Get Mad. Get Even. And Punch ‘Em In The Nose

What do you feel when you see this (warning, sick and wrong attack on Obama follows):

Angry? Incensed? Stay with that emotion and watch this next one:

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.

  1. from Planned Parenthood – it’s not getting nearly the play on the Cable News Wurlitzer that it should:

  2. is killing Obama.

    Voters don’t want the ‘nice guy’ President.

    In this wacked out world (most of it of our own doing), voters first and foremost want somebody they know is going to be tough – somebody who is unafraid to stand up and smack down his enemy if he needs to.

    It’s not the only thing they want mind you, but it is a prerequisite. People just need to know the guy can throw a punch.

    Obama hasn’t proved he can do that yet.  And despite campaign claims that he is now being more aggressive, he’s still pulling his punches on McCain while not even looking at Palin.

    Oh and Biden? That alleged counter pitbull? He’s  contributing mightily to the cause by running around saying what a great guy McCain is and that Hillary would have been a better VP pick (and if he’s keeps this up he’ll be right).

    Why does every damn Presidential election year turn into and endless Mike Dukakis Groundhog Day loop?  

    McCain is questioning Obama’s patriotism, Palin is ripping his experience, and Rove is running ads calling him a pedophile, yet all these guys can do in response is complain about them lying?

    Of course they’re lying.  That’s not the point.

    The point is that they are swinging as hard as they can with anything and everything they’ve got, and the later Obama waits to start doing the same, the worse his chances get.

    Deck the fucker, Barack.

    Or go home.

    Just find a party that does that and look at their results.

    … Democratic female mayor, about Palin’s adventures in Walsilla, since if they want to make “unlike a community organizer, a mayor is responsible for the decisions she makes” into a slogan, they deserve to have their noses rubbed in the stinking mess that Palin made of governing a small town.

    “Mayor Palin has many accomplishments in Walsilla. For one, she hired a lobbyist who was able to bring a massive amount of federal pork to Walsilla.

    But she also had some absolute disasters. She cut property taxes and raised sales taxes to shift the tax burden from corporations to residents. Then she borrowed to build a sport center. Except, it was not on land that the city owned. Instead of buying it from the rightful owners, she decided to try a legal trick to take over the land. She lost the case, and land that should have cost less than $300,000 ended up costing more than one and a half million dollars.

    That’s the kind of responsibility she showed, and why a town that was debt-free when she took over was mired in debt when she left office.”

    there sat the Republican nominee – a politician who has built an all but saintly reputation for “straight talk” over the years – caught in a vise between Joy Behar and Barbara Walters and getting a lecture from each on honesty.

    “They’re lies,” Behar said of two recent lines of attack from the McCain campaign.

    “By the way, you yourself said the same thing about putting lipstick on a pig,” Walters interjected as a defensive McCain struggled to respond.

    The two daytime talk show hosts are hardly alone.

    McCain’s tactics are drawing the scorn of many in the media and organizations tasked with fact-checking the truthfulness of campaigns. In recent weeks, Team McCain has been described as dishonorable, disingenuous and downright cynical.

    [snip…]

    “We ran a different kind of campaign and nobody cared about us. They didn’t cover John McCain. So now you’ve got to be forward-leaning in everything,” he said.

    There’s no reason Obama can’t be “forward-leaning in everything” now.

    He can do it without having to resort to McCain’s tactics of lies. His hardball can be just calling out McCain and backing him into a corner over McCain’s campaign tactics.
