As I noted last night, Allahpundit is having one of his periodic Eeyore episodes, taking counsel of his fears, letting the MSM implant liberal spin in his mind, filled with dark forebodings as the Doug Hoffman campaign stands poised on the brink of a "miracle" victory.
STOP BUMMING ME OUT, MAN!
Neurasthenia isn't a problem limited to the blogosphere, however. Some New York Republicans are also listening to their inner Eeyores -- and sending fretful e-mails to Dan Riehl.
There's a lesson here for young people: Those who dare, do. If you pay too much attention to whiners, you'll never accomplish anything great in life. Sensible caution is one thing, but those who are too cautious succumb to the paralysis of fear. Victory is impossible without risk.
Fear is contagious, but confidence is, too. Therefore, if you set out to do something, do it boldly and ignore the worry-warts. Your courageous example will inspire others, and your victories will silence the naysayers.
Newt Gingrich listened to the whiners, as Michael Patrick Leahy explains today at TCOT Report. (Hat-tip: Dan Riehl.) The result? Newt's toast for 2012.
Doug Hoffman didn't listen to the whiners, and now he's striking fear in the hearts of MoveOn.org.
Be like Doug, kids. He may look like a nerdy accountant, but he's a guy who started out pumping gas at age 14 and ended up as a millionaire -- and now may be just five days away from being elected to Congress.
