Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
From an e-mail Melissa just sent me. Formatting, and contraction of 'it is' to "it's" is mine:


FAT TUESDAY

After all, it's a big
day. Dogs snoring, sink dripping
Cupboards must be bare.

So, if you're in a Super Tuesday State -- VOTE MOTHERFUCKERS!

And if you care what I think, VOTE OBAMA.

Why?

I don't have any illusions about what a President can do. To a large extent they're the victim of circumstances beyond their control. But I believe Barack Obama is a really intelligent, honest guy whose instincts are to do the right thing. We could do a lot worse than Obama, and we have.

I could live with Hillary, and I think I am mostly on the same page with her in terms of policy. But I don't trust her to try to do the right thing all the time. I think she is so completely a political animal that she'll comprimise in the wrong directions when pushed to the wall. And I really don't want to return to the ongoing disaster that was the Clinton Administration. He did a lot of good things as President, but it was always one morally murky peccadillo after another, and I don't see anything different about Hillary.

Obama claims to have a different idea about how to do things; to find consensus where he can and move things forward. Whether or not he'll succeed and be a great president is anyone's guess -- it's a matter of those unknown unknowns that always gum stuff up. But he at least has a chance.
