Oh P.S. Olivia Wilde is in it, too.
We’re entering the last week before the November 2nd election and Tim Kaine, the Democratic Party Chair, is seeing advanced Democratic presence in the states where there is early voting… especially in Nevada… which does not seem to equal the current poll of Independents who are leaning Republican.
The President is crossing the country again making even more campaign support speeches for Democrats and the concern seems to be not with Independents, but to make sure a majority of registered Democrats from the 2008 victory come out to vote.
We seem to be having a large Democratic turnout in the Jefferson County, WV, early voting… including Elly and me… but I know from the past that Jefferson County is more liberal than most of the state and often presents a different result. Hopefully, however, Governor Manchin will take the Senate if people realize what a danger Raese is to the state. WE can hope… the polls are too close.
I encourage all the Democrats out there (and all the Independents who have not been suckered in by the Tea Party/Republican positions and statements) to vote and vote early if possible (in my state you have Early Voting until Thursday.) There is too much left to do to bring the Country back from the 8-year Bush destructiveness. There is no need to dig the hole deeper.

I’ll be glad when the election season is over and the snakes go back under their rocks.
I realize that Colorado is an ugly contest as it is. This just takes it one racist step farther. If I were a Coloradoan, I’d be interested in finding out who put the Billboard up and have their names publicized all over the state. And then I’d ask the Government to move the Air Force Academy to another state.
As of this week it has apparently been taken down after both Democratic and GOP politicians complained (Democrats called it “Racist”, Republicans called it “Silly”… guess which party had the least problem with it.) They still don’t know who put it up.
btw: While it’s unknown who paid for the billboard, the artist is Loma, CO, resident Paul Snover.
“I am not allowed to say who (paid for it) at this time. If it had been me, I would have included the Republicans as part of the problem.”

While you are thinking about voting or not, here’s a fragment of an article in OpEdNews by Mary Shaw:
In coming full circle, we seem to have taken a huge step back. It’s no wonder that so many Democrats are feeling broken and bitter.
And it’s no wonder that so many Democrats are throwing up their hands and threatening to stay home on November 2. No wonder they don’t want to vote for the Democrats they feel have let them down.
But the stakes are too high to sit back and lick our wounds. The stakes are too high to refuse to fight the greater threat.
If the Republican wins the Senate race in Pennsylvania, we in the Keystone State will be represented by Pat Toomey, who is more extremely conservative than Rick Santorum, whom we voted out of office in 2006. According to the ToomeyWatch website, “Toomey’s lifetime score with the American Conservative Union is a stunning 97%, while Santorum’s lifetime score is only 88%.”
If the Republican wins the Senate race in Alaska, we’ll have Joe Miller in Washington, who would vote to repeal the 2010 health care legislation; wants to phase out Social Security and Medicare; believes that evidence of global warming is “dubious at best“; and opposes abortion, even in cases of rape and incest. Also, Miller recently handcuffed a reporter who asked a question he didn’t want to answer.
If the Republican wins the Senate race in Delaware, Christine O’Donnell will be casting her spells from our nation’s capital.
If the Republican wins the Senate race in Nevada, it gets even more weird and worrisome. If Republicans win this election in Nevada, they will be represented by Sharron Angle, who likened Social Security to welfare, and who suggested “Second Amendment remedies” if the elections don’t turn out as the tea partiers would hope.
If the Republicans win enough of the less highly publicized House races throughout this nation, the Democrats could lose its majority on that side of Congress, likely rendering the House as incapable of productive work as the Senate has been in the past two years
