The Audacity of Gratitude
This is one of the best, most moving, most articulate and clean and bright viral campaign videos I've ever seen. I have a feeling that John McCain will turn out to be a 100% improvement over George W. Bush as a communicator.
See what you think:
McCain rams headfirst into the rock of Obama, and I think I'm seeing that mighty, messianic facade cracking and crumbling. McCain isn't one inch afraid of Mr. Agent of Change: Obama seems to be saying there's nothing really good about America, and we need a total transformation of society in order to finally feel proud of our country
But McCain responds that there is goodness and greatness in this country, and he's here to remind us of what is worth preserving -- and what's worth fighting for. It's like Reagan's first and second campaigns rolled together into one unstoppable force. This kind of campaign is going to excite young people just as much as, maybe more than Obama's preaching from the pulpit of progressivism.
Timing the clip of Winnie saying "never give in, never yield, never surrender" to shots of McCain in the Hanoi Hilton is just a brilliant, brilliant way to highlight how many trials by fire he has endured and triumphed over... compared to how little we even know about the pragmatist socialist Hillary Clinton and the liberal fascist Barack Obama.
I think I'm really going to enjoy this campaign season.

It took years and years of reading and imagining and suffering and fighting for the ineffable Don Quixote to come to the place where he could finally and truthfully say "I know who I am!"
McCain is already the stuff of History; he may be about to become the stuff of Legend!

This is the stuff we can build on. John McCain is a much better communicator than W and yet W still won both times. It wasn't until this week that I really started to fire up.
NOW, LET'S GO GET 'EM!!
Now, if we could just ask Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter to be quiet and understand that selling their books and radio shows is not what the goal is here. The goal is to defeat O'Billary.

I like it. 8 years of the lefts poundings against W may have given them a sight advantage, but their security points are still about surrendering...

YouTube has discontinued the video for some reason. Is it available elsewhere?

I just tried it and it works; try it again, maybe they've restored it.
