I voted for Barack Obama and all I got was this lousy roadkill

In what may have been a ploy to raise millions in campaign cash overnight, yesterday came news that with the words, "I am not the man I once knew," presumptive Democrat presidential nominee (D-IL) Barack Obama is throwing himself under the bus.

The move has stunned Las Vegas bookies making odds on the next Obama bus victim.

"Hey, I don't think that's legal," observed bookmaker Jimmy the Hare. "That's a fix."

“We must form grass-root structures that would hold me and other elected officials more accountable for their actions. The right wing, the Christian right, has done a good job of building these organizations of accountability, much better than the left or progressive forces have.

But it’s always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia. And they also have hijacked the higher moral ground with this language of family values and moral responsibility.”

"America is a country of strong families and strong values. My life's been blessed by both," Obama says in the ad slated to run in 18 states as he tries to win over independents and disaffected Republicans.

"If I have the honor of taking the oath of office as president, it will be with a deep and abiding faith in the country I love."

In its images and in its words, the 60-second commercial that opens Obama's general election campaign seeks to introduce the first-term Illinois senator to voters. It also positions him more toward the center of the electorate by emphasizing universal issues of family and values ...
Speaking of roadkill, Texas Democratic Party Vice Chairwoman Roy LaVerne Brooks had to learn the Obama Way the hard way. Yet it seems the mainstream media just never found time to discuss Ms. Brooks's treatment at the hands of Obama's campaign operatives.
