Which one is important to you?

Just ask our beloved Tampa Rays. Seven runs up and they lose after giving up eight to Boston in the last three innings.

I think that the coaching philosophy of former Buccaneers coach, Tony Dungy, is apropos for this election:

“If we are up by three then we are down by seven”

Complacency kills election campaigns.  A candidate that I was advising a few years back managed to get hold of some damning information on his opponenent and, against my judgement, he released the information too soon.  His stick-a-fork-in-that-one attitude cost him dearly.  His opponent, an incumbent, had time to reorganize and re engineer his campaign.  My candidate stopped canvassing and paid no attention to strategy sessions.  His endorsement by the local papers made things worse and he became glib and cavalier.  Of course, my guy lost because of his hubris.  Exit polls revealed that he was too aloof.  An opinion that only surfaced in the final month of the campaign.

Don’t take your foot off the pedal, keep donating, stay motivated.  Nineteen days is a lifetime.

Thought this was quite funny, hat tip to Maddow on MSNBC.

Philadelphians are a tough crowd and they can smell bullshit a mile away.  They are difficult for politicians to attach themselves to, but once you do they’re loyalty is endless.

The crowds booing of Palin is Pennsylvania’s natural reaction to the hideous tones that Palin has bought to bear on the McCain campaign.  Basically, these fans said that they were not going to aid and abet this idiot with hijacking the election.

Looks like America’s winking, folksy, down home girl’s novelty has worn off.  Sarah Palin not so loved by hockey goers as some would like us to think.
