Stop complaining about GOTV

I've seen too many Democrats complaining about the fact that they are getting lots of GOTV calls and e-mails. Those calls and e-mails are an indication that the Democratic Party is coming on strong in the final stretch. Those calls and e-mails are GREAT news.

The Democratic 11th Commandment should be: "Thou shalt not complain about GOTV efforts right before an election." The volunteers doing GOTV calls deserve our thanks. It's largely a thankless job, and yes, there is a lot of duplication, overlap and plain old redundancy. But anyone who claims to be a hard core Democratic activist ought to be used to it by now.

Oh, and if no one else has mentioned it to you before: make sure you get out and vote this year.
