Yo! Props to Jay Smooth from the hip-hop video blog Ill Doctrine for this chill clip. In fact, community organizers have been - well, organizing - since the Republican National Committee dumped on us Wednesday night with not one, not two, but three slams against Barack Obama's early career choice. Here are some of the best reactions, other than the one above:
Community Organizers Fight Back - the website
We Are All Community Organizers - one of several Facebook groups taking it to Palin
Obama's reaction yesterday
This excellent diary at dKos, in which the author asks whether the GOP's coordinated attacks were coded, racist propaganda.
So, are you thinking you might like to do some organizing of your own this weekend? Here are some ideas:
The LaRocco for Senate campaign is opening its seventh statewide office in Coeur d'Alene from 6 to 8 Pacific tonight. Stop by 408 Sherman Avenue if you're in CdA or nearby. Larry also did a short interview with HBO this afternoon.
A big canvass is planned Saturday morning for Ada County Commissioner candidates Dave Langhorst and Paul Woods. It starts at 9:30 a.m., with a meeting at 12451 W. Abram Dr., Boise, off Cloverdale Road. Contact T.J. Thomson you're interested in helping, contact District 20 chair T.J. Thomson at 559-6010 if you can help.
District 19 door-knocking happens every Sunday (4:15 p.m.), Monday (5:15 p.m.), and Wednesday (5:15 p.m.) Meet at Parilla Grill on 13th Street in Hyde Park.
Idaho for Obama will be registering voters at Art in the Park on Saturday. Click the link for info. Also, Women for Obama are phone banking every Tuesday at state HQ (9th and Jefferson, downtown Boise). Contact chryssa_marie at yahoo dot com if you'd like to help.
More money than time? Congratulations! You can help by donating via ActBlue to a host of Idaho Democratic candidates and causes, including the Idaho Democratic Party and the county parties in Ada, Bonneville, Canyon, Latah, and Twin Falls (all accessible on this page). You can give once or make a monthly pledge. Watch Red State Rebels for a one-stop shopping ActBlue page coming soon to a blog near you.
If you're a Democratic candidate and have upcoming activities or volunteer needs, put 'em in the comments ... and add RSR to your email list to have future events included in these weekend digests.
