Liberals could learn a lot from Conservatives when it comes to attitude
Edited on Sat Jul-26-08 11:28 PM by punkpatriot411
I worked on Dennis Kucinich's campaign, and while I was in New Hampshire, I met Mike Huckabee, and a throng of Huckabee supporters. I got to talking with one of these theocratic yahoos, and I realized where the left has gone wrong. We care too much about winning, and not enough about standing for something. We could learn a lot from the Conservative ethos.

Particularly the pearl of wisdom dropped by this one Huckabee supporter.

"That whole 'unelectable' thing is a sack of crap. If you don't think your guy has a chance, it means you aren't working hard enough."

Yup. We're so scared of losing, that we throw our votes away on people who don't really represent us. Tsk tsk.
