Let’s see, this week, I guess I am the Mob:
Last summer, I was Sarah Palin.
Also last summer, I — along with everyone else — was Georgian (the country, not the state).
Oh, and last autumn I was Joe the Plumber.
Who am I today? I am a typical American. I got where I am through hard work and with the love and support of my family and friends. I am proud of my country and think it’s the best place in the world to live. I am proud of our military men and women who put their lives in danger for us every day. I am proud of my family and my neighbors. I identify with other hard-working people, whether they carry briefcases or wear hardhats.
Today, I am one of a growing number of people who are becoming alarmed at the direction in which this country is headed. I am a part of what was once known as the Silent Majority, but I’m finding my voice now.
Today, and tomorrow, and next week and next year, I am millions of Americans — tens of millions, a hundred million — who are about to take back our country.
Who am I? By myself, I’m nobody. But watch out. You’ll know me when you see me. I’m part of that Mob.
