1. PA-Sen: Casey is only up by 5% in a Muhlenberg poll

The fact that Ricky is still this close says that we can't become complacent!

2. If you can't canvass, phone bank. Do anything you can.
Deliver yard signs, sign a check, clean up the head quarters, help with the Get Out The Vote effort.


We must not lose.

4. Other polls have the lead bigger
Still, I was glad to see a Casey ad calling out Santorum's ads as a disgrace. People don't like dirty ads, but you can't take them unchecked.

I left the Senate race spot blank last time, but not this time: Casey has to win for us to have a chance of taking back the Senate. I don't agree with Casey on a whole lot, but I absolutely DESPISE Santorum.

3. A lot of us moved away from there -
BUT you know what?? Our family is there and so are our friends.

Lets ALL call them!!

MOSTLY, lets give them MONEY. Alot of it.

We grew up there - it is home for a lot of us.

I'll be GODDAMNED if I see the Ohio river valley go GOP.

Many of us came from there and feel the same about our home.

Many of us are Catholics too, by the way.

S. Brown looks fine to me. Mostly, cause I am sure the bastard looses in PA in any event.

Senate races, only local and state races. I am working on a local initiative and for a candidate for the 88th legislative district. It's hard, my whole body hurts, fatigue is constant, but I feel great.

I sense victory, but there's still nearly a month to go. We can't slack off one bit. Turnout is key. Many minds are made up, we need them to be motivated to vote.

6. I respect this -
But too many of us can't do what you do. HOWEVER - we can do something.

Look I live in LA, it is easy for me to say - but an R next to your name is like poison (Except for old Ahnold) out here.

BUT -

This is not true back east. And many of us are from back east.

It is good to know where the RNC is putting their money - cause that is exactly where we need to put our money.

Thoase of us from the Ohio river valley that left - we need to back Brown. We really do.

Joe

8. I have one lady that is just doing internal
phone banking. That's all she can do. One guy makes sure there are snacks at the office. Sometimes it is the little things.

I think Arnie is going to go with the flow. He's smart enough to step away from the Republican agenda when it becomes a drag on his political future. I still don't like him.

10. We just have to all do what we can do -
It will be plenty Alfredo.

Ol Arnie - he is not on the top of my list for anything, so you know.

15. Yeah.
I know something about him, it was told to me by a body builder that knew him. The person that told me is now dead, so I don't tell it because I can't get permission to speak of something that was said in confidence.

It might be public, I don't know.

9. It's eleven PM here.
I spent the day delivering yard signs, internal phone banking, data entry, and in strategy meetings. Now I am drinking some Knob Creek. I also did some shopping, cleaned off the back deck, and cooked supper.

16. Campaigning is like a drug. It's not admirable, it's an addiction.
We're all adrenaline junkies.

We get our rocks off knocking on your door.

17. BTW, that's a lovely sight. Tonight it tasted so good.
My next bottle will be Eagle Rare.



Both Eagle Rare and Knob Creek are serious Bourbons.

13. Well, we are gonna have to do that.
But it has been a while since we won too much - lets not forget what it does feel like to be winners. And we really are.

So, remember this - the first thing about winning - is you grab on like a bulldog and run the them thru. YOU KNOW - just like we got "run thru" these past years.

I have no pretense about this - cannot possibly equal the indignities brought on to us and our constitution - but it IS a start.

And it is about to happen. Lets remember what to do with it.

Joe

18. Our candidates will not be let off the hook.
They have to work for our continued support.
