All weekend I've been volunteering time for the local Oakland Call for Change phone banking effort sponsored and managed by MoveOn.org. What I've seen so far is a brilliant experiment in managed chaos, as the volunteers take shifts calling other callers to get them to commit and then confirm their commitment to call from home using the awesome web interface or go to house parties to make their calls in a more social setting.
What is the organizing principle of the party? Social justice? Economic fairness? Liberty? Peace? I'm not sure we'd all agree.
Please drop by and comment if you've got the time and want to look at the day's news from a slightly different frame from your usual news site.
I think this is telling. We know we aren't swinging this election but we are all fired up to be counted. In a day of anecdotal evidence about voter turnout, I thought I'd add my two cents here.
Let's win this for Kerry.
Apologies if this has already been diaried here. I didn't see it in the recent or recommended diaries and I think it's worth reading and discussing, either (or both) here or at the PDF site (which requires free registration, as it runs on Drupal).
Did you know Cheney voted to starve old people and keep Nelson Mandela imprisoned?
Have it once again. It's still a simple question, right?
At the time there was rampant speculation, based partly on the presence of ex-Gephardt and ex-Kerry staffers at the nonprofit entity running the ads.
Has anyone done the legwork to track this down? Now that Gephardt has embraced Kerry, if those two really were behind the ad, I'd like to see that info come out. If not, it would be good to clear the air.
