Last night, like millions of Americans, I watched Gov. Palin's acceptance speech. The Vice Presidential candidate's dismissed the impact of community organizers and organizing has had in America. So, I decided to provide Gov. Palin and the rest of the Republican Party a list of 13 community organizers who changed the world.

  1. Josiah Bartlett

  2. John Adams

  3. Stephen Hopkins

  4. Roger Sherman

  5. William Floyd

  6. Richard Stockton

  7. Benjamin Franklin

  8. George Read

  9. Samuel Chase

  10. Thomas Jefferson

  11. William Hooper

  12. Edward Rutledge

  13. Button Gwinnett

And one more for good measure, John Hancock. Just community organizers started a revolution!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.
