Dont go wobbly, Dems Two weeks to gotime enough for one last case of Democratic wobbles and one last resort fueled by Republican desperation.
Democrats, scarred by the stolen election of 2000 and the near miss of 2004, privately worry, wring their hands and, traveling cyberspaces vast expanse, trip over a discouraging word, poll, or prediction. Generally, they neednt look farther than the Drudge Report, which shamelessly selects informationand disinformationin order to stereotype Barack Obama and denigrate his prospects.
With genuine anguish, one Democrat said to me Sunday, Did you see Drudge has Obama only 2.7 percent ahead?
It wasnt actually Drudge, but a poll by Zogby, which Drudge had cherry picked for its pessimism. (Unlike Drudge, Zogby isnt biased; he famously elected Kerry in 2004.) Rasmussens poll used to be Drudges favorite, but on Sunday it showed Obama leading by six, so Drudge swept it under the rug.

Funny that Shrum criticized Drudge for being biased when Drudge linked to this very story! LOL!

"Democrats, scarred by the stolen election of 2000"
Um, what ? The only ones who tried to steal the election in 2000 was the ALL-rodent FL Supreme Court (with a lil help from their media buddies).

Plus the MSM calling Florida for the Dems with the polls still open. Crooks and liars!

They're worried alright. On one hand they tell their sheeple not to be overconfident because 0bama is so far ahead and on the other they tell them not to lose hope because 0bama is only slightly ahead.
I guess when your voters are bought off they are less willing to stick it out.

Bob Shrum has run so many rat campaigns into the ground that it most likely would be a blessing for the “chosen one” to take his advice.
