    this diary. It's a sad pathetic joke.

      and I'll tell you why.  He's right.  What the fuck good is whining about polls doing?  What the fuck good is whining about the media failing us when it's clear they're not going to change their modus operandi any time soon?  You want to do something about it, then write emails and try to reason with them and hope that they open their fucking eyes.  Don't continuously rant and think that you're going to make some sweeping change in the way our media works before the election.  What the fuck good is it doing to worry about losing right now when we should be focusing on what we need to do to WIN?  That's the point of this diary. To take control away from the media and the pollsters and put it square in our hands.  Yes, in effect, he's complaining about what others are doing but he's attempting to snap them out of their gloom and doom every other day with the pollercoaster, etc.  The polls don't mean shit ultimately.  It's not like anyone here is going to just give up the fight because they say we're behind, is it?  So what good is it to dwell on them every other day?  I suppose the one thing they're good for is to motivate people to work harder, but it's crunch time.  If you want to think about the "what ifs" then use them to convince people what a bad idea a vote for Nader would be and how bad it would be for Bush to win. Is it a good idea to be prepared for the worst?  Sure, but at this stage of the game that needs to be simmering on the backburner and we need to be focused on the task at hand and that's winning.  Wasting time making plans for a loss right now is taking away from helping us win.  That's no joke....

      We are The Knights Who Say "Nay". We do not now, nor have we ever, wanted a Shrubbery....
