Gov. Palin's spiteful dig against Obama's days as a community organizer have -- deservedly -- drawn a lot of heat from a lot of different corners. Jay Smooth has a good video response, but the most badass judo-flip rebuttal comes from John Raskin, founder of the Community Organizers of America:
Community organizers work in neighborhoods that have been hit hardest by the failing economy. The last thing we need is for Republican officials to mock us on television when we’re trying to rebuild the neighborhoods they have destroyed. Maybe if everyone had more houses than they can count, we wouldn’t need community organizers. But I work with people who are getting evicted from their only home. If John McCain and the Republicans understood that, maybe they wouldn’t be so quick to make fun of community organizers like me.
Attention Obama campaign: more like that, please.
