I guess I’ll do a rebuttal, of sorts. Well, not even a rebuttal… more like an observation… It’s appearing to me that a lot of people are making way too big an emotional investment in Senator Obama. People are actually believing this guy. Which is fine, I guess… but the disappointment is going to be crushing if he loses because people are getting so tied up in his “hope” shtick. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still believe he’s probably going to win – everything is cyclical and it’s time for things to shift, so the Democrats are well-positioned to make big gains in November.
Still, he might not win. He might lose on substance and real issues. I’m really curious to see what the reaction would be. Will the sycophants be capable of considering the notion that a majority simply didn’t buy this platform? If this is his speech, well… it kinda sucks. If the tagline of his speech is really “We are a better country than this,” well, he can kiss my ass.
Mat, we may need to do a couple Dead Politics “election special” episodes over the next couple months!
