Actually, it takes much more time to lose an election. The ones I worked on, we worked much harder than the opponents, who skated in on name recognition and the backing of the Democratic party machine.

We had 800 volunteers compared to about 40 for the other guy. Which says a lot about the power of the Democratic party machine.

Sigh, Feingold/Pennachio?

Granny: When Feingold runs, he's going to pick a DINO to "balance" the ticket. That's if he even gets that far. It'll be some trick for him to get past the DLC crowd, which will do their best to smother his campaign in its crib.

Kathy: You're right. Casey didn't lift a finger. His hardest work was, as I said, to stay out of the public eye. Of course, the corporate media obliged him.

As for the power of the machine, you're right about that too. At any time they could have dropped a million into tv ads anywhere they wanted to run them. But they didn't have to this time. I think that reveals something sad about the electorate in PA. We just don't care who's running for what. Turnout was low, as usual, and people just went for the name they know. Not everyone, of course. Some people think Casey is the best chance to win and don't care if he's a Republican. They're going to be much sadder in November than I was on Tuesday if they really believe that's true.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
