Go

Maybe I’m wrong, maybe John McCain has a shot in PA. A new poll has Obama only up by 4 in PA, with 9 undecided. I still think it’s unlikely but if you’re a New Yorker and want to go to PA to help out this weekend, contact me and I’ll help make that happen.

No, I just hate you and want to be rid of you.

Posted by: Karol at October 30, 2008 at 12:31 pm

I think we should take our theater to streets of undecided pa suburbs!
me: (smiles broadly) hi I’d like to convince you to vote for Barack Obama
you: (twirls hair) hi I’d like you to not vote for anyone she wants you to vote for. BTW I love Wutang too!
me: hey, you don’t want to be racist do you?
you: he’s only half black, so you’d be like half racist –and that’s not so bad. OMG that’s my favorite crusette!
hmmm…on second thought, I don’t like where this goes. never mind. you stay away from pa.

Posted by: Not Dawn Summers at October 30, 2008 at 12:41 pm

Hahaha, because I’m cuter and win the voter over with my adorableness? BTW, what’s a Crusette?

Posted by: Karol at October 30, 2008 at 12:47 pm

Also, I’d let the voter know that if he’s wearing a Wu-tang shirt no one can call him racist anyway.

Well, sweet Jesus, with virtually every media outlet completely in the tank for Obama, every foreign nation’s endorsement (except Israel), every Hollywood moonbat’s endorsement, and 700 million dollars spent, how is it that every poll is somehow still within the marigin of error?
Shouldn’t Obama be slamming McCain 70% to 30%, or worse? Why do you suppose that is?

I’d say it’s because Obama is an empty suit with zero experience managing anything and completely unready to be president. Of course, that opinion and $2 can get me on the subway if Obama pulls off the expected victory. Obama is weak, just sucks that Republicans nominated someone even weaker.

yes, what is a Crusette?

If McCain wins, its going to be so juicy.

Posted by: Jillian at October 30, 2008 at 2:48 pm

It’s so funny you would mention juicy!

Posted by: nds at October 30, 2008 at 2:55 pm

You know what’s not funny? That no one has contacted me about going to PA. When I posted something similar in ‘04, I got an avalanche of email and people were willing to go ANYWHERE. It’s a sign people, just saying.

Posted by: Karol at October 30, 2008 at 4:06 pm

The shadenfreude will be soooooo sweet if McCain wins. It’s the best kind of freude, after all.

Posted by: Eric at October 30, 2008 at 4:06 pm

But in ‘04 we had the wildly popular GWB running.

Posted by: Eric at October 30, 2008 at 4:08 pm

Eric, I can’t tell if you’re kidding about GW’s popularity. Are you?
And yes, at this point my main reason for wanting McCain to win is to watch the Obamatons cry.

Posted by: Karol at October 30, 2008 at 4:13 pm

Heh heh. Of course I’m kidding. I don’t recall a president who was more reviled by his political opponents, and even among his base support is lukewarm and grudging.
But Bush had two big advantages in ‘04. One, Americans wanted to win the war, which the Democrats were promising to lose. Two… well, they nominated Lurch.
McCain has neither advantage, and he hasn’t given us much reason to vote for him beyond “I’m not Obama”. That’s hardly recipe for throngs of enthusiastic volunteers.

Posted by: Eric at October 30, 2008 at 4:39 pm

It could also be because that poll is a serious outlier. All of yesterday’s polls put McCain at ~ -12.

You know, once you get outside of coastal commie country, America is a pretty patriotic place. We know who we are, and we don’t really give a shit about kenyan karpetbaggers telling us who we are. We root for our team, and we don’t like people who don’t. We like plain speaking, not some smarmy smooth-talker. That’s why we like country music, and why real patriotic Americans will like this. I’ll bet you can’t listen to it just once.

Posted by: Casca at October 30, 2008 at 10:21 pm

Hey, I’ll go to PA for McCain. Send me the info!

Posted by: nds at October 30, 2008 at 11:51 pm

Speaking of PA., Kanjorski is a goner.
That means Lou Barletta will be the next Republican (freshman) congressman from the Keystone State.
That’s right, NY ICE will have its very own man on the inside of that cess pool called D.C.
Screw you, ACLU!

You were close, casca. I couldn’t listen to it once. It’s no surprise you are wrong about everything; you don’t even listen to the right Hank Williams.

“with virtually every media outlet completely in the tank for Obama”
Snoop, if Obama wins, are you going to say it was because of the media? Are you saying, by extension, that US citizens are a bit stupid. and that the TV makes them do things against their will? Is this another backwards-playing record thing?
It couldn’t possibly be that people aren’t buying what the Reps are selling, could it, it’ll be the media?

BTW Karol, saw an article in the Washington Post about a guy knocking doors in PA, coming up against disillusioned cons. Hope you have better luck. Bush seemed to have more of the GOTV types, and McCain seems to have cut back a biton them, No?. I think every stop needs to be pulled out on the GOTV front (Obama’s guys are certainly chanting the ABC mantra)
Remember Karol:
Always

Closing!
Good Luck!

Are you saying, by extension, that US citizens are a bit stupid.
I won’t speak for Karol, but this is where libertarians like me have it easy. Regardless of who wins the election, I can say that the American people were stupid to let either of the.
The media here has a lot of the blame. There has never, NEVER been a media so “in the tank” for a candidate. I thought the media did everything possible to promote the myth of a bad economy in 1992 (it was already recovering, and the recession had ended in March 1991). This year takes the cake.
Americans are very gullible with the news, and they tend to believe whatever spin is on the major networks’ nightly broadcasts. Add to that the fact that they’ve been “softened up” over the last 16 years to believe that the impossibilities of Obamanomics is possible — not the least of which is saying the bottom 95% will not pay higher taxes, when the top 1% already pay 40% of income taxes.
