Well, around here the fundies pastors have received CD's how to target this group. These CD's are how to get register and proclaim the Lord will guide their judgment and don't mention any candidate, but I assume Huckabee has a dog in this fight.

Those who think that Huckabee will be a easy target don't understand their drive and commitment. Ed Rolins was hired today. Watch out the ball is in play.

2. I bet you half of them don't even know who Condi Rice is or Dick Cheney. The other half?
Hell, those are probably people who would rather vote Green, Libertarian, or are disaffected Republicans/Democrats.

3. In Minnesota they put a wrestler with name recognition
and a constitutional amendment to make hunting and fishing a permanent right on the ballot and a lot of people who had never voted showed up.

10. They also have same day voter registration. You don't have to register ahead of time.

8. That's really not a part of the plan
there's no way these uninformed and passive morons will rise up, if 7 years of Bush-Cheney didn't do it, nothing will.

Rove et al depend on this.
