Insignificant States For Obama
"Could we possibly have a nominee who hasn’t won any of the significant states — outside of Illinois? That raises some serious questions about Sen. Obama.”
That's right folks, good old 'your votes don't matter' Mark Penn.
Well, frankly I'm pretty damn sick of this line of attack.
At first it struck me as funny. The idea that Penn thought that he could win the nomination by ridiculing those who voted against Hillary. However, the more he and the rest of the campaign have dragged this line of attack out the more infuriating it has become for me.
See, I'm living in Connecticut - one of the irrelevant states. I'm a loyal Democrat who has worked on US Senate, Congressional, State and Mayoral races for the Democratic Party. Therefore, it really pisses me off when somebody tells me that my vote doesn't count.
That's why I am proposing a modest fundraising effort for him. Every Friday from now until April 18th, I'm going to write a diary urging anyone who has been pissed off by the Clinton campaign's line of attack that they don't matter to donate a couple of bucks to this fund.
Got a dollar on ya? From one of the fantastic 30? Please consider throwing it towards our effort.
My fellow irrelevant Dems, there are way more of us, than there are of them and we have the ability to make our voices heard. Just take a look at the list of irrelevant states:
