This account of Republican-leaning voters is pretty amazing:
The next was a woman, late 50s, Democrat but strongly pro-life. Loved B. and H. Clinton, loved Bush in 2000. "Well, I don't know much about this terrorist group Barack used to be in with that Weather guy but I'm sick of paying for health insurance at work and that's why I'm supporting Barack."She thinks he's a terrorist! And still voting for him over McCain!
Just in: White House attempted to influence congressional elections in 2006 by traveling to campaign events with taxpayer dollars. Somehow I'm not surprised.
A CNN account of a guy doing The Great Schlep. Obviously anecdotal but still kinda neat.
Counterinsurgency tactics: running a laundromat in Northern Ireland back in the day. Pretty clever/awesome!
