Taking Back Hopeandchange via NY, VA and NJ
(excerpted from my latest at iowntheworld.com)
Wow, I guess a lot of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey are totally Racist and want Obama to fail. Either that, or it’s no big whoop. That will be the spin, even though any of the wins are a smack-down — especially Christie’s win in New Jersey. As a Jersey broad, born and raised, I know how hard it is for a Republican to win in New Jersey under normal circumstances (not even counting all the dead people who vote there.)
In actuality, I believe it is because “regular” people, those never before politically engaged, ARE getting engaged now. It is why I believe that this IS Our Moment, or at least the start of one. It is not certain that it is a sure sign of things to come in 2010, but I would like to believe that it is more than a hopeful glimpse.
