And despite the media having written off Coakley's campaign (after all, there's nothing they like better than "explaining" an election means the Democrats are "too liberal"), I got a report from the field saying the volunteers are pouring into Coakley headquarters this weekend for GOTV efforts:

"Vols are flooding the place. People are fighting for chairs at coakley hq. Folks are sitting on boxes and backpacks and whatever is around. There are no phones left in the phone bank here. Vols have stopped telling me to shut up as I yell at reporters on the phone because they can no longer hear me over the din of everyone else working the phones. The CW is wrong and the national narrative is a week behind. Energy level is high on our side. We've got a populist argument, we are on offense, we know the stakes, we are galvanized by the influx of tea party money and Republican bloviations. That story needs to be told."

If you want to help, register here to make calls from home this weekend.

In the meantime, the class acts over at RedState are trying to jam the Coakley phone banks. (Uh, guys? It's still illegal. I know that never stops you, of course.) And rumor has it that Holy Joe Lieberman will endorse Brown, the former Cosmo nude model. (Think about that.)

UPDATE: (Nicole) Just caught this on the Twitter:

@democratsdotorg: BROWN BULLYING TACTICS WATCH: Report of Coakley signs burned in Hyannis…hearing arrests made—send photos/accounts #MASen

coakley's put up an alert button on her site.
