The conservative media

Posted by Annie on September 5, 2008

Ever feel like you’re the only person noticing the double talk coming from the mouths of Karl Rove, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Dick Morris and the like?  You’re not…John Stewart notices!  This clip shows statements by all of the above and how wildly they change when they’re talking about a Republican candidate or issue.  It’s incredible…sadly it’s something the mainstream “liberal” media would never call them out on. 

You can read an article about this and watch the Daily Show clip here courtesy of the Huffington Post.  Or click here to view the official Comedy Central clip (with commercial).

Don’t forget to vote!

Posted by Annie on February 11, 2008

Tomorrow is Maryland’s primary and for those of us who thought our votes wouldn’t matter after Iowa, New Hampshire, and Super Tuesday, how wrong we were.  Click here for a list of polling places in Harford County or here to the Maryland State Board of Elections to verify that you are registered and determine your polling place by entering your name, zip code, and date of birth.  With apologies to independents who are disenfranchised from this process, please get out and vote tomorrow if you can!

Harford for Hillary

Posted by Annie on February 11, 2008

I haven’t heard any specifics about events for Hillary Clinton in Harford County, but I wanted to pass along a way to get involved in her campaign.  At Maryland Headquarters of Hillary Clnton’s website you can volunteer at the Baltimore phone bank or “Become a local volunteer for Hillary” by filling out a short online form with your contact information and what you are interested in doing.  I would hope that if you do this it would connect you with others involved in the Harford for Hillary movement, as I know that one exists!

Seeking Information!

Posted by Annie on February 1, 2008

As the presidential race has narrowed to two main candidates (sorry Mike), I would like to post information on this blog about groups that I know already exist in Harford County and/or Maryland.  If you are involved in a local group working for either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, please comment here and let us know when your next meeting is.  We can also add it to the calendar.  Thanks!

Obama in Iowa

Posted by Annie on January 4, 2008

Barack Obama has won in the Iowa caucuses, although the Democratic race is far from over.  At this point, returns are mostly in and Obama has received 37% of the vote while John Edwards and Hillary Clinton are very close with 30% and 29% respectively.  While this gives Obama an advantage going into the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries, Edwards and Clinton are by no means out of the race.  On the other hand, Chris Dodd and Joe Biden have both dropped out of the race and more are expected soon.  Welcome to the 2008 election season!
