BlueAmerica - Charlie Brown - CA-04 (Video Later Tonight)

My apologies for my absence. It was unavoidable. I had to wrap up some family stuff and get healthy after catching my first big sinus infection/head cold in well over a decade. (I knew there was a reason I lived in Hawaii so long - No Winters!) I have finally converted my new computer system and I should be able to compile a good video update tonight and then I'll hopefully be able to do one a day until Election Day. Until tonight, I wanted to link you to two very telling articles from the past two days.
During the debate between John Doolittle and Charlie Brown, the cowardly, petulant, draft-dodging John Doolittle had the nerve to tell Charlie Brown, a Vietnam combat veteran rescue pilot who served in two wars during his 26 years in the USAF that people like Charlie and Jane Fonda and Cindy Sheehan are the reason we lost the war in Vietnam and the reason we're losing in Iraq. He then went on to try and explain his own draft-dodging
and talked about how his own belief in Armageddon guides his Middle East policy voting. To Charlie's credit, he hasn't beaten Doolittle over the head about his lack of service and draft-dodging until Doolittle's campaign recently had the nerve to question Charlie's patriotism in a recent press release. Read Charlie's response: ABC News: Calif. Vet Slams GOP Congressional Foe
In my last video broadcast I also told you about the Townhall Meeting I attended with Charlie Brown and former Sen. Max Cleland at the Lincoln Veterans Hall in Lincoln, CA. Here is a letter to the editor from a mother in Lincoln, CA who heard about the event and decided to bring her 18 year old son and 12 year old daughter to hear what Charlie and the Senator had to say. Read her experience with the John Doolittle "supporters" who were standing out front. Lincoln News Messenger : Letters
. Absolutely despicable! What morally bankrupt cowards...
I have a lot of work to do for the final week-long push. I will hopefully bring you an interview with campaign staff members and perhaps Charlie himself this week. In the meantime, I'm going to get to work on my new video update tonight. Sorry again for the absence. It will hopefully be my last.
