Obama Supporters: Tell AP Papers to Stop Smearing Obama’s Patriotism
I know this article was written a few weeks ago however, this website makes it easy for us to protest AP's partisan hack Nedra Picklers article smearing Obama's patriotism and whos articles constantly smear democrats in general. If you look at her wiki page, you'll see what I mean. It took me 1 minute to send the letters b/c they use this tool that automatically does it for you. So far 15,000 people have done this. Lets try to put a stop to the wingnut attack machine.

"After AP reporter Nedra Pickler wrote a news story highlighting how some fringe Republican operatives were raising questions about Sen. Barack Obama's patriotism, angry readers dispatched nearly 15,000 electronic letters protesting the piece. Why? Because instead of providing balance and context, which is what good journalism does, the article simply offered a platform for Obama's opponents to roll out their smears, to broadcast their dark doubts about the senator's character."

2. Other than belonging to "A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA" what patriotic
deeds has BO performed that are significant?

Does chanting "Hope, Change" qualify?
