I was there as a member of both groups and loved it when Brian Thompson asked me to stand up and show everyone my shirt.


No Craddick Dems!

Dawnna Dukes did not return the required paper work to be included in the meeting but had spokesperson there. I asked if she would support Craddick again and was told that Dawnna would use the same method she has in the past to decide on who to vote for as the next speaker. I guess that says it all or it does to me. It seems to mean she will sell out her district and Texas Democrats for the likes of Craddick yet again if she is reelected.

good article – “As God Is My Witness”: Obama Snubs Newsom, Gays

http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/02/29/as-god-is-my-witness-obama-snubs-newsom-gays/

What does this have to do with the above endorsements? I voted for Obama since I know Hillary is capable of throwing the GLBT Community under the bus without a backwards glance once she has their money and their votes. I know because I worked on both of Bill’s campaigns.
