It is a wonderful thing to work the polls, handing out campaign literature for someone you believe in alongside your best friend. I arrived late, the precinct I was scheduled to work at had no area 100 feet away from the polls and still within shouting distance of the public. So, I joined PassingFair at hers. She's a trooper, PassingFair...in her bright red slicker and soggy (okay, I called them grody) literature. I brought an umbrella and we stood next to a Freeper, and a fair amount of people came-in spite of the rain. And we talked to the Freeper, who might have been nice, if his comments weren't so stupid. In fact they were lame...out there, in the rain. "We fight them over there...so we don't have to fight them over here..." I had never heard that, outside of television. A great spot, when a man pulled up-next to us, and the Freeper, and said,"If you meet any Republicans today, tell them to stop using "the party of morals and values...it's bullshit..." The Freeper politely smiled. He wasn't really so bad...if he hadn't been supporting a candidate endorsed by a man convicted in a court of law of being morally bankrupt (re: Jack Brandenburg, State Rep and stalker extraordinaire...) So far it's been well worth it, with a good positive turnout (lots of dem voters). In spite of the rain...and the Freeper, who left early.
