    • UK Seizes Iranian Tanker So Iran Seizes UK Tanker
      That’s the news, basically. Well, Iran also seized a Liberian flagged one one, not sure why (may be operating for a British company.) Also not sure why the UK seized an Iranian tanker in the first place. The UK has said it supports the Iranian nuclear deal, and the US sanctions it was operating based […]

GOTV Day 2: What enthusiasm gap?

cvylzyiueaezkwtI’m not sure what journalists are referring to when they say that there is an enthusiasm problem for Hillary. I’m not seeing it.

I’ve had a lot of canvassers through my house in the last couple of days. My rug will need to be cleaned. Yesterday, a group of three Bernie supporters showed up and have been kicking ass for two days now. They’re coming back tomorrow. Swoon. They say they know that if we win back the Senate, Bernie will become one of the most powerful politicians in country.

Yes, there are a lot of Trump people in this part of the state. But we also have a lot of Democrats and Pittsburgh gave up being a steel town in about 1985. There are only a few mills left. Now, this city is diverse, a center for robotics and transplant medicine. It’s a shame that some people got left behind. It’s not their fault. But that doesn’t mean that Pittsburgh has been meh about Hillary.

Ok, a volunteer just returned with a flyer from Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance AFL-CIO that was left at a house he was canvassing. That’s weird. I keep picturing factory workers in American Samoa. It’s a long way to come for GOTV but yeah, Go American Samoa. (Someone from AFL- CIO should correct me on this.)

Yesterday, I was following a canvasser from Planned Parenthood. It was along a long stretch of curvy road with no sidewalk. At dusk. I love Hillary but not enough to die for a turf. But the Planned Parenthood canvasser was leaving pink doorhangers ahead of me so I had to leave Hillary Election Alert stickies. Damn the intrepid PP girl. It’s the competition that will kill me.

Volunteers are bringing a lot of snacks. I’ve eaten too much. And I have a tower of bottled water. I get up at 6am and work without a break until about 9:30pm. I can’t stay up past 9:30pm. I’m sorry, I just can’t.

I learned about Comey’s statement today after it had been out for an hour. It’s so unlike me to be the last to know.

Please let this campaign be over soon.

Canvassing today

North side of Pittsburgh. Honk if you see me. Forgot my water bottle. Dying of thirst.

I have a widely spread out canvass area. It has seen better days. But this neighborhood is in a great location. So it’s only a matter of time before the hipsters move in.

The wilderness seems to be reclaiming its own like the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. No Trump signs here so  guessing the zombies have moved on. 😉

Hold the fort and don’t have any wild parties without me.
