Things that are amazing


These ground campaigns do not bear any relationship to one another. One side has something in the neighborhood of five million volunteers all assigned to very clear and specific pieces of the operation, and the other seems to have something like a thousand volunteers scattered throughout the country. Jon Tester's 2006 Senate race in Montana had more volunteers -- by a mile -- than John McCain's 2006 presidential campaign.

--This left me wondering how on earth the election McCain could even be winning any all. Five million VOTERS would be enough to get elected in most countries. Mark Twain once wrote that fiction is bound to the realm of possibility. Reality is not. This election defiantly applies.
