Happy Birthday Granny D!


Granny D, otherwise known as Doris Haddock, celebrates her 96th birthday today. Wish her the best at http://grannyd.com/

At the age of 90 she walked across the country to raise awareness for campaign finance reform and last year ran for Senate in New Hampshire.

She was the third person to write me to say she'd put up her first freewayblog: two arrows pointing in different directions reading "Bush" and "Truth". She was 93 at the time.

Despite her sweet demeanor and novel persona, she is by no means someone to be discounted as a novelty act. Her speeches and writings are some of the sharpest and most eloquent of our time, and her dedication to the spirit and principles that founded this nation put the self-proclaimed "patriots" in our government and media to shame. Happy Birthday Granny.

Be sure to check out her own Do It Yourself Impeachment site http://tarandfeathers.org

Good luck!
Seen on a sign in an anti-Iraq war march in Vancouver, BC: "Bush-Blair: the Asses of Evil". Also "CNN: weapon of mass distraction".
