What I Learned from Knocking on Doors Today [someone]

(1) There are still undecideds out there.

While the polls keep talking about them, I found this hard to believe until I actually talked to some real live examples. And these are people who may well vote... They just don't know for whom. McCain can still gain even more ground before November 4.

(2) There are some really well-informed folks, too.

Heck, they probably read this blog. Not as many of these as the undecideds, though -- probably because in this election, you absolutely CANNOT be well-informed without internet access, and following the thing via MSM will leave you in a confused haze. Maybe about 70% of Obama-destroying arguments won't even have reached the latter folks' ears, and we certainly don't have time to explain them all during GOTV.

(3) GOTV could use more bodies.

If you haven't volunteered to knock on doors or make phone calls, why not? Your local Victory Office can likely accomodate you on pretty much no notice at all. Call in and show up tomorrow after church, or just make calls through the McCain site's phone bank. And do it again next weekend.

Seriously, are you going to spend this election haplessly wringing your hands on the internet like a certain Beta Male Blogger? Don't be ridiculous. As John Connor says, the future has not been written.
