There seems to be a pervasive sense that we have already attained victory in the Virginia contests to be decided next week. There are many who are already analyzing Cuccinelli's "defeat" or why he "lost".

Well, I got news for you folks:

He ain't lost anything yet. Take a gander here:

Quinnipiac has the race at FOUR POINTS. And you KNOW the Teabaggers will be out to vote. So let me make a kind request of many of you:

Stop spiking the football. We haven't scored the touchdown yet!

There's more:

1. Have you given money to the Democratic candidates?

2. Are you phone banking for Terry and the rest of the Democratic ticket?

3. If you are in Virginia, are you canvassing?

4. If you are in Virginia have you voted early?

5. If you are in Virginia, have you persuaded other Democrats to come out and vote?

We have NOTHING in the bag yet. The election of the Republicans, especially the terrifying fundamentalist authoritarian Ken Cuccinelli, would be a tragedy for Virginia.
We MUST prevail. So keep working! Keep campaigning!

Complacency is our enemy. GET OUT THE VOTE!!!

And let's get the ROUT of the Republicans underway.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
