I Stand with Batwoman

BY Nancy Scola | Wednesday, July 8 2009

The progressive training shop New Organizing Institute's current crop of trainees are learning the ins and outs of online political organizing by full-featured web campaigns for DC mayoral candidates who happen to be of the superhero variety. Pretty clever. In the running: Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, The Atom, The Green Lantern, Batwoman, Superman, Cyborg, and Batgirl. Election day is Friday.

Good thing Aquaman isn't in the running. He would have swamped the competition.
