No, not of the special election that is bound to take place as soon as John Doolittle resigns in disgrace or is indicted while in office. Charlie has won the Democracy for America Grassroots All-Star selection. He is the first grassroots candidate that DFA is adding to their 2008 (or in Charlie's case likely sooner) grassroots fundraising page. Here is the notice I just received. Normally I wouldn't link to any ActBlue page other than BlueAmerica's as I'm a huge fan and a volunteer team member but in honor of DFA's efforts, today I link to them via Charlie's picture below:

Dear Nate,

Charlie Brown (CA-04)

Jump Start the Campaign
Please Contribute Right Now
Thousands of votes came in from around the country. DFA members pushed hard getting out the vote for all three Grassroots All-Star finalists -- generating incredible support for each campaign. In the end, there can be only one winner.

Lt. Colonel Charlie Brown is your 2007 DFA Grassroots All-Star!

Now it's up to us to back the endorsement up with real action. Please contribute to his campaign right now:

After Charlie Brown came within 3% of winning the district last November, Karl Rove put eight-term Republican incumbent Rep. John Doolittle on his "Priority Defense" list. You can bet that Rove will pull out all the stops to keep this seat for the Republicans in 2008.

However, not all is going well for Republican Doolittle. Since the last election, the FBI raided his personal residence and has stepped up the investigation into his dealings with convicted GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Within a week of the raid, Doolittle stepped down from his position on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.

Ousting Doolittle from this rural California district will not be easy. Charlie Brown will need everything we've got and then some to beat back the GOP machine. Please contribute right now to jump start the campaign:

Last year after you made Jerry McNerney your DFA Grassroots All-Star, you helped lead him to victory against so-called unbeatable Republican incumbent Richard Pombo. Now, if we work together, we will do it again! Victory in 2008 depends on you.

Thank you for everything you do,

Jim Dean

Personally I'm shooting for Victory in 07' after the special election that will follow the inevitable resignation and/or indictment of John Doolittle.

Check out this new video from the DCCC. (Funny how they've grown some balls after the election)

Y'all just knew this one had to bring me back... In honor of California's dirtiest politician (and my rusty blogging skills) I thought I'd keep my post short and sweet. Sort of an homage to the best-of-the-best of John Doolittle's sleaziness.

As I'm sure most of you know, Congressman John Doolittle is the toad in the pot of water who's finally realizing that someone's been turning up the heat on the stove. It turns out that immediately after his former associate and former aide to Jack Abramoff, Kevin Ring abruptly resigned from his lobbying law firm on Friday... John Doolittle and his equally corrupt wife, Julie Doolittle's Virginia home was raided by the FBI.
UPDATE: John Doolittle has resigned his position as Ranking Minority member of the uber-powerful House Appropriations Committee. Of course he terms it "temporarily stepping down" to Boehner but figure the odds of him coming back into that powerful position ever again.
In the next few days this site will get a bunch of traffic from people Google searching for Congressman John Doolittle so I thought I'd make it easy for any of you that want to know all about him and the American Hero who nearly pulled off the impossible by defeating him in the last election, Charlie Brown. Let me provide you a short tour and introduce you to the criminal you folks Googled to get here. A sort of Virtual Walk of Shame through Congressman John Doolittle's low-lights. Let's start with my favorite (mostly cuz I made it) shall we?

John Doolittle supporting forced abortions and sex slavery
Be sure and visit the site it mentions to learn more about this bum.

Who could possibly forget John Doolittle's shameless humiliation at Charlie's hands during the one; closed-forum debate the cowardly Doolittle would agree to. (The first video is a must see compilation that shows John Doolittle for the little weasel he is) the rest of the videos are the entire debate broken into thirteen parts by a patient and patriotic CA-04th constituent.

And then there was the ad that asked the oh-so-relevant question in the news today...

Or how about when the draft-dodging John Doolittle tried to attack the patriotism of his combat-decorated veteran opponent while Charlie Brown's own son was departing on his fourth tour of duty in Iraq

Have you had enough of Congressman John Doolittle yet?

Then let's meet the BlueAmerican Hero who challenged John Doolittle (and came so close to kicking his whiny ass all over this blood-red district)

And in case you're wondering... Charlie's "Back in the Fight" again!

If you really want to know what kind of person Charlie Brown is (in case the decorated, patriotic, heroic life of service to our country didn't tip you off), then watch as he sits down at a kitchen table at 10pm on the Saturday night before the election, sparing some time from his family and friends, while his daughter (home for the week from college), his son (home visiting prior to departing for his fourth tour as a med-evac pilot in Iraq) his lovely wife Jan and Major Paul Hackett of Ohio sat and talked story by the fire in the next room, gave an audience for a video blog interview to yours truly. I remember the night well, not just because of the company but also because it was my birthday. Sorry for sucking so bad as an interviewer.

Charlie Brown is back and ready to step up and represent this great district. Doolittle is going down and down hard. Charlie is a hero and needs your help now. Go show a patriot your support for true leadership and character. BlueAmerica08!

And if you can spare a little more, help out at my PayPal button at the top right of this page. Help me make rent this month (which I don't have) and I'll get back all over John Doolittle's ass. I'll also help remind everyone who Charlie Brown is and what he's made of so we can raise him some money for the special election after Doolittle's inevitable Indictment or Resignation... Or hopefully both!
