” And, the very least we can do is make sure that if the issue of politics comes up in our daily lives that we unequivocally say out loud that we support Kerry and think he’s a good man even as we make our case against Bush. [. . .] Kerry’s working his ass off on our behalf to take down little Junior. We owe him some respect for that and we need to help him make that affirmative case for change.
Here’s a little idea for a personal political project that each of us can undertake. Surely, we all know one person who doesn’t usually vote, an apolitical type who isn’t interested. This country is crawling with them. This is the election to get them registered and make sure they vote, whether by sending them the link for an absentee ballot or offering to pick them up and take them to the polls on election day. Everybody knows somebody like this. If we all make sure that we each get one person to vote who wouldn’t otherwise give a damn, we win.
So, think about it. Which of your slacker friends can you get to vote this year? Take the initiative. They won’t mind. They don’t care. Make that work for us.”
