I know scary - Stephen King:
A special Halloween request from author Stephen King:

Dear MoveOn member,

If I know anything, I know scary. And giving this president and this out-of-control Congress two more years to screw up our future is downright terrifying. Thankfully, this national nightmare is one we can end withliterallya wake up call.

My friends at MoveOn.org Political Action are organizing a big round of national phone parties this weekend before Halloween, Oct. 28th & 29th. We'll be calling progressive folks in key districts who may not turn out unless they get a friendly reminder or two.

And since it's almost Halloween, we'll celebrate with an optional costume contest, some pumpkin carving (I'll be making a Jack-Abramoff-O'-Lantern) andof courseplenty of candy.

Please click the link below to R.S.V.P. for the nearest party, or to sign up to host your own:

If you're concerned about the future of this country, this is the time to get involved. The polls are telling us that this November is our best shot in over a decade to turn things around, and we've got to make the most of it.

You might wonder if these reminder calls to voters actually help. I did, too. It turns out MoveOn tested this whole Call for Change program on some early elections this year, and it produced the biggest increase in actual votes of any volunteer phone bank ever studied.

The failure in Iraq and the recent string of scandals have put a bunch of new districts into play. That means there are more voters to call than anyone planned, and every call we make at a party this weekend will reach a key voter who otherwise would have been missed.

Come November 8th, we're all going to kick ourselves if we ignored any close races and then lost the majority in Congress by a hair. These parties are our chance to make sure that doesn't happen.

Can you help end our national nightmare this Halloween weekend? Sign up to attend or host a local Call for Change Halloween party this weekend:

Thanks,

Stephen King

6. I invited Stephen King to Gmail once...
That time that Paris Hilton's phone was hacked and her contacts plastered all over the Internet :)

8. Hallowe'en parties are a great idea. Now is the time
to close the deal. We've got abundant supporters; just need to seal it with a vote.

9. An optional costume contest...
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 03:00 PM by Jed Dilligan
nowhere near as much fun as a costume-optional contest.


Way to go, Stephen King, and fuck all those snobs who say you aren't literature--you are one of the best living American writers.

edit: typo
