And if you agree, you should read this e-mail I got forwarded, visit the link, and then go show your local organizer some sweet, sweet love.
Subject: In Defense of Community Organizing
In her acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention, Vice Presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said, “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a `community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.”
Nominally, her words were an assault on Barack Obama’s early career as a community organizer on Chicago’s south side. But the impact reaches farther than that and is a direct affront to the thousands who have dedicated their lives to making America great.
I just signed a petition to tell Governor Palin to apologize for her disparaging remarks about community organizers — I hope you will too.
Please have a look and take action.
