Betty Cracker’s piece earlier, taken with Tom Levenson’s piece below are the kinds of things to warm my day. They give me good feelings about the election coming up. Obama looks to win, and win big. I heard on NPR this morning that he was up by eight points over Romney on average in current national polling, an advantage that none of the last three winning presidents enjoyed over their opponents at this stage of the election.
That’s great. It’s also not enough. I don’t want the President to win. I want him to utterly destroy the republican candidate and his Eddie Munster in a cheap suit-looking
succubus incubus as viable political candidates forever. To paraphrase Anne-Laurie from earlier today, throw the bastard an anvil. I want to see six more seats in the US Senate (but I’ll settle for three in this tough year) and I want to see Nancy Pelosi wield the Speaker’s gavel again, but I’d call it a win if we send 15 freshman teabaggers home with their balls in their hands.
I want to run up the motherfucking score.
And here’s our Act Blue thermometer, which will be making an appearance on every one of my posts from now till election day:
Let’s see if we can’t break 50K today!
