so what to do about this whole Ukraine business

I think the goal of the US and the international community should be to prevent Russia from strong arming the whole of Ukraine back into Russian satellite status. However, I am not so sure that Russian military muscle flexing is per se unhelpful. There is in fact a majority of ethnic Russians in the Ukrainian east. Maybe the Russian presence can stop them from going Kosova Serb on the ethnic Ukrainians there. I don't know. I despise Putin but this is a complicated situation and it may be completely out of our hands (it certainly is to a large extent). But those who would rattle American sabres and those who are for us doing nothing both ignore the complexities and nuances of this situation.

just spent the afternoon phone banking for Wendy Davis

Purpose is to drum up interest in her candidacy, get voters to the polls for Tuesday's primary and fine tune our county database. Tomorrow I will be hitting the local soccer fields to register hispanic voters and get them into our County GOTV database. As precinct chair my goal is to double the number of raw votes the Democratic candidate got in my precinct in 2010. The Repubs will still win my precinct. But if my work pays off they will win with 55 percent instead of 72 percent. If that same ratio shift happens in every Texas precinct Wendy will win.
