October surprise better hurry!

If the Republicans really have an October surprise they had better hurry. Here in Washington State Ballots can be mailed no later than October 20th and likely will be mailed around the 17th. In other words, a goodly number of Washington votes will already be cast 21st or 22nd and likely 65-75% by the 30th(voters tend to fill out the ballots on the weekends). If they want to influence Washington state voters and absentee voters everywhere in the country the clock is really ticking. One week, maybe two to spring something(on us - too much to hope they will re-Foley themselves?). SO keep fingers crossed, hold breath, and volunteer for your local GOTV drives. Remember, the last week in some places like Washington is NEXT week.
