Ah, a bloggers work is never done!
Right this very moment the same blow-dried blowhards who bear as much responsibility for the last eight years as anyone besides Dick Cheney are attempting to spread their bullshit over the Change that our nation chose last night.
We were all worried about the Republicans stealing another election and We The People made damn sure that didn’t happen by turning out in record numbers. By giving Change a mandate. But now the pundits are attempting another kind of theft, they are trying to steal the election results. By defining what the election meant. And by trying to define what it meant, they are attempting to define what it will mean. The pundits are trying to steal the election from Change, and give it back to the status quo. They must be stopped!
Just as the blogs defined Sarah Palin in the days immediately following her selection and changed the media narrative from America’s Darling to dangerous extremist, we must now define this victory. Define it as the mandate for Change that it was. Define it as an American uprising. Define it as a new era, not as ‘just politics’ as they would like to. ONLY by establishing the narrative of Change do we win the results of the election. Only then can we achieve the full potential open to us, open to Change.
Things are NOT the same as they were before last night. The world Changed. The pundits will resist that Change because they are “in power,” and change threatens that power. They probably don’t even have the self-reflection to realize that, but it is real and they will react to it.
Their is a one word answer to the pundits right now and in the days to come and that word needs to be pounded into the ground.
Their is a short catchy phrase that must be repeated until we are all sick of it and then repeated some more.
Mandate for Change.
Do NOT, my friends, (!) let the pundits steal this election for the status quo. It belongs to US, to We The People. It belongs to Change.
