I'm relieved! Barack Obama isn't a socialist. Here's the proof: me wearing an Obama-Biden t-shirt that arrived in the mail yesterday.
(A bonus proof -- that progressives have some smarts: another photo taken with my new MacBook in front of a mirror, which reflected the reflected words back to normal.)
I'd been worrying that the Obama campaign had decided to spread my t-shirt wealth with someone in a lower donation bracket, just as McCain has been saying he'd do with our taxes. Months ago I made a contribution to Obama after I'd gotten an email saying that if I donated now I'd get a "first edition" t-shirt.
My daughter got hers a long time ago. I figured the election would be over by the time mine came. So it was thrilling to open our mailbox and find a squeezable package.
Only problem is, I've inspected every corner of the t-shirt and can't find any mention of "first edition." Guess it won't be the collector's item that I'd hoped for. The label does, however, say "Made in USA" (been a long time since I've seen that on clothing) and sports a United States flag.
This is more proof: that Obama isn't anti-American, as a Republican congresswoman has claimed. Man, I'm getting a lot of mileage out of this t-shirt.
It's been a good week for Obama, as well as for my t-shirt drawer. A judge threw out a ridiculous lawsuit by Philip Berg claiming that Obama isn't an American citizen. I heard Berg being interviewed on a right-wing talk show. He was convinced that the lawsuit was going to give the election to McCain.
So much for that loony plan. Berg could have saved himself some trouble by heading over to FactCheck and reading their take on the He's not a citizen! smear effort.
They've inspected Obama's original birth certificate and have posted photos of it, complete with a close-up of the raised seal testifying to its authenticity. None the less, delusional McCain supporters are still spreading the lie that Obama's birth certificate is missing.
Well, they're entitled to their fantasies. Which includes the notion that Obama is going to lose the election. (McCain has a 3% chance at the moment; even conservative stalwarts are jumping ship.)
No complacency, though! Vote for Obama! Donate to Obama! Volunteer for Obama!
I want to be sure that I get to wear my t-shirt to a victory party on November 4.
