UPDATE: VIDEO ADDED

 

END UPDATE

 

Just in case anybody was wondering.

He may have said it a gazillion times tonight but I am not convinced that John McCain thinks of me as his friend.

Peace & solidarity,

Since I will be dedicating my time to GOTV efforts my ability to provide content on this blog for both of my readers will be curtailed. I do have a number of recommendations for the faithful.

For news and views about southern Minnesota and the 1st CD’s Tim Walz, the first place I go to is A Bluestem Prairie. Ollie Ox keeps the stories coming and provides facts and insight on politics in the 1st CD. Ollie also keeps a watchful eye on the MSM and does not hesitate to tell ‘the rest of the story’.

Charlie Quimby provides an an eclectic mix of content at Across The Great Divide. From reviews of lemonade stands and bar cuisine, commentary on biking (the kind of biking as my mother used to say, “you pedal you legs off to give your ass a ride”), and short, powerful essays on the economy, there is always something interesting for the reader. His serious stuff is at Growth and Justice.

McPherson Hall always provides thoughtful, well researched analysis and commentary on legislation, public policy and candidates at Minnesota Central.

Some of my other favorites include Blog of the Moderate Left, Mercury Rising, Liberal in the Land of the Conservative, BlueMan in a Red District, Tild, and The Mississippifarian.

All progressive or Lefty Blogs but if you want to read what others have to say in Minnesota go to Blognetnews/Minnesota for a line up of left, right and everything else on the blogosphere.

Check the blogroll to the right for others that I frequent.

Well, that was fun, but a little labor intensive.

At least at Corner House Comments.

The next seven weeks will see me working full time on GOTV (get out the vote) efforts on behalf of Labor in Minnesota. In the interest of disclosure, this is a paid position. I have taken a leave of absence from my regular Union (UFCW)  job as a forklift operator at JBS Swift in Worthington.

My posts may be infrequent (nothing new there), and of course the opinions expressed by me (CHC) are mine and do not represent the official views of the AFL-CIO or Change To Win organizations. I do not get paid to maintain this blog.

Peace & solidarity,

If you say so John. I guess I am one of the American workers that McCain is talking about. Does that make me a Fundamentalist?? 

Anyway, here is a short video essay I put together.

Does this disqualify her as a potential McCain running mate?
