  •  God. I lived through that. (12+ / 0-)

    And I don't ever want to go through it again. I remember our local Party finally scratched up enough Democrats to make the GOTV phone calls. There was no energy and no one brought cookies by. We sat there, making the calls to DEMS, and we were hung up on, yelled at, or just nicely told no one was interested. The day of the election was even worse. We resorted to literally begging people to go to the polls. It was, beyond a doubt, the worst political experience of my life. It took quite a few years to pick Dems up off the floor after that.

    They don't win until we give up.
