get to work you lazy fuckers… please

The latest polls still show Bush up by 1% in Michigan and we’ve got a 50% chance of rain tomorrow. That means we need to get out today and tomorrow and bust our asses. If you haven’t done it already, get tomorrow off from work and walk your neighborhoods, urging Kerry supporters to vote, offering rides, doing whatever it takes. And call your friends and family in swing states and remind them how important it is that they vote. If you know a young voter, send them Eminem’s video for Mosh. If you know a conservative voter, send them the editorial from the American Conservative. If you know someone who loves porn, send them to this article at LarryFlynt.com. I could go on and on, but I’ve still got calls to make… The important thing is that you just do something.

And, if you still haven’t decided to support John Kerry, consider this passage taken from his last letter to me:

This election is a choice between four more years of tax giveaways for millionaires along with a higher tax burden for you — or a president who will cut middle-class taxes, raise the minimum wage, and make sure we guarantee women an equal day’s pay for an equal day’s work.

Tomorrow, America faces a choice between four more years of an energy policy for big oil, of big oil, and by big oil — or a president who finally makes America independent of Mideast oil in ten years. A choice between George Bush’s policy that just yesterday showed record profits for oil companies and record gas prices for American consumers. I believe that America should rely on our own ingenuity and innovation, not the Saudi Royal family.

Tomorrow this campaign will end. The election will be in your hands. If you believe we need a fresh start in Iraq; if you believe we can create and keep good jobs here in America; if you believe we need to get health care costs under control; if you believe in the promise of stem cell research; if you believe our deficits are too high and we’re too dependent on Mideast oil then I ask you to join me and together we’ll change America.

    I think that was a Zogby poll. While not definitive, his polls have traditionally been the closest at predicting actual outcomes. Of course, Kerry could still win Michigan in a landslide – nothing’s set in stone. It just means we have to work a little harder to drag people out in the rain.

    I read that the Zogby poll had Kerry up by 6 or 7 points in Michigan yesterday.

    Let me look into it. The last one I saw was a few days ago and it had Bush up by two. I got this 1% number form another reader and I thought that it was Zogby too (indicating that Kerry was narrowing the gap a bit). Maybe it was from another firm though.

    Brian, I haven’t found yet where the 1% came from, but the most recent Zogby numbers I can find (from 10/31) show Kerry up by 7% in Michigan. Who knows what to make of these numbers though. Last week they showed him down by 2%… The important thing is that we all vote and that we all bust our asses to get other people to the polls who want Bush out of office.
