You read this blog, presumably, so you already know that I’m a misanthropic agoraphobe. I don’t like calling strangers to tell them to vote and I certainly don’t like knocking on strangers’ doors and telling them who to vote for.
But I did some phone-banking last night for a nearby Democratic Congressman, Dan Maffei, who is facing a challenge from a teahadist (I think Maffei will crush her, but who knows in this environment). You can do this, too, as unpleasant as it is.
The people in the Peter Daou/FDL wing of the blogosphere are often very good about doing all this shit, to their credit. There’s no reason you can’t be too.
If you’re in or near a competitive district or state, then get up, get into it, get involved, like the man says.
