Video: Plouffe's strategy update

The Hyping of Hope continues:

Politics as multi-tiered marketing. Success as a non-falsifiable theory. No matter what happens, every event is more evidence to justify the belief of the True Believer, because belief is necessary to ... excuse me, what is the real objective here?

"We're winning -- send more money! McCain is attacking -- send more money! We've registered X-number of new Democrats -- send more money!"

Need I point out that David Plouffe is a professional political operative, and that fund-raising ability is a primary qualification in his chosen career field? See, whether Obama wins or loses, Plouffe will still walk away with the career credential of being a world-class fund-raiser.

You know, I was taught that a journalist was first and foremost a skeptic. Why is the political press corps nowadays packed full of credulous suckers?

  1. Somehow, I don't think that O's stiffing of Reid's money request will play well after 11/4.

    Just a guess.

    Look at it this way: O has burned the HRC bridge, and now Reid's Senate Democrat bridge.

    One suspects that his desperation level is serious when he acts that way.

    S'pose there's something we don't know about? Hmmmmmmm?
