Please sign up to volunteer at the State Fair booth of the NC Democratic Party! The Fair starts Thursday and runs 11 days. It's a ton of fun to volunteer and talk to voters, and we have lots of slots still available!
Angry about Kavanaugh? Do something about it! Come talk to thousands upon thousands of voters at the NC State Fair!!
Capital Progressive Democrats (CPD) is a new club in Wake County. Yes, there's a Wake County Progressive Democrats club, but they are apparently determined to remain small and insignificant. CPD is going to grow as large as possible, and is going to raise money to help elect progressive candidates. We have bylaws, officers, a P.O. box, a bank account, and we've filed paperwork with the Board of Elections, so we are fully official as a political organization in North Carolina.
Last night at the Wake Democratic Men's Club, Patsy Keever spoke. She asked us all to raise our right hands with fingers splayed out. I think all of us had five fingers. Then she proceeded to teach us "the five Cs":
With three weeks to go ... with the second presidential debate tonight ... with a close race that can be won ...
I've been spending many hours in a couple of neighborhoods off Buffaloe Road near the 540, canvassing the peeps. I think I've spent 18 or so hours walking around, ringing doorbells, and pestering people to get their butts off the couch and go vote early.
I tell them how close the race is, how we can still win if we get our vote out and Rmoney doesn't get his out.
I tell them how we won a razor-thin victory in '08, just 14,000 votes.
I tell them they're now part of my personal Obama Army, and to go find other people and tell them to vote.
I tell them where and when One Stop Early Voting is, and answer any questions they have.
Then I fill out a form for every voter, so OFA HQ can keep up. Three hours at a time, I walk these neighborhoods till my feet hurt and my back hurts and my legs hurt, and I can barely climb back in my car to go turn in my forms. I can't even describe how much fun I'm having.
For a movement which has been the World's Biggest Epic Fail for more than 2 years now, there is much going on among the loathsome Birtherstani pissants ...
Two more birther cases will be dumped by the Supreme Court next month. Orly Taitz is still trying to get her $20,000 back after being sanctioned in federal court in Georgia (though she claims her supporters have already reimbursed her more than half of it), and Phil Berg's Hollister case (sadly no longer involving Phil) has also reached the end of the line. Taitz's case will be denied Jan. 7, and Hollister on Jan. 14 (but we'll have to wait until the following Mondays to read the official orders). In both cases, the government declined to respond and the court didn't request a response, which is the kiss of death in the Supreme Court.
