    to my diary Don't let debate panic become the new narrative

    I'm still amazed at the cluelessness of some regular FP users. They don't understand how their self-flagellation helps Romney.

    I don't want to see those self-flagellating masochists anywhere near election discussions for the next 26 days.

    The fundamentals of the OfA campaign --are-- strong. I think we will still win if the President and VP lose the next three debates. But I think these self-flagellating masochists are the one thing that could screw everything up.

    (I don't want to have to panic over the nutjobs in a panic.)

    I hope; therefore, I can live.

      Is we have a lot of people who are by nature pessimists, (there's several less kind descriptions of them but I'll be as polite as possible in this instance) and for a couple of months the Obama campaign had been near perfect. So when they finally erred and the fact that it was in a big moment all of that pent-up pessimism was let loose and we were off.
