    when the people throwing their hands in the air, declaring defeat before entering a race, are...

    ... PROFESSIONAL DEMOCRATIC STRATEGISTS!

    It's like being hired to manage the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, then deciding to forfeit all games against the Yankees, because you'll lose anyway.

    Doing a heck of a job!

      youtubes of the Buster Douglas Mike Tyson fight earlier tonight. Weird, because I don't like boxing. But JMM's last post at TPM also reminded me of that, in addition to your comment. Not to say that we should be the Buster Douglas's of electoral politics, but the principle is the same. Show up and do your damnedest, and fortune will favour the brave.

      Always always always always always hit back at the bullies. Hard and without remorse, mercy, or hesitation. Hit back everywhere, hit back in unexpected places. Demoralise your opponent with small unanticipated victories. Pinprick the aura of invincibility. Doolittle raid his ass in the most flagrant manner possible. Be as audacious as possible. Eliminate all their certainties. One successful candidate in a "no-hope" seat is worth far more than the cost of a hundred unsuccessful candidacies.

      We need to start talking about Kansas as blue state. With a straight face.
