Michael Moore's Blog: The 'Slacker Uprising Tour' begins

Michael Moore's Blog: "We kicked things off last night in Elk Rapids, Michigan, a small village in the North Country. The high school auditorium was packed and we probably could have filled it three times over. The event was put together by a group called the 'AllDems' who are from an even smaller village than Elk Rapids. Nobody up here knew there were so many liberal-leaning people! The AllDems were founded by one woman, a while back, who thought she was the only Democrat in the area. It then grew by leaps and bounds once word got out that it was safe to come out of the closet. Word also got out that there was free beer and wine at the meetings. Following the belief that it is better to go to where people are than expect them to come to you, the AllDems are a perfect model of how ANYONE can just go ahead and start their own political organization where they live and make things happen. If you are waiting for someone else to do it (or for the official party representatives to do so) it's going to be a long wait."
