What do you feel when you see this (warning, sick and wrong attack on Obama follows - click through at your own peril): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVLQhRiEX Zs
Angry? Incensed? Stay with that emotion and watch this next one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w613nayrY wo
Outraged? Shocked by the utter disrespect for anything that resembled the truth?
Note to the Obama campaign: you know we love ya. You know we admire that cool, intellectual way you approach politics, and the Buddha-like equanimity you exude when times get tough.
But - and I mean this with all the respect in the world - ENOUGH!
Don't whine to the media about how unfair the McCain folks are. Don't think you get a penalty point because Rick Davis is an arrogant a*hole who'll stoop lower than Beelzebub himself just to win this thing.
You think they'll stop the nasty attack ads? You really believe these folks won't pull out every. dirty. trick. in the book - including voter disenfranchisement, caging, lying, faux protests and even buying off select members of the establishment (you know who you are) - to win this thing?
You don't think they'd attack Obama's kids if they thought it would win them one undecided voter in one swing state?
Think again, guys.
Now is the time to come to terms with the facts as they are. Leave the ideology at the doorstep and pragmatically look at this election right now, right here, for what it is. If you don't change course with all due speed: you will lose this thing.
Now, lecture over. Get to work. All y'all on the web, hit those phones, donate money, talk to your friends, family and neighbors. Email like you've never emailed before. We are the front line of defense in this war to wrench this country away from the self-serving idiots who've done their darnest to run it into the ground these last eight years.
Obama campaign: we love you. We've got your back. But you guys need to post a picture of Rick Davis in your campaign headquarters and daily - no, make that hourly - look at that smug mug and hit it hard. Make it bleed. Shoot darts at it or do whatever you need to do to get mad. Get even.
Punch 'em in the nose.
And just to prove I'm no nervous nelly, no chicken little, I'm gonna challenge everyone reading this to donate $5.00 to the campaign right now. We can all afford it - let's let them know we're not going to just stand by and let another election be stolen.
