Are You Scared, Democrats? You Should Be.

Not because I think we’re going to lose, but because fear is such a good motivator. Which is why the Repubs use it so frequently to win elections.

This crazy Palin bubble is pretty much mid-burst and the wall street avalanche is sending the polls back towards Obama. It’s still close, however, and it will be up to the elections. I haven’t stopped thinking Obama will win – especially because all the polls are so jacked up whether it’s due to the fact that their samples do not actually represent registered, likely voters or that the media focuses on national polls instead of swing states and swing counties.

The ability of the Repubs to steal the election through voter caging, like they’re doing up in Michigan right now, push polling, lying, etc., however, does scare me.

Democrats and lefty-leaning Independents need to be scared. This will motivate them to ensure their registration is valid, wait in those long lines at the nursing home to vote, and throw out the erroneous notion that politics is not part of polite conversation. We’re so motivated in this house, we’re going to throw a tail-gating party outside our local elementary school where the booths are set up and enjoy libations into the early morning hours of November 5 as the results finish rolling in. A few people in our little rag-tag FreeThinkers group are taking November 6 off so we can ring the future just right.

Confidence is fine – and a bit necessary keeping the blood pressure down while watching videos of McCAin telling the ladies at The View that Palin did not accept earmarks and there are no lies in their ads. But, we have to keep in mind that the McShithead IS a good debater. Americans are not informed and vote largely based on little more than aesthetics. Racism is alive and well in the good ol’ U.S. of A. And nothing less than the Supreme Court and our civil liberties, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, and death of McLying-Shithead, leaving Palin free to appoint her pastor as foreign secretary are at stake.

This recent jump in the polls by team McDementia should serve as a warning to us all. This is not your typical election. This is the apocolypse of political elections. This is Platoon and we are Charlie Sheen. Yes, Charlie Sheen.

Be scared, be very scared. And then vote your asses off.

    I really didn’t catch that McCain was a good debater in the repub debates where he had to fend off folks from all sides. He was able to do a bunch of back and forth with Romney at that final debate that had Huckabeeeee, Paul-o, Romney and McInsane. But when it came to anything he didn’t know about (such as economy, he’s a self proclaimed doofus on the subject), he just spouted stuff off like Ms. South Carolina…I even think I recall a couple “and, um, such as” tossed into a few of his brilliant pontifications.

    Great Blog. I was just thinking how frightening it all is. Here in NYC, 12,000 people just lost their jobs. I know a major at Lehman’s–he was always going down to DC to speak for GOP functions. Didn’t do much good, did it. Is is just me, or did was anyone a bit concerned about poor Trig Palin, 5 months old, an hour in a loud, light flashing environment, with not a flicker of a reaction. No one has questioned Palin parading a 5 month old Downs syndrome child in a disturbing environment (did he have on earplugs?)for her political gain.

    Even though I’m an independent who likes the fact that republicans are tough and will go balls-2-the-wall to win, I’m happy with Obama, I don’t vision him as a weak John Kerry type democrat (which is why I support Obama).
    The Obama campaign is not stupid, they know what the republicans plan on doing, which is why they deployed lawyers to make sure the GOP here in MI won’t use a foreclosure list to stop people from voting.
    And, as much as I voice, on my blog, the fact that I think Palin is inexperienced and whacko, she’s not stupid, Democrats should be worried about Palin because she didn’t get this far on luck, come on this women has guts, she can lie over and over again and not care. I can’t even lie without making a weird facial expression.
    Sure, race will be a factor, but so will Palin’s laughable experience. I love watching and reading about focus groups. There was a focus group of voters who voted for Bush in Florida, and because of Palin’s inexperience they are unenthusiastically planning on voting for Obama, the Jewish voters inthe group claimed she was too far right…who knew 🙂
    Anyways, this is a great blog and you have unintentionally earned your way onto my blogroll.
    I also snagged that cute little photo-shopped picture.

    Thanks, Sensico – feel free to snag any and all photos. I agree with all your sentiments and consider myself an Independent, though here in Texas you are registered whichever primary you choose to participate in – and there are only two primaries, Dem and Repub. The good ol’ boy political system is alive and well here in the Lonestar State, although there are more and more legitimate Independent candidates running every year. And LOVE your picture section.
