A Poor Substitute For Live At Five

I had every intention of getting up at the usual ungodly hour this morning and doing Tuesday’s Live At Five, but I underestimated how fatigued I’d be after eight hours of doorknocking for American Majority Action yesterday down in Prince William County. I slept right through the alarm and didn’t get up until 0900. It’s good and necessary work, though; every day this weekend, in spite of the occasionally drippy weather, yours truly and a couple dozen Hill staffers have been out pounding on doors, dropping literature, and otherwise doing our bit to win Virginia for Mitt Romney. This will be going on every weekend until the election, and in fact I’ll be putting in time during the week as well. Of course, we could always use more people, so if you happen to live in Northern Virginia – particularly in Fairfax and Prince William counties – and want to earn a little extra pocket money, drop office manager Chris Smith a line and let him know you’re interested.

    Yes, it is necessary work and we’re glad you’re out there doing it. Be careful out there: there are any number of Obama supporters still in the area – Lord knows what you could catch from them.

    Saving the world is more important than live at five.

    And “saving the world” is no exaggeration either.

    Most of them have actually been fairly polite, to be honest.

    What everyone has said. We’ll manage. You’re doing the Lord’s Work.

    Hey Bob. Can you try to keep it down while sucking on the Lord’s cock more? Slurp slurp slurp.

    A person can live on bread and water for a while but living without enough sleep is a prescription for sub-optimal operation.

    Hey Failure, I mean Wombat. Hope your Type 2 is not being paid for by my tax dollars.
