Some pregnant quotes from Sharpton and Kucinich

S.M. Dixon, at The Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy, with some excellent quotes from the Democratic Convention, and other wondrous finds.

"Mr. President, the reason we are fighting so hard, the reason we took Florida so seriously, is our right to vote wasn't gained because of our age. Our vote was soaked in the blood of martyrs, soaked in the blood of good men, soaked in the blood of four little girls in Birmingham. This vote is sacred to us. This vote can't be bargained away. This vote can't be given away.

"In all due respect, Mr. President, read my lips: Our vote is not for sale."

--Al Sharpton

"The history of social and economic progress in America was written by the Democratic party. Democrats are the party of:
the minimum wage.
The forty hour week.
Time and a half for overtime.
We are the party of the right to organize,
the right to collective bargaining,
the right to strike,
the right to a safe workplace,
the right to a secure retirement.
We are the party of workers' rights,
civil rights, and
women's rights.
We are the party of national health care for senior citizens,
social security,
public education and
rural electrification.

When we show up holding the banner of social and economic justice, we win.

And now must create a new America."

Dennis Kucinich
