State Legislators Say Obama is Candidate To Bring Change to Washington D.C.

Highest Ranking Women State Legislators and Legislative Colleagues Speak in Support of Senator Obama

SACRAMENTO – At a press conference on the North Steps of the State Capitol today, state legislators from across California met to discuss their support for Senator Obama and explain why they believe he will be the president to bring change we can believe in to Washington D.C. The highest ranking female state legislators, California Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero and Assembly Majority Leader Karen Bass were joined by their colleagues to urge California Democrats and ‘Decline to State’ voters to support Senator Obama in the February 5 primary.

Barack Obama is the one candidate who can bring Californians and Americans together around an agenda that can help struggling families pay the bills, keep their homes, afford health care, and find good jobs with decent wages,” said Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero. “He is more interested in solving problems than scoring political points, because that’s the only way we’re going to change the divisive, negative politics in Washington and actually make progress on the issues that matter to the American people like the economy and health care.”

“Poll after poll shows that Senator Barack Obama is the most electable Democrat because he can unite Democrats, Independents, and Republicans like no other candidate in this race,” said Assemblyman Ted Lieu. “He'll help Democrats get elected all across the country - especially in conservative areas where Democrats have not fared well for decades. At this defining moment in our history, we need to nominate a candidate who can build the majority necessary to become President.”

State legislators who have officially endorsed Senator Obama include:

Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero (SD24)

Senator Elaine Alquist (SD13)

Senator Gilbert Cedillo (SD22)

Senator Dean Florez (SD16)

Senator Alan Lowenthal (SD27)

Senator Mark Ridley-Thomas (SD26), chair of the Black Caucus

Senator Jack Scott (SD21)

Senator Darrell Steinberg (SD6)

The Skinny on Hillary

Dear brothers in arms,

We put a piece of truth about the Clintons on that would make a difference in the race if people could hear it. It begins:

We are scientists who derive our politics from an evolutionary perspective, not from conservative ideology. Our analysis concludes that our so-called war on terror is slowly but surely taking us to World War III. Note Putin’s 2/8/08 call for a renewed arms race to counter America’s efforts to conquer the world. For that reason we support Barack Obama as the only real anti-war candidate, the only one who can keep such a nuclear tipped train wreck from happening.

As to Hillary Clinton, recall during their populist administration that President Bill and missus, while promising health care they never delivered, did deliver more police and prisons, and took our jail population to the highest per-capita level in the world. This statistic, ahem, is historically associated with hardened police states like Stalinist Russia and apartheid South Africa. We all know that spitting on the street nowadays will get you six months in jail. But of course we’re not a police state, because if we were, you’d have heard about it on the evening news.

The Clintons as president also made their upper class handlers happy by ending LBJs war on poverty, which brought about the vast population of homeless beggars we see on the streets of America today. Pearls for the wealthy, evictions for the rest of us. Don’t laugh. It could happen to you. Wait until the recession, caused primarily by our trillion dollar War in Iraq, gets into high gear. Goodbye nest egg when the market totally collapses. Goodbye home thanks to the Shylock mortgage brokers in bed with the conservatives. Hello suffering on the street with your kids in a foster home.

Actually Hillary does have a few things she can be very proud of. She is a most talented actress, a profoundly adept social climber and a top paid shill of the upper class. She is our American Evita and almost everybody loves her style. But whatever her talents and personal accomplishments, she is not going to go against the wishes of the ruling clique who created her and Bill and stop their war.

Some think that Hillary would never lie to us. But Bill also insisted he would never lie to us and is so amazingly good an actor, almost as good as his wife, that we yet believe him even after the tape recording caught him with the cigar between Monica’s legs. What character is there in a first family when the head of the most powerful nation on earth is sticking a penile object, not even his own, up some college kid’s vagina? Does anybody think Hillary felt personally bad about the Monica thing other than not having her usual go with one of Bill’s girls? Watch the conservatives bring forth one of Hillary’s lovers soon to clarify her tastes in this area. Indeed, one would not be surprised if the less than confident, slightly retarded, persona Chelsea Clinton was condemned to live her life with derives from her pervert parents abusing her when she was four years old. Certainly there is as much truth in this conjecture as in the equally outrageous conjecture that the Clintons are not good people even though they go to church every Sunday. If evil is badness that comes from an unexpected source, the Clintons are evil enough to have shit stuffed in their mouths and be set on fire. That’s an opinion of their character, not a threat on their lives, for all you hate speech monitors out there.

Unfortunately, though, short of a revolution, we may be stuck with another Clinton figurehead presidency, for our evolutionary analysis shows clearly that while biological evolution is not of intelligent design, our presidential elections are. They are intelligently designed by the conservative ruling clique that has hold of our media and our courts, including our Supreme Court, which designed the last election outcome. Which all of you meekly accepted because the majority of Americans are basically passive cowards who lack the courage it takes to stand up to tyranny. The upper classes would never allow Obama to become president and stop the war. They would assassinate him first, literally have him shot like Martin Luther King, if the media they control can’t derail his candidacy in a more subtle way. We reach these outrageous conclusions, not from bipolar disease, but from a firm scientific analysis whose details follow after we have introduced ourselves.

Yours in the struggle,
Dr. and Mrs. Peter V. Calabria
