More and more lefty’s are getting nervous about the election.
I’m telling you, unless we wake up, we’re gonna lose this frickin’ thing.
After watching Obama and Biden on the Sunday morning shows, it is clear they have the wrong message, one that typically loses American elections. If this is their TV message, McCain and Palin will win the national debates and likely go on to victory.
Politeness is not in order. We need to be scared.
McCain seems to have known just what he was doing. Now the question remains, do we?
My beautiful and loving wife, despite seeing her own small business begin to show troubling signs of downturn after years of worry-free success, despite her passion on women’s issues, despite having a son and daughter who may be conscripted, may vote for the party responsible for the entire mess.
What we on the left are really afraid of is a fight. The GOP picked a fight with Dems by going with Sarah Palin. And now there are two schools of thought on how to approach the fight. Ignore Palin, or attack Palin.
We can’t even agree on why McCain is hiding Palin. Are we to believe that the GOP are so clever that the Palin pick is all going according to plan? That McCain already really knew about Palin’s baggage and is simply using it to bait Democrats? Are we to believe that he picked a running mate he knew nothing about because that’s his strategy? Are we to believe that McCain’s hiding Palin because that’s been his plan all along? Just a clever Rovian bait and hook. So the Dem strategy is: stay away from Palin. It’s all a set up!
Bottom line: We lefty’s are afraid. Afraid of McCain. Afraid of Palin. Afraid of the MSM. Afraid of Karl Rove. Afraid of Obama. Afraid of losing. Afraid of our own fucking shadows.
When you’re afraid, it’s really hard to put up a fight.
