MoveOn.org has been giving Oklahoma a bit of attention in the past few months, trying to build up their activist “council” in Oklahoma City (the Tulsa council has been fairly well established for a while. A statewide coordinator has been hired, Ali Canada, and local activists like Pat McCauley in Norman have been holding house parties and planning public events (a pro-labor rally at the Capitol on Feb. 26 was one such event).
Moveon.org has come up with a cool tool to get out the vote — videos than contain the viewer’s name as the deadbeat non-voter who caused McCain to win by one. It’s a horror movie come to life, your worst nightmare you can’t wake up from. Not the way you want to get your 15 minutes.
(Okay, if you’re going to get technical, if McCain won by one vote, then another one for Obama would be a tie, then it would go to the House, etc. etc, but let’s have a little suspension of disbelief in the interest of civic participation, shall we?)
Send a cold chill through your liberal/progressive friends (or, if you’re planning to proudly vote for the Republican ticket, get a starring role in your own political epic).
