Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie

This isn't only the land of Sarah Palin's 'Real Americans'. We are all Americans (at least American citizeon who are readers of the blog). We've got two days to help stem the tide. Do whatever you can. Call a friend, urge them to vote, make sure you cast your vote or go to the Organizing for America website hereand give a few hours of your time and help GOTV (get out the vote). Help drive people to the polls on Tuesday.

Read Paul Krugman's op-ed in the NY Times.

This is going to be terrible. In fact, future historians will probably look back at the 2010 election as a catastrophe for America, one that condemned the nation to years of political chaos and economic weakness.

Yes, the Republicans are going to win seats but in the end could come down to a couple of hundred votes in one Congressional seat to determine whether the House of Representatives will be headed by Nancy Pelosi or John Boehner, Wall Street and corporate Amerca's best friend who chose to spend this weekend campaigning for a Tea Party candidate in Ohio who used to spend his weekends playing World War II games dressed in a Nazi SS uniform and who still believes the Nazis were fighting for freedom.

Keep fighting ignorance and apathy.
