Quite timely, given today's report in the Washington Post that Obama is siding with the banking industry in opposing "a proposal to give bankruptcy judges new power to modify mortgages for troubled homeowners, an idea that is widely viewed as a bargaining chip..." in the $700 billion bailout plan negotiations. Barney Frank described it as "the primary remaining point of contention between Democrats and Republicans..."
hat tip to John at Progressive Involvement on Obama's latest disappointing stance.

Instead of (in addition to?) us all sending around more emails about how horrible Palin is, let’s all make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin’s name.
And here’s the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name, they’ll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor. Here’s the link to the Planned Parenthood website:
You’ll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the “in Sarah Palin’s honor” card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters, which is:
McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
Arlington , VA 22202
PS make sure you use that link above or choose the pulldown of Donate–Honorary or Memorial Donations, not the regular “Donate Online”
Remember, it's the thought that counts.
