Tsunami Tuesday AM - Making History

Tucson, Arizona. Your humble blogger froze his blogger butt this AM to collect signatures for his Congresswoman and get a pulse on the AM voter turnout. Leading indicators suggest the blue tsunami I forecast and desire. Now, I worked a poll at Wilmot and Speedway, which rests at the upper end of LD 28 and lower end of LD 26. I fruitfully collected signatures and from the addresses could tell I was on Gabrielle's turf. Lots of 2nd Street, 3rd Street, Rosewood, and other blue terrain. Present at the poll: a Barack Obama volunteer greeting voters and handing out stickers, a Barbara LaWall volunteer collecting signatures, and your humble blogger in his Giffords for Congress T-shirt and x4mr certified blogger badge, neither of which anyone saw because it was flipping freezing and both were concealed under my Mt. Everest coat.

What voters did see were the stickers shown prominently placed on said coat.

Democrats turned out in droves, probably four out of five. Even more interesting were the GOP voters that turned up. They did not look happy. Most interesting of all were several Republicans who approached us and confessed, "We can't sign your petitions because we are officially Republicans, but in our hearts we are Republicans no more. You can't have our signature, but you have our vote in November."

The hatred for the Bush administration is universal except for a small number of extremely angry right wingers, one of whom yelled at us when we asked if he was a registered democrat. The guy was young and filled with rage, "NO!! Am I breaking up your union meeting?!"

We said nothing in response. The Obama volunteer, a young, bright African American student at the university, the LaWall volunteer, and I just looked at each other. After the hate-monger left, we asked, "Who is he angry with?"

At least at this poll, both Giffords and Obama have cause to smile. Many of the Democrats eagerly signed the petitions and spoke quite favorably with the Obama volunteer, taking Obama stickers. Still, one could sense some Hillary sentiment.

The 2008 election, like Sunday's Super Bowl, will be one for the history books. The Super Bowl broke all ratings records and provided one of the best games ever seen. The brutal corruption, incompetence, and utter disregard for the welfare of this nation on the part of an evil administration that serves itself and its friends at extraordinary cost in both dollars and blood has brought this nation to the edge of a cliff.

We must nuke the GOP to oblivion. Show them no mercy, for they have none for us. That which is worthy will rise from the ashes.

Giffords is not assurred in cd8. She has to many skeletons in her closet regarding The Tucson Jewish Solar Demonstration Project of 2004 and giving taxpayers money to build that project and money to its founder in the millions of dollars.

Plus awarding its founder the Congressional Award?

Lets get real folks!
