  •  I started phone banking this week (10+ / 0-)

    and it's really fun.  I call Ohio from Brooklyn, and most of the people who answer want to talk, not just get off the phone.  I also tell them where I'm calling from (usually my kitchen) so that they know I'm a volunteer and not paid staff. It seems to level the field somehow.

    It's great and important work, and even when the number's wrong, it's important.  That's one way the campaign knows who to call to GOTV and not waste more time on it.  So - culling the list?  Proud to be doing it, and talking to Obama supporters in other parts of the country is interesting and makes us feel like we're part of something huge.

    Go do it!  You'll have a great time, and get some immediate gratification too.  What could be bad?

    John McCain wants to send women to back alleys. We're not going.
