Mark the Mechanic

Did anyone else notice Louisville, KY on Obama TV tonight? The brief narrative centered around Mark Dowell, a Ford employee at the automotive company’s Kentucky Truck Plant whose wife Melinda was laid off earlier this year along with hundreds of other Louisville employees.

Featuring rural shots of the city, it was surprising to see considering the people in the 30-minute infomercial were likely chosen based on their residence in important swing states. One thing is for certain, Mr. Dowell, a third generation Ford employee, will be a local celebrity tomorrow morning.

    Mark is my brother in law and I can’t even begin to express how happy it makes me to see the real people of the nation stepping in and getting the chance to tell about their struggles. Make sure you vote no matter who you support! No vote means NO voice!
