I made calls for Moveon.org…

Okay, I feel a little dirty (being an anti-war Chomsky reading parecon supporter and all that) but today I joined Moveon.org’s big calling machine and called about twelve numbers, reading a script in support of a democratic candidate I know nothing about, who for all I know has been written about negatively on Znet or Counterpunch (the Webb versus Allen race in Virginia, if you are curious). But I feel a little energized, somewhat like when I’ve done door knocking in the past. It makes me wish we had an extra progressive version of Moveon.org targeting the extra worthwhile candidates. So, my question for U.S. readers: Is this worth doing?
