Since you've started a revolution, and fired us all up..
I'm of the opinion that grassroots should be more "grassrooty.TM"
(Stephen Colbert, eat your heart out.)
Kos, you and Barack are organizers. Some of us unemployed "lunch-pail" Democrats would probably get together in homes or Vegan resturants in the dead of night in say..San-Fran Kaleefornia, or dust in the wind Kansas, given the address.
I'm ready to fight, and open to new ideas. I can't afford a plane-ticket to God knows where in order to be one of the crowd and hang out in the conference-room of Paris Hilton's daddy's dream and ponder our nation's future.
I'm white lunch-bucket Daddy-o. I don't know what to do besides cold-calling and handwritten postcards. I'm not stuck in godforsaken Indiana or North Carolina either. (I did have a girlfriend that ran away to North Carolina and got married but that's another story..)
It would be so damn easy.
Youngstown Kossacks, Reno kossacks, Alleghaney Kossacks, Compton Kossacks..
Color me "silly-season," but this one is for all the marbles.
I can't afford a Prius of a latte, or a plane-ticket, dude. I can't afford gasoline. I can't afford fucking frozen lasagna. An airline ticket and a hotel room? Slack, please cut me some slack. Some of us aren't as smart as you are. Or as well to do." Personally - To hell with home and hearth, I'm ready to go all criminal on you and your ilk and I won't check your political bent or viewpoints prior to making a mess on your sorry "have" as opposed to "have not" asses. I'm proletariot. Undereducated, tired, hungry and chock-full of angst. Voting has been akin to masturbation these past few years. Messy, and in the long-run - futile.
Jesus Christ on a raft! Have you even seen the "Blue Dog so called "Democrat" votes? These people would sell out their mother for a drool/spit or swallow wet cigar.
I'm just betting that there are enough pissed-off Democrats in my home-town that would just love to gather under an Ochre tinted Orange Banner and make the local news. People chock-full of ideas and viewpoints. Ideas on how to "fix" things.
You know - "We The People."
C'mon Kos. You have the microphone, and the keyboard. Hell, you even have the interviews.
Stone-assed impressive work. Awesome actually. "DailyKos" is historic akin the the freaking pyramids. World-Changing.
It's in your blood.
