The right's potential worries vs the left's stark reality

The Shadow had to cloud men’s minds to be in busi­ness. The Green Hor­net had to go through the fetishist fol-​de-​rol of don­ning cos­tume, floppy hat, black mask, gas gun, men­ac­ing auto­mo­bile, and insect sound effects before he was even ready to go out in the street. The Lone Ranger needed an accou­tremen­tal white horse, an Indian, and an estab­lish­ing cry of Hi-​Yo Sil­ver to sep­a­rate him from all those other masked man run­ning around the West in days of yes­ter­year.

But Super­man had only to wake up in the morn­ing to be Superman.

I was read­ing Neo-​Neocon this morn­ing (via live at five). She noted although Her­man Cain with­drew 3 days ago he is still being hit by the Daily Beast:

a per­son can spout off to the press these days (the Daily Beast is oper­ated by Tina Brown and owned by Newsweek) and say vir­tu­ally any­thing with­out proof, and it will all be printed as long as it’s about a per­son the MSM wishes to elim­i­nate. One would think that Cain had been destroyed enough already, but appar­ently the Beast desires to humil­i­ate him still further

she also noted a dis­tinct lack of curios­ity con­cern­ing a key subject:

the Beast trots out the old “dozens of com­mu­ni­ca­tions between her and Cain, includ­ing pre-​dawn text mes­sages” rou­tine. Some­how no one’s ever man­aged to find out how many of them were from Cain, and no one ever seems to care.

I had that in my mind when I saw this tweet from Mod­ern Comments:

I have been hear­ing this again and again ‚in so many forms, about so many can­di­dates. So lets answer this fear…

Yes we should assume the next elec­tion is not a done deal.

We all, as über-​political junkies know that because we know that a lot of effort is going to be done by the vast Left Wing /​Union con­spir­acy in their GOTV (Get Out The Vote) efforts.

Yes, we know the left is not going to fight “fair

Make no mis­take about it, folks, the next year is going to be tough on con­ser­v­a­tives. Barack Obama has been one of the worst Pres­i­dents in Amer­i­can his­tory, but he’s not just going to roll over and hand the pres­i­dency to the GOP. Since he has almost noth­ing pos­i­tive to cam­paign on, he’s going to run an extremely neg­a­tive cam­paign and the main­stream media will do every­thing in its power to help him. The attacks on the GOP nom­i­nee are going to come fast and furi­ous for the bet­ter part of a year

Yes, this all sounds scary, but here is the reality:

They’ll spend hun­dreds of mil­lions of dol­lars to define who­ever the GOP nom­i­nee is.…

They’ll have thou­sands of hours of air­time and col­umn inches writ­ten by their MSM fol­lows pro­claim­ing it…

They’ll pro­duce youtube videos by the hun­dreds, posts by the thou­sands and tweets by the mil­lions from paid bloggers…

They’ll do all this in an attempt to cre­ate a neg­a­tive image of the GOP nom­i­nee and place it before vot­ers faces in the hope that it will set­tle on those vot­ers minds…

…but all of that will be hard pressed to counter the image of Barack Obama in vot­ers mind acquired sim­ply by wak­ing up each day and liv­ing the train wreck of last 3 years his pres­i­dency has been.

What a hand­i­cap the left is oper­at­ing under! They have to man­u­fac­ture and ped­dle a sto­ry­line and hope the vot­ers buy it. All we have to do is remind peo­ple of what they’ve already lived and we’re sup­posed to be afraid of these guys?

That’s why I say, media dol­lars and attacks not withstanding:

Ride right through them, They’re demor­al­ized as hell!

for every morn­ing, from now to elec­tion day they will wake up and Barack Obama will still be Barack Obama.

Update: Rox­eanne De Luca at her own blog notes some­thing con­cern­ing the Cain attacks that I neglected:

Da TechGuy notes, almost with sur­prise, that Her­man Cain is still being attacked by the lame stream media. The anti-​Palin attacks didn’t stop when Obama won in Novem­ber of 2008, nor when she went back to Alaska, nor when she resigned her gov­er­nor­ship. The Cain attacks will con­tinue for a long, long time – a Mob-​like reminder to con­ser­v­a­tive women and minori­ties that there are penal­ties for not play­ing by the rules (i.e. allow the MSM to demonise the Right as being the party of rich, priv­i­leged middle-​aged white men).

She’s right, Kevin Jack­son made the same point on the show this week, I should have thought of it.

I was reading Neo-Neocon this morning (via live at five). She noted although Herman Cain withdrew 3 days ago he is still being hit by the Daily Beast:

a person can spout off to the press these days (the Daily Beast is operated by Tina Brown and owned by Newsweek) and say virtually anything without proof, and it will all be printed as long as it’s about a person the MSM wishes to eliminate. One would think that Cain had been destroyed enough already, but apparently the Beast desires to humiliate him still further

she also noted a distinct lack of curiosity concerning a key subject:

the Beast trots out the old “dozens of communications between her and Cain, including pre-dawn text messages” routine. Somehow no one’s ever managed to find out how many of them were from Cain, and no one ever seems to care.

I had that in my mind when I saw this tweet from Modern Comments:

I have been hearing this again and again ,in so many forms, about so many candidates. So lets answer this fear…

Yes we should assume the next election is not a done deal.

We all, as uber-political junkies know that because we know that a lot of effort is going to be done by the vast Left Wing / Union conspiracy in their GOTV (Get Out The Vote) efforts.

Yes, we know the left is not going to fight “fair

Make no mistake about it, folks, the next year is going to be tough on conservatives. Barack Obama has been one of the worst Presidents in American history, but he’s not just going to roll over and hand the presidency to the GOP. Since he has almost nothing positive to campaign on, he’s going to run an extremely negative campaign and the mainstream media will do everything in its power to help him. The attacks on the GOP nominee are going to come fast and furious for the better part of a year

Yes, this all sounds scary, but here is the reality:

They’ll spend hundreds of millions of dollars to define whoever the GOP nominee is….

They’ll have thousands of hours of airtime and column inches written by their MSM follows proclaiming it…

They’ll produce youtube videos by the hundreds, posts by the thousands and tweets by the millions from paid bloggers…

They’ll do all this in an attempt to create a negative image of the GOP nominee and place it before voters faces in the hope that it will settle on those voters minds…

…but all of that will be hard pressed to counter the image of Barack Obama in voters mind acquired simply by waking up each day and living the train wreck of last 3 years his presidency has been.

What a handicap the left is operating under! They have to manufacture and peddle a storyline and hope the voters buy it. All we have to do is remind people of what they’ve already lived and we’re supposed to be afraid of these guys?

That’s why I say, media dollars and attacks not withstanding:

Ride right through them, They’re demoralized as hell!

for every morning, from now to election day they will wake up and Barack Obama will still be Barack Obama.

The anti-Palin attacks didn’t stop when Obama won in November of 2008, nor when she went back to Alaska, nor when she resigned her governorship. The Cain attacks will continue for a long, long time – a Mob-like reminder to conservative women and minorities that there are penalties for not playing by the rules (i.e. allow the MSM to demonise the Right as being the party of rich, privileged middle-aged white men).

She’s right, Kevin Jackson made the same point on the show this week, I should have thought of it.
