One Week to Go....
It's getting so I can't watch any of our local news channels (Channels 9, 7 or 13) because the negative ads seem almost constant...Even worse...the nasty ads are starting to show up on cable ,CNN, MSNBC, and THE HORROR, THE HORROR IT'S EVEN ON THE WEATHER CHANNEL. I'll never be able to watch Sharon Resultan describe the "west coast weather" again without thinking of Green's nasty little distortion about Doyle. (by the way....Sharon Resulatan's first "gig" as a TV weather person was at WSAU (Channel 7) in Wausau...over 20 years ago) edited at 5:13....blogger "unbuggered" and picture is up....
back to politics......
There's a new poll out from U W Research that confirms what the St Norbert Poll showed last week...Doyle ahead of Green by double digits....MOE +/- 4%. Let's see Green go into full denial spin on this one...
Amy Sue seems to be faring quite well...even among some of my ...ummmmmmm....conservative ...friends...
Interestingly enough, it isn't because of her stance on concealed carry...they just don't like her opponent. Fair warning: this is truly anecedotal evidence and not scientific....Democrats seem to know the difference.
Saw Dave Zein on his flag-desecrating motorcycle on Sunday. My "better half" kept me from doing something stupid (probably for the umpteenth time...I think she really does keep score). He was coming out of an event at the Old Armory. The event? Well duhhhhhhhh....it was a gun show!
Keep up the great work folks...one more week to go.....here's a schedule of events from Dave Wille:
Sunday, November 5 (Rapids only)
We have a "knock and drop" lit drop planned in the city. We have three shifts available (9:45-noon, noon-2p.m., 2p.m.-4p.m.). You can work one, two or all shifts. The event will leave and end from our office at the Mall.
Monday, November 6 and Tuesday, November 7 (Rapids and Marshfield)
Get out the vote phoning will be done at both sites. We currently have three phones at each site. Shifts available on Monday are 10 a.m.-1 p.m., 1 p.m.- 4 p.m., 4 p.m.-7p.m.. Tuesday shifts are 9 a.m.- noon, noon- 3p.m., 2p.m.-6 p.m., 6p.m.-8 p.m.
We also need folks who can bring in cell phones and call using their phone or simply donate their phone for others to use on these two days.
In addition, we need people to work visibility in both cities on Election Day. This would entail standing with a sign at a pre-determined location during a busy time of the day. Also, we need folks to volunteer to bring in food for workers during the final two days.
We all are tremendously optimistic about our party's chances this year, but it's really now or never in terms of volunteering to help make sure our goals are realized on November 7. Please strongly consider volunteering in some way during the final three days. To volunteer you can reply to this e-mail or call me at 384-8764 or in Rapids call Dede at the office at 712-0273
See you soon....work until you drop...vote as if your life depends on it...because...IT DOES!
