Try watching this and not be moved. Charles is an 86 year old volunteer for the Obama campaign in Boulder, Colorado. In one fell swoop he defines why he has always been a Democrat and why he believes in electing Obama.

I’ve yet to see a McCain ad that emits on one-hundredth of the emotional pull of this simple video, and contrary to what the McCain Campaign and rightwing pundits claim, McCain’s emotional ads are always about why he deserves to be President, never why we will have a better country when he is President.

VIDEO, actual votes flipping, all FROM Obama TO McCain



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
