Wow! What an acceptance speech! I have to say that over the past few days I have heard some fantastic speeches – and last night Barack Obama’s speech was awesome. If you weren’t moved by his speech and if you didn’t feel more hopeful about the future then you’re either dead or have an ice cube as your heart.
Then I read in the paper this morning that Gov Crist has appointed Charles T. Canady as a Florida Supreme Court justice. Canady was Jeb Bush’s top legal counsel and Dennis Baxley, the president of the Christian Coalition of Florida, praised the appointment. When Dennis Baxley praises anything you better watch out because it ain’t good.
No wonder we sometimes feel powerless and frustrated – we need Barack Obama to take back America from these right wing nuts – si se puede – yes we can!
