I'm reading a lot of stuff from a lot of smart people about how, oh, don't worry about the polls tightening, it's just statistical noise, it was inevitable, Republicans are coming home, we're still going to win, etc. etc.
With all due respect to those people, all smarter than I am...BULLSHIT.
These guys steal elections. That's what they do. Yes, they can fail (see 2006), but without the Unitary Executive Dictatorship covering their asses, a lot of Republicans could be looking at serious jail time. Maybe even the Hague. Cornered animals fight the hardest, and we're looking at one panicked elephant backed into a corner.
This thing ain't over.
Now, dare we lose heart? Of course not. We're still ahead, and it's a good, solid lead. But it is slipping. The polls are tightening. That's just cold, hard fact.
So no early celebrating. No complacency. Senator Obama saw this coming. If you can, call, walk, give. I'm sick as a dog (but still have to go to work; gotta love the economy), but my wife and I can still throw a few bucks Obama's way a couple more times.
We can still end up with a President McCain on November 5th. Don't let that be how this thing ends, because we can win this thing if we don't let up.
