Now, Dear DUers, How was that. (Schilling Bows Out)

To all of you folks who criticized me yesterday, our Union efforts here in Mass may have had some affect on Shilling's decision to "Bow Out" of his joint appearance with President Asshole.

You see, his commercial endorsements as well as his charity are all centered where it will have the greatest affect, here in New England. Well, outside of NH, we are all deep blue, and NH is pale blue.

We instantly had the AFL-CIO, as well as a rash of local unions complain about Curt's actions. This was not coordinated with the Kerry campaign, thereby leaving no downside to them. We did this on our own.

Even though DUers, like Will_Pitt tried to undermine our efforts, we accomplished our goal of not having a photo-op for Bush with Schilling, and now Bush will travel to NH for nothing, and there will be a disappointed crowd in Portsmouth.

I don't know if what we did was the reason Curt changed his mind. I have a felling his wife may have convinced him that their effort's to help others in this region would be hurt by his appearing with President Asshole. We may never know the exact reason, but those of you who E-mailed Curt, or called Dunkin' Donuts to complain may have helped change his mind.

To you folks, the Union workers in Massachusetts say thanks. This will turn out to be bad news for Bush in NH, in a day of all bad news for the Asshole in the White House.

God Bless all here at DU.
