Everyone my age is familiar with the old World War Two saying about loose lips.
We may be seeing a graphic example of that this week in the Presidential race.
What the Democrats have been taking for given for the last month – that there will be a Democrat landslide victory – seems to be obscured by the tightening of the race right before our very eyes. What could be causing that? Why, it is the undecided voters making their decisions this week! There is no other explanation but that the undecideds are moving in the Republican direction. And it is certainly not the race issue that is causing it. Race as an issue in this election has become less and less a factor every month. Had it been otherwise, the Obama optimism would not be as high as his supporters seem to be overly celebrating – with the customary big mouth boasting we have come to expect.
It is coming from the same morons who shot the Democrat convention to pieces with stupid rules being adopted and pretense enforced until drop dead date – saying that delegates from Michigan and Florida would be disenfranchised because of the dates of their primaries. You can’t get much dumber than that.
Now, this same incompetent “leadership” is again running its mouth in boastings that are alienating the hitherto undecided voters. Barney Frank is announcing his “power agenda” that he intends to push once they have a filibuster proof majority. That agenda would alienate me if I were an undecided voter. Chuck Schumer is predicting a landslide and 60 seats in the Senate. I’m glad I’m not using his pharmaceuticals. There go some more undecided voters over to the McCain side. Jesse Jackson last week bragged that once the Democrat ticket wins, Israel will no longer get everything rubber stamped by the United States. That is not only alienating Jewish undecided voters, but turning previously Democrat Jewish voters to mind changes and support McCain. Nancy Pelosi has her own boastings about there being one party control of the federal government. I can hear the undecided minds making their “oh no you’re not” decisions as I write this.
If McCain wins next week, I know the pundits/analysts will revisit the loose lips issue we are now seeing. How stupid can people get?
