Twittered Away

The much-hyped social-stalking service Twitter has been a bust when it comes to following candidates. The missives you haven’t been missing:

Obama (5,493 followers)
“In Atlanta: had a great event with Usher and Dominique Wilkins. Fired Up!”

Edwards (3,852 followers)
“Wasn’t Elizabeth great on Larry King last night?”

Thompson (768 followers)
“Going home to Tennessee on Tuesday to see good friends, beautiful hills, and maybe
mamma’s home cooking.”

Paul (351 followers)
“You did it!…We raised over $5 million!”

Biden (91 followers)
“Trying to get Pres. Bush to save troops’ lives in Iraq by deploying more ied-resistant vehicles.”

Dodd (93 followers)
“D-O-D-D. What’s that spell? president!”


It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
