New Yorkers heading to Pennsylvania battleground on election day

Trying to get the word out on a massive election day action for New Yorkers to help the Pennsylvania get-out-the-vote effort.

Big event is on election day, when 20 buses will leave New York in a massive get out the vote effort. The effort represents one of the largest political mobilization of New Yorkers in history. (each bus can hold about 50 people so that's roughly 1000 new yorkers going out to PA to get out the vote!)

Buses will depart from:
- Union Square
- 34th street and 8th avenue
- 86th street and Broadway
- Off the Atlantic Avenue subway stop in Brooklyn

Departure time is set for 9:25am with a return time set for 10:30pm.

People should register beforehand either via email ( ) or phone ( 212 523 0180 extension 48) before Monday 12pm.

casualty count

Another site with casualty counts in Iraq provides more data. Most striking is the clear numbers on coalition members' casualty counts. Also of interest is the 4 week moving average, which seems to be trending up again. Unofrtunately, numbers like that are hardly partisan (ie. numbers don't like) which means that things are much worse than Bush would like us to believe.

Good question from Centerfield: what about Osama?

It seems most are now forgetting about him but Where's OSAMA? Has he become the emanuel goldstein of our times?

Debate 1 linkdump: even more

This time from Allahpundit, more links. One can end up reading about the debates all weekend.

Stretching the truth but not lying.

Memo to Fox: Release the video

If the following story from Talking Point Memos is true, Fox has some interesting quotes. The only way they could make it clear whether it is true or not would be to actually release video showing this to be the case.

Debates: The morning after

The Moderate voice offers a good sumary of links around the blogosphere about last night's debates. Hopefully, polls will soon come out showing us how it actually played out with the electorate. At the end of the day what a few blogger say does not matter much in terms of numbers of votes.
