What a year itâ€™s been! As the fall turns to winter (except that itâ€™s still 70 degrees?!?!) and the madness that was Election 2006 subsides, we here at DoubleSpeak wanted to take a minute to thank you for your support, hard-work and dedication over the past year. There is no doubt that 2006 is a year none of us will ever forget.
After traveling to over 20 states in 50 days, we were all in need of some time to reconnect with family and tend to our â€œday jobs.â€ While we miss living out of a 1999 Toyota Sienna minivan, it is very good to be home.
We are incredibly proud of what DoubleSpeak accomplished in such a short amount of time. Thousands of activists downloaded the show, we appeared on numerous radio stations across the country talking progressive politics and grassroots activism, and we interviewed dozens of high-profile candidates for office all over the country. And, while doing our part to help America we had the time of our lives traveling as brothers-in-arms to help secure a sweeping Democratic victory.
While things have been slow on the website since the Election, we plan to hit the ground running in 2007 with a new look, new features, and video! We will continue to bring you quality interviews with decision makers and party leaders both inside and outside of Washington, D.C. Of course, weâ€™ll also begin our coverage of the 2008 election, which is already heating up!
We had a fantastic year. We owe all of our listeners a debt of gratitude. Thank you for taking the time to listen and to share your ideas and your pennies as we look forward to continuing this journey with you in the New Year.
Finally, we want to dedicate the work weâ€™ve done over the past year to our good friend Mike W. who is serving in Iraq. Mike is doing a hell of a job out there and we hope to have him back on American soil soon. We love and miss you, buddy.
See you down the road a bit,
