Wow! Even when I try to be brief, I feel it getting away from here. Let me get to the point- my best friend Ari has started a new blog/art project/political statement.
Here is what he says,
In a personal note he goes on to say,
We only have one month to go. 30 days until the defining election of our generation, our lives. Every vote counts and so does every note. Barack the note. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, email http://barackthenote.blogspot.com/ to everyone you know.
- Grab a scrap of paper and write something down like Obama '08. Then find a public space to place it, paste it, tack it, fold it, stick it.
- Email me a photo of it, and i'll put up on this blog. (His email address is on the blog.)
Yes we can. Yes we can.
will you make a barack note and photo of it.
i know both parties are the same, but i really think john mccain might be worse than bush. bush i think knows he is just a filthy rich businessman who was born into a dynasty...mccain is this war hero cowboy moron who i think really believes in all the lies bush knew were bullshit
i at least think obama represents a change in the white male protestant presidential paradigm...and maybe that might hint at a 14 year old chomsky out there to get elected one day under something called the Education Party.
So there you have it folks. I always love any grassroots DIY campaigns. I am not sure if I will make a Barack note, but I may try my hand at a Nader, Mckinney, or Sheehen note ( I don't care if they haven't a chance of winning. I just want to hear people talk about these things out in the public. Tell Obama to pick a few of these things and I will do more that see you over at barack-thenote.
Good Luck Ari!
