This Is A Platform?

Abby Zimet

In her first TV ad,
Tea Party darling Christine O'Donnell betters Nixon's "I'm not a crook"
and displays her multiple legislative gifts by assuring us right off
the bat, "I'm not a witch." She concedes, "None of us are (sic) perfect"
and slams vague "backroom deals" before smilingly confiding, "I'm you."
Umm, not. Nope. Our political discourse has become Saturday
Night Live material. Good grief. 

"I'll go to Washington and do what you'd do." - O'Donnell


This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
