  •  I've started tuning out Maddow's show (5+ / 0-)

    If she wants to be pessimistic, fine, but she needs to back up her hand-wringing with actual facts.  Early voting is a case in point.  The numbers have been record-breaking everwhere, and this is one of a long string of polls showing Obama to be doing incredibly well with early voters across the country.  Yet if you watch Maddow's show, you'd think that early voting has been a big bust.  

    I volunteer every day at the Obama voter protection hotline for the state of Florida.  We get calls from voters about how they can absentee or early vote, where their voting locations are, the ID they need, stuff like that.  Today I took a call from a man who yelled, "I watched Rachel Maddow's show last night and she said no young people are voting!  Please tell Obama that he has to get the young people out to vote or we're going to lose!"  He was almost hysteric.  Not helpful.
