      with the same result.

      Why?  Because people read such diaries passively.  Usually they're being asked for something significant (like money) or for something trivial (like "befriend us on Facebook.")  Diaries that ask people not for money but to put in effort in their spare time -- phonebanking being the best example of this I can think of -- invite people to invest their heart and soul into the race.  We could have drummed up interest.  I've done it reasonably well for candidates who were a much harder sell than Bowen.

      Unplug the Koch machine! It's swallowing people's money!
