The news out here in CA is the hacking of the No on 8 website. It seems there was a coordinated attack on the site and Florida's No on 2 site.
I've heard over and over again, it's so hard to be good. Why can't we deploy these scummy tactics? Why don't we hack their websites? Create outrageous lies in our ads to scare people into voting our way?
Because we see ourselves as the good guys. We can't stoop that low. I know that's right but sometimes, I get so frustrated. I just want to win.
We won't. Of course we won't. We're not willing to give up our ideals, our morals, our beliefs. Someone should remind the Log Cabin Republicans of that.
I'm going out to a women's event in Oakland today.
Senator Barbara Boxer and Congresswoman Barbara Lee will kick off "Women's No on 8 BYOCell - Cell Phone Call to Action," aimed at rallying Democratic women to actively work to defeat Prop 8. Senator Boxer, Congresswoman Lee, Assemblywoman Loni Hancock, and Women's Foundation of California Chair Elmy Bermejo will hold a press conference at Everett & Jones Barbecue in Oakland as volunteers call women voters to urge them to go to the polls on November 4th and cast their ballots against Prop 8.
Come if you can. Look for me- I'll have on a Mass Equality button. I'll buy you a beer to go with that barbecue.
We'll do what we do best- call, ask, plead our case. Gather together to remember, if nothing else, that this is the right thing to do.
And the right way to do it.
