Here's an interesting little tidbit: Michael Diven is offering $50 to the first 100 people to sign up to work for him on Election Day. Apparently, he's that desperate.

I figure that if people were to sign up and then not show up, Republican turnout efforts could be very adversely affected.

Anyone interested should contact the Diven Campaign Headquarters at:
