Check out this guest entry from Howard Dean’s Blog for America:
Guest Blog from TMB in VT
My name is Tim; you may know me from the blog as TMB in VT. I’ve never been involved in politics, I never cared enough. But today I care, because of Howard Dean. I’m here in the Burlington Headquarters. Man are we busy! It reminds me of a colony of workers ants. We all are going about our individual tasks with a one-minded efficiency. As we pass each other in the halls we smile and nod, then continue on with the knowledge that this is crunch time. Everyone is needed; this is the way a democracy works. Remember the way Dr. Dean ends every Speech:
“The power to change the country is not in my hands, it’s in yours.”
I want you to ask yourselves what are you doing tomorrow. Do you have some time to volunteer? Could you call or talk to someone you may have missed? To people in the primary and caucus states you could call your buddies and make sure they can get down to the polling places and ask them to call their friends too.
It even comes with a photo for you ladies out there. At any rate, all I could think of was this scene from the Breakfast Club:
Bender: Hey, cherry, do you belong to the physics club?
Claire: Thats an academic club.
Claire: So, academic clubs arent the same as other kinds of clubs.
Bender: But the dorks like him, they are. What do you guys do in your club?
Brian: In physics, well, we talk about physics… properties of physics.
Bender: So its sort of social. Demented and sad, but social, right?
I filed this under “General Stupidity” because I don’t have a “Laughably Pathetic” category.
