Rybak's re-election folly

MEMO
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: Mobilization and Participation in Electoral Politics

To: R.T. Rybak's Campaign

It has been brought to my attention that ever since political scientists have inhabited the Earth, they have shown that free-wheeling, footloose and fancy-free college students do not vote in great numbers. Whereas homeowners, churchgoers and long-time residents not only vote in greater numbers but know more people as well and can thus spread the word. This evidence suggests that that Rybak campaign should spend very little time at the U of MN and other institutions of higher education in Minneapolis. Storm the city, not the dorms.

I am, sincerely,

a concerned "Re-elect Rybak!" staff member.
