Lifting this from a comment at HuffPo. I think it’s important enough to think about:
It’s better to defeat an enemy instead of battering a victim. She’s tough. A lot of conservatives are, especially when they think God has made them better than the rest of us.
Obama has been running as a ‘hero’. His problem was that he didn’t have a villain. Hilary wasn’t a villain. McCain was a nuisance, but McCain/Palin gives birth to the right wing villain that Obama (and his supporters) needed. We were getting lazy. Overconfident.
Now we’re awake again. We see the hearts of the people who want to keep power in the hands of the few and away from the many. We see the pretty face they’ve put on hate.
We need to never forget what we’re campaigning and fighting for…or who we’re fighting against.
