I'm so proud of my mom.

She's out there in Ohio, deep in the Republican suburbs, stumping like crazy for Obama. Listening to local right-wing talk radio finally cracked her. She joined the local Democratic Club, even though, as she pointed out to me, she normally hates joining groups because it means putting up with stupid people. ("It's one of the reasons I've never had a job.") She's been canvassing door-to-door, reminding people about the elections. And today she went to a rally and got hugged by Joe Biden! ("He's a very attractive man. A very attractive man.")

I joke, but it makes me want to do more myself. Dammit, that Obama button I bought off a homeless man is not enough! Who wants to have a debate-watching party on the 26th?

And good lord, everyone, frickin' register to vote. Here's all the info you need.
