People You Depend On

Remember that scene in Fight Club, where Tyler Durden warns off the chief of police:

Hi. You're going to call off your rigorous investigation. You're going to publicly state that there is no underground group. Or... these guys are going to take your balls. They're going to send one to the New York Times, one to the LA Times press-release style. Look, the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep. Do not... fuck with us.

Well, what happens when the very people who the McCain campaign depends on to spread their slimy attacks rebel. An entire call center in Indiana walked out rather than read the crap the GOP wanted to put out. The people who work in call centers are not Republicans. They are not going to get John McCain's tax cut. They are going to get better health care with Obama and worse health care under McCain. If enough of them get wise to the situation and make their stand, the whole system could come crashing down.

I love the smell of political awareness. Smells like - victory!
