Gut Check Pucker Factor
A rare Saturday post, however the fetching Mrs. Cordeiro has left me alone for a few hours and I'm putting off my Honey-Do list.
After checking the Real Clear Politics Poll Summary for today and yesterday, a thought struck me.
W could get 50%+ of the vote on Tuesday.
This brings up a very interesting concept. All the punditry belittled W after the 2000 election because he lacked a popular mandate to govern. So what happens if W garners say 53% of the vote on Tuesday? Will the liberals, MSM, and the rest of the whacked out lefties in the country realize they're on the wrong side of most everything?
Not likely. Still, it will be a great victory.
So, Tuesday is on the horizon. It will end the most important election in recent memory, hopefully giving W another four years in the White House.
But its not over yet. This is gut check time. This is where the battle is won - on the ground and in the trenches. You have to ask yourself the all important question - the same question posed by Jimmy Malone to Eliot Ness in The Untouchables -
What are you prepared to do?
In the immortal words of the Flight Controller in Armageddon
Gentlemen, its pucker time.
Don't just sit there. Vote W-Big Time 2004.
Here endeth the lesson.
