You know, I got up yesterday morning all excited that finally, I would be able to watch American news live. I checked all the blogs that were supposedly live-blogging the event, and no updates all morning (all night). Then I went to CSPan and let it run while I did other stuff. Pretty boring.

But John Kerry droning on in the background while I wrote a post yesterday may have been responsible for its strange tone. Either that or the novel I've been reading, set in 1660 England. Yeah. One of those.

I think that the Dems really don't get the importance of PR and media blitzing. I left this comment over at Avedon's:

They are capable of stalling the funding but they are not capable of withstanding the media storm they will face when they do. They would need to throw comity out the window, put together a real unified front and hit every media outlet - including blogs and local papers/radio/whatever in every state - with the same message over and over again: the GOP chooses party over country every time and this war is no exception. They would have to devote all of August to delivering this message at home. They would have to name names on television. They'd have to think of clever new ways to get the message out. They'd have to NOT BACK DOWN when everyone appeared to turn against them and the going got tough.

Do you think they have that in them?

  • "[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."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

    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.''
