Notes on Canvassing, 2008

Filed under: Politics — Chris @ 10:23 pm

It’s often said that Democrats need to work harder to attract rural and suburban voters. As a campaign volunteer, I say: More urban voters. More apartment complexes. More row houses. Fewer front yards. Fewer side fences. Let the rich people with the long driveways figure out when the election is on their own.

I leave you with some wise words from the old people of Northeastern Philadelphia:

  • “I may burn in hell for it, but I think I’ll vote for Obama.”
  • “You keep knocking on my door and calling me by the wrong name! I’m sick of it! I’m not going to vote!”
  • “Be of faith!”
