Community Organizer

A potter friend of mine put the following quip on a pottery related e-list today. I think it is a good example of just how badly some twist words to mean what they want them to.
Jesus was a community organizer.
Pontius Pilate was a Governor.
Now Lee Love used to be a Green so I guess I can quote him here.

Wes,

I am still a Green. But I think the Green Party is pretty ineffective. We need to rethink our politics. We can learn from the Religous Right: Organize Green, and then infiltrate the Democrats in Green Caucuses. Nature is our church meeting place.

On the local level we can run as Green Party candidates. Even in the congress and the Senate, we can learn from how Barry Sanders did it. But for the President, there are only two choices, until things are changed to allow 3rd parties a chance.
