Let's go out there and win this one for "Toot"

Madelyn Dunham, 1922-2008

This is just so sad, and such a cruel twist of fate, that Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has passed away just hours before voting begins in Dixville Notch. Legacy.com has created a guest book where you can go to extend your condolences.

However complicated Barack Obama's relationship with his grandmother may have been (and who DOESN'T have complicated relationships with their family?), it's clear that she loved her grandson and he loved her back. To lose her today of all days is just heartbreaking.

That of course assumes you have a heart. There are some in this country who do not, like the California Republican Party:
If it wasn't so pitiful, it would be funny. On the day before the election, the California Republican Party has filed a complaint against Barack Obama and his campaign:

Obama for America violated federal law by converting its campaign funds to Senator Obama's personal use. Senator Obama recently traveled to Hawaii to visit his sick grandmother...Therefore, the Obama Campaign violated the FEC's ban on "personal use" of campaign funds when it paid over $100,000 for the Campaign's charter to fly to Hawaii without obtaining reimbursement from Senator Obama.

Comedy. Did John "Thank God My Wife Owns A Jet" McCain, reimburse anyone after he "suspended" his campaign, yet continued to travel? Did he reimburse anyone for the weekend jaunts to his ranch to wait for his cell phone tower? Is this really the road the GOP wants to go down?

I love the smell of desperation in the morning. It smells like...victory.

Let's make "Toot" proud tomorrow.
