I Wish I Could Vote for Matt Burden

This is the best news I have heard in a long time. Matt Burden, of milblog Blackfive fame, is one of my favorite people. He is passionate about his country's future, but is also always thoughtful and reasonable. He is entering a new phase of service now.

For more than 20 years, I've served my country, fighting to protect and preserve the American freedoms, rights, and values that make this country great, first as an Airborne Soldier - and then as one of the leaders of the Internet political revolution that has held arrogant and corrupt leaders accountable from city halls all the way to Washington D.C.

After much thought and one helluva exploratory committee, the green light is on and I'm ready - I have decided to run for office. I will change Illinois' political landscape and culture of corruption. But I can't do it without your help.

Please help Matt. He is one of the good guys. He has shown his commitment to his country time and time again, and soon, hopefully, he will be allowed to show that commitment through service to his congressional district. Matt is asking for a mere $10 to help him in his run. If you can, please send some love his way.

I can loan him an AR15 and two cans of ammo. That would be the fastest and easiest way. Probably not politically correct though.

No problem, guys. Stop by your friendly, neighborhood ACORN office. You'll be able to vote for Matt. Easy peasy, lemon-squeezy.

Lorie Byrd:

Actually it is not a stupid question. I was just assuming it was 2010 so I asked Matt to be sure. He said the primary is February 2nd, 2010, and the election is Nov, 2010. He also said the district is pretty conservative so his main fight will be in the primary so he has 5 months to win.
