Voter outreach

When I think of really great things that would convince skeptical blue-collar workers to vote for progressive causes, I think of a bunch of celebrities sneeringly saying “don’t vote” with a heavy dose of passive agressivity followed by a switch to coddling “oooooh why don’t you register, snookumpoo?” Then I would include a link to a page that doesn’t exist.

No wait actually that sounds to me like fighting the ‘culture wars’ the way the Poles tried to use horses against tanks.

On the other hand, we do get a cute Natalie Portman saying “everything” (1:54).
