Not only has this party belittled working people in this campaign, it has also been part of tearing down two female candidates.

Hey Wendy, come on over! We’re glad to have you! We have a common enemy, and his name is BaracKKK Obamanation. God help us if he gets elected.

This is the third of three different posts of articles by highly articulate women, one of them posted by me, that reflect similar defections occurring from the Obama campaign. The biggest difference is this is the first one by a clearly identified author, the other two being anonymous. This article by an identified author, definitely speaking on the basis of her own personal knowledge, gives great credibility to the authenticity of the other two articles.
