Wanna Help Jim Webb - Just Show Up!

This may be the most important post I write this week. It's not an original piece of writing. There's no analysis of current events. In fact, it's probably the most boring post I've ever done. All I did was cut and paste an announcement and reformat it to make it easier to read. It could have been drudgery except for the fact that it was a labor of love.

All it is is a list of events and activities that you can show up for to help the Webb campaign. And that's what makes it so important. All the words on all the websites in the netroots won't matter without your help going door-to-door to meet and talk with voters. Show up, canvass, be part of the crowd at an event, work a table, pass out campaign literature, phone bank. It all helps.

There's a line from an old West Wing episode - not an exact quote, but it went something like this - "Decisions are made by those who show up."

Here are ways, places, and contacts where you can go to help Jim Webb. So, just show up!
