BREITBART: Obama voters conciliatory
There’s change in the air. And hope smells like pumpkin pie fresh out of the oven.
A week after the Obama victory celebration in Grant Park, some exultant liberal victors are seeking to make Thanksgiving 2008 a joyful all-inclusive family experience for the first time since President Bush took office nearly eight years ago.
No, partisan wall builders Arianna Huffington and Markos Moulitsas are not preparing baked yams and apple pecan stuffing for an all-American buffet. Leftover “Rethuglican” rage will be served at the official Democrat table where Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will toast George Soros for underwriting a hate campaign against Pilgrim in Chief George W. Bush that successfully brought back Democratic Party rule.
Why change what works?
But in an online activist campaign entitled “52 to 48 with Love” some Obama supporters — without preconditions — are trying to reach out to their Republican foes as a “gesture of reconciliation.” In a series of photographs uploaded to the Internet, mostly young faces are seen holding up handwritten signs expressing a solemn “Yes, We Can” message to political enemies.
One 20-something Caucasian girl wearing a tattered tan cap holds up a representative message:
to listen to you
to fight for you
to respect you always.
“Perhaps it is naive. The differences are real, I know,” writes performance artist Ze Frank, whose Web site features the growing photo collection that has begun to go viral. “But we have to repair the damage done from this election cycle somehow.”
The verdict is out on whether Republicans will bite.
