ObamaNation! #4

  • Obama campaign workers angry over unpaid wages: Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. The line was long and the crowd was angry at times.

  • Ralph Nader asks if Barack Obama will be an Uncle Tom

  • President-elect Barack Obama selected hard-charging Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel as White House chief of staff. Rahm Emanuel is a very hard-core Democrat who does not like reaching across the aisle. Looks like the "bipartisanship" Obama and Pelosi have been bragging about just took a 4-year vacation.

  • It is estimated by exit polls that John McCain got 27% of the gay vote. By comparison George W Bush got 23% of the gay vote in 2004. (Most reports are inaccurately reporting W got 19% or 20% in 2004.)

  • 'Impeach Obama' groups pop up on Facebook! I'll think I'll wait until after the swearing-in ceremony.

  • Anti-gay marriage amendments won in Florida, Arizona, and California. Of course the gay community in California are taking it like adults, hundreds protesting in the streets of Los Angeles and San Francisco, vowing to take Prop 8 back to the Calirfornia Supreme Court again. We need a country where the judiciary creates the laws?
