You have to admit it, the Obama campaign has been a big snore since Clinton dropped out of the race. Oh, sure, the Germany speech was great and he didn't pull a single Dukakis/tank moment in Iraq.
But the excitement isn't there.
McCain, meanwhile, is busy busy busy. His numbers are frighteningly good. He continues to raise a lot of money. I recently learned that the co-owner of Manhunt.com, Jonathan Critichley, has maxed out his contributions to McCain.
Keep up those memberships, boys, and you can guarantee you'll get fucked twice.
Doesn't seem to matter what McCain says about reproductive rights, about the war in Iraq, about anything. He keeps snipping away at Obama's lead. I love his recent ad proclaiming his capability to clean up Wall Street.
This from a man who also claims to not know very much about economics. Which is it Johnny?
Meanwhile, Obama's commercials are bland and hard to tell apart from McCain's. While watching the Olympics, the ads run often side by side.
Which one do we like? my son Jake keeps asking.
Obama. He's the good guy.
The Democrats are doing it again. Blowing a sure thing in the home stretch. I can't even mention something I saw today on the internet because I refuse to propagate a rumor, especially against my candidate. But damn, lemme tell ya, it's damaging.
It's time for the bitch to come back because as we know, bitches get things done. Clinton needs to join Obama on the ticket and be let loose. She can rip into McCain- who needs to be ripped into- and Obama can keep his nose clean. Her mere presence is electrifying because you either love her or hate her.
It will give some life back to this campaign.
On the floor, at the convention, post roll call vote- a vote that Clinton will be listed in contention- why not have a little political theater and get the juices flowing again.
Obama Kerry? Obama Bayh? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Obama Nunn? That'll give you some splash but the wrong kind.
We're starting to stall, people. We need some fire. Some splash and excitement.
Obama and Clinton, 2008.
