The Rundown

The Morning After

By Ben Pershing
It's now The Morning After, and we are being treated to one last (hopefully) burst of armchair psychoanalysis of the relationship between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- the vanquished and the victor, the secretary and the boss, two foes forced to live together and make it work. It all sounds like a sitcom, except for the part where we're fighting two wars, terrorism is on the march and the country has been in recession for a year.

Back in the non-personality-driven world (scratch that, Sarah Palin is involved), one of two remaining undecided Senate seats will be awarded after today's runoff election in Georgia. Two final surveys of the contest released Monday showed Saxby Chambliss leading Jim Martin by 7 and 4 points, though runoffs and special elections are notoriously difficult to poll because turnout is so uncertain.

Continuing the television theme, the Georgia race has featured more special guest stars than an episode of the Love Boat, with Palin and John McCain, among others, coming in for Chambliss and a host of prominent Democrats (even Ludacris!) working to boost Martin. Notably absent from the scene has been Obama himself -- first prize goes to the reporter who can convincingly reveal why -- though many of his campaign veterans have been on the ground in the Peach State.

Jim Martin lost, no thanks to Obama.

WE HAVE MORE TO DO:

Democrat Jim Martin is in a runoff against Bush Republican Saxby Chambliss for the Senate seat from Georgia. Bush's Saxby Chambliss voted against spending a few measly dollars to provide health care coverage for Georgia, and Americas needy children. But he supported wasting hundreds of billions of your dollars, and the life BLOOD of Americas finest on an unnecessary war in Iraq.

At a time when 47 million of you have no health insurance coverage, and over 100 million of you with insurance are just one major illness away from complete financial destruction. Bush and Saxby Chambliss voted to make the heart break of bankruptcy relief even harder for all of you to use.

You see, Bush and Saxby Chambliss, and his family don't have to worry about their health care coverage. They have the finest health care coverage your tax money can buy for them. Courtesy of you. The American Tax payer. In fact, no one but the super rich can afford the health care coverage you the tax payer provide for Saxby Chambliss, and his family for FREE! with your tax dollars.

He supposedly works for you. But he doesn't think you and your family should have access to the type of taxpayer supported FREE health care that you provide for him, and his loved ones for FREE!. Doesn't that just make you BURRING MAD!

Vote for JIM MARTIN for US senator from Georgia. Vote for JIM Martin who will be on your side. Vote for JIM MARTIN who will work with President Obama and a majority congress for you. Vote for JIM MARTIN most of all for your-self, your family's, friends, and loved ones. Vote for JIM MARTIN for a better America, and a better World.

Don't let Saxby Chambliss make a chump out of you by tricking you into voting against your own best interest. Saxby chambliss is NOT! on your side. He's not one of you. He is on George Bush's side. And we all know what a catastrophe the Bush Chambliss administration has been the past 8 years.

Contact all your family and friends and do every thing you can to see to it that JIM MARTIN and GEORGIANS! take that senate seat back for Georgia, and America. No matter where you live in America. This is important to you. President Obama will need all the help, and power you can give him to try and fix this catastrophic mess that the Corrupt Bush Chambliss administration has created.

As I said before you will have to vote in overwhelming numbers to overcome the Bush Chambliss "Let Them Eat Cake" vote fraud machine. Vote early if you can. Then help everyone you can get to the polls and vote for JIM MARTIN. You and your loved ones don't have to be Saxby Chambliss's victims anymore.

I know you will get it done. Just like you did for President Obama.

God bless all of you
