Hyped-Up Voter Registation Drives… Will They Work?

Southern Political Report’s Tom Baxter takes a tour of our southern political nooks and crannies to see what might be developing with a new and improved voter registration initiative by Dems and the Obama campaign:

To realize that potential, Obama has already staked considerable resources in building Vote for Change, the campaign’s voter registration and mobilization drive. Already, in Louisiana, there are reports of parish registrar offices swamped with some 70,000 new applications from a voter drive paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Paid Omama staff have been sighted on the ground in Georgia and Virginia, and virtually everywhere else we checked, the word in most of the state parties is that Obama troops specifically tasked with voter registration are on the way.

Full story here. Well that’s so very nice, but ya gotta wonder how much the AJC has been missing that TB since he (voluntarily) got the hell outta Dodge last summer?

Ahhhh the AJC… cutting back on political reporting as a way to gear-up for a really dreary, dull, ho-hum, run-of-the-mill election year like ’08. Bless their little Cox Media Plantation hearts!
