Hey, what's up? I'm Matt.

Hey! My screen name is unflapped but my real name is Matt. It's cool, call me whatever you want.

I'm a political junkie. I've been a left-wing activist since the 90s. I've knocked on more than 100k American doors and called 100k more. I eat dirt. I roll around in it.

Now I have a new baby and I'm staying at home with her, which limits my ability to stay dirty but not for long. Until then, I'll be hanging out at DU as much as I can.

Oh, and I'm a stand-up comic. I create various works of comedy and I'll post some of the political stuff here, hoping you like it.

Thanks for existing and for having me!

I'm new too only it won't let me make a thread to introduce myself. It says I haven't posted enough.

"I've knocked on more than 100k American doors and called 100k more." Wow.

I've done canvasing about 4 times total. Welcome Newbie!

I just signed up today. I've been reading here since around the holidays.
Quite the primary season this time around. I don't remember it EVER being this crazy!
We all could use some comedy, don't you think?

New babies are the best!! Congratulations!
See you around!
