Even as we speak, the troops are being rallied by this fine example of soul-stirring rhetoric:
It starts with an admission of defeat, and an explanation of why we should all be proud of "our" Dems anyhow:
We got our asses truly kicked in Wisconsin. The fight was worth it, because there are things worse than a good ass kicking, such as quitting before the fight. Dems and labor could have surrendered, but they did not. They tried.
On what planet, Pluto? Here on Earth, the Dems picked an antilabor candidate, and the unions took it as they always do. So yeah, they surrendered. And they didn't even pretend to try.
Next comes a history lesson:
Since 1968, after the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, which is 44 years ago, three Democratic Presidents have been elected.
Carter in 1976, Clinton in 92 and 96, and Obama in 08. That's it. During that time, workers have continually fallen behind, and class stratification has taken off to 3rd World levels. The inequality today is as great as in the 1920s, maybe the 1890s.
Hey Pluto, maybe that's why they don't vote Dem more often.
Gitcher pompoms out for the concluding cheer:
I'm all in for Barack Obama. Fuck the loss in Wisconsin. It's time to be fired up and ready to go forward.
Anything you say, Plu...zzzzzzzzzzz
