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters.

I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House. "

And then:

"I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer", except that you have actual responsibilities. "

My mother has worked with special needs children for over two decades. She has become, out of necessity-- not out of some megalomaniacal quest for power-- a "community organiser" in that she has rallied the community of parents of special needs children in my home town, and has turned them INTO a community-- a community that works together towards the betterment of their children's situation. Because together, they are stronger than they are alone, and together they can bring about change.

In May of 1764, in Boston, Massachusetts, James Otis first raised the issue of taxation without representation, and urged a united response by THE COMMUNITY. The result was a boycott of British goods that would eventually lead to the Boston Tea Party.

Where, Ms. Palin, would we be without the community that organized that?

In 1917, Wasilla, Alaska, was established with the construction of the Alaska Railroad. But it wasn't until 1974 that COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS banded together to incorporate the town into a City.

Where, Ms. Palin, would YOU be without the community that organized that?

In short, Ms. Palin, stop attacking your opponents and stop denigrating the "small town" people whose day to day existence makes this country great, and let's hear about your policies and your PLANS to actually do something about the world of shit that your party currently has us wallowing in.

In short, Ms. Palin, screw you.

    So on a POSITIVE note (which I seem to share so few of recently), I've been seeing a trainer for the last year or so. Twice a week, 30 minutes a…

    I may or may not have just scared off a raccoon that was outside my window with a lightsaber flashlight.
