I have honestly said the same thing. I live in MN I am not that far from Canada.
if this country could really let itself be fooled enough to think McCain will lead us somewhere different then Bush?
then what hope is there for this country. but then again I still think the american people AREN'T stupid they won't be conned. I still say Obama will win because the American people know we need change and McCain is just more of the same.
I think that is a good idea imagine if 50 top left blogs all post the same type of diary at around the same time. say a diary comparing McCain and Bush's education policy, 3-4 hrs before the prime time new shows came on,
anyone reading a blog would see it everywhere and boom they would talk about it too. and I bet if enough blogs at once started talking about it, we'd break into the news cycle.
it works for videos because those go viral naturally, now if we could artificially make a meme go viral.
but the coordination to do that, I doubt the left could do it.
I agree Barack will win in the end, but I am tired of the GOP tactics and say its time we had a way to fight back.
1) Obama killing the 527's now seems like a bad idea, we knew the GOP would use them, but man I at least thought McCain would pretend to run an honorable campaign.
2) Democrats need to stop with the Barack should do this or Barack should do that, the blogs by now should think of a way to do it themselves, there has to be a way to drive the narrative.
I still think the most effective thing is for the blogs to discuss 1 topic, this forces people to take notice when we talk about something, forcing media blogs like TPM or Politico to take notice, and when they do its only a matter of time before it hits the MSM.
right now the MSM picks and chooses what stories to take from the blogs, bloggers should start thinking of ways to not give them a choice but to force story lines on them
I think thats how we win these fights. by doing what Democrats seem to suck at, fighting back.
