That “wake up” bit is one of the most dumbass slogans I think I’ve heard this close to the end of a presidential election. I think I understand what he was probably meaning to say, but (1) that’s in part because I want to and (2) it doesn’t change the fact that when snippets of the speech are replayed over the weekend it’s going to sound plain dumb…
Alceste, you’re so going to get kicked out of the Rick Blaine crew if you don’t figure out a way to blame that on Bush, and quick.
If Shrub’s reckless policies hadn’t lulled America to sleep, John Kerry wouldn’t need to tell us to wake up.
It is at least as good a slogan as BOO!
Reminds me of Bob Dole’s: “Where’s the outrage in America?” during his closing 96-hour tour.
