Volunteer, chickenhawks

See, Bush recruit a volunteer. I heard
he contributed some cash

Dear Steve,

Grassroots supporters like you are the strength of our Party. It was you who re-elected President Bush, and you who made possible our Republican majorities. The key to making history in these critical midterm elections is simple: volunteers like you going door-to-door, talking to your neighbors, and getting out the vote.

We're now ramping up our 2006 Volunteer program, and we need your help. Will you sign up as a GOP Volunteer in 2006? And will you ask five friends to join you as GOP Volunteers?

The election is still eight months away - but building on the lessons of 2002 and 2004, we are already establishing an aggressive and technologically superior grassroots effort to keep Republicans working for a safer America and put the Democrats on defense in the bluest of the blue states. Recruit five new people to join the GOP Team, and we'll make victory a reality.

The days of campaigns run from the top down from headquarters are over. By volunteering today at, you'll get the tools you need to start building support in your neighborhood, from recruiting 5 of your friends, to correcting biased media through letters to the editor and blogs, to organizing your own parties and campaign events, to many more new volunteer tools we'll be unveiling throughout the year. As a GOP Volunteer, we'll connect you to volunteer opportunities at the local level, in elections that matter to you.

There is no one better to carry the Republican message to your community than you. As Republicans, we can't rely on the mainstream media to get out the truth and we don't have well-funded labor unions and outside groups pouring in millions to fund "grassroots" in the final days of an election. That's why we need you.

With so much at stake in 2006, will you help lay the groundwork for victory by recruiting 5 volunteers?


Black folks better wake up.

This bullshit about having a foot in both camps is fantasy.

The reality is that we have one party which runs on white supremacy and one which doesn't. So trying to join the party which runs on the subjugation of black people is not the way to progress.

I believe Ken Mehlman is honest in his attempt to get black voters. The problem is that he's a man alone. Most of his party is still running against black people. You don't have to love the Dems to know the GOP is dedicated to vilifying blacks and latinos while reaching out for their votes.

Want to know if this is true?

See if they support bills to allow felons to vote in states where they can't.

You know, the kind of voters Rita Cosby thinks the Dems are hunting for. I guess being a cheap Nancy Grace imitator isn't enough. Dressing and looking cheap is extra.

You know, I never thought Nancy Grace could have virtues other than a relentenless pursuit of the "guilty". I guess not hating black people on the spot is another.

As long as middle class blacks pretend the GOP wants them, the longer the attacks on black people will continue. Look at who they run for them: cowards.

Tavis Smiley had his yearly forum yesterday and he invited the negro Republicans. Blackwell accepted and then cancelled, HUD secretary Alphonso Jackson cancelled, while staying in the same hotel as Smiley. Steele turned him down.

Why are they afraid to appear before a room full of black people?
