Progressive Democrat Newsletter Issue 196

After a brief break, the Progressive Democrat is back. This week I discuss Sierra Leone, America's Indian Country, and the Taliban as well as continuing my local focus in 16 states where I have solid readership.

LOTS going on, of course, more than I can comment on. The Gaza war, where I have strong sympathies with both sides. The impeachment of a certain disgustingly corrupt Governor of Illinois...impeached, I should add, with the help of his own Democratic Party. THAT is the difference between Dems and Repubs. Democrats WILL impeach one of their own if he is found to be corrupt. Repubs just make excuses for their own corruption and blame the media. Speaking of which, Sarah Palin spent the week whining about how the media was to blame for her losing. Yeah, right. Like her having no clue about much of anything didn't have something to do with it.

Progressive Democrat Newletter Issue 189

Well, we won. Big time.

Obama even won Virginia (which didn't surprise me at all), North Carolina (which I am not TOO surprised at) and Indiana (which DID surprise me). Obama even won one of Nebraska's electoral votes (which get split). Missouri seems to have barely gone McCain. I was convinced Florida would be stolen again, but the Republican Governor of Florida, though a typical Republican otherwise, seems dedicated to fair elections. And Obama wound up getting almost 53% of the vote.

If you are like me and you grew up hearing the refrain, "America isn't ready for a black President," you now will never hear that again. America isn't just ready for one, it OVERWHELMINGLY is ready.
