Politics Make for Strange BedfellowsPosted: November 1, 2008
I’ve been watching some of the links showing up here at my blog and also at The Confluence. Something really STRANGE is going on. The Republicans are abuzz with praises for Pumas. I’m reading blog after blog on the right saying that PUMAS may very well save the country. Check out these links. It will make you a believer in the old saying that politics make strange bedfellows.

To be real honest, I’ve had a feeling that folks have been reading many of our sites for some time. This includes the media. I also know that some of the things that have been discussed here on The Confluence and on other Puma sites have shown up a few days after the topic was completely dissected by the PUMA community. Several times we’ve been accused of passing right wing memes when I swear the points were discussed here prior to being tossed around on right wing blogs and even right wing radio shows.
Several stories broken here (including SimoFish’s posting of the Hillary Fundraiser where Hillary says she thinks that putting her name up for a roll call vote would help her supporters gain closure) and on No Quarter. ( Think ACORN and most of the ACORN threads including the Obama expenditure on “lights, etc” which turned out to be voter-registration related .) These were first discoverd in the PUMA world.
You may feel discouraged and think that we’re not making a difference, but you really shouldn’t. This should tell you that our voices are being heard and that our cause has been well-argued. Now is the time for us to finally decide where to put our final action: OUR VOTE. As for me, I’ve gone into a voting pack with SM77 who lives in the swing state of Florida. I will be voting for Cynthia McKinney for her, here in New Orleans, LA. Louisiana is a red state. She will be casting my vote for John McCain in Florida.
Please, PUMAs, stick to your guns and cast your vote in accordance with our principles. It is up to us to show the DNC that denying one-man one vote to TWO states, stacking primaries so that small states out count large swing sates, and allowing rampant caucus frauds are not behaviors we wish the democratic party to undertake. Let them know that we don’t appreciate them putting a candidate with no accomplishments and a race-baiting, misogynistic campaign to the front of the line. Vote your conscious! Vote like a PUMA! Even the Republicans know that we can make a difference!
