you know your campaign's in trouble when...

Every Democratic pundit has been furiously writing editorials, blog posts, and open letters to Barack Obama for the last several days, all with one basic message:


I have said for months now that Obama is a dangerous candidate for the Democrats to support because he doesn't have the stomach for the "wet work" of professional American politics as they exist today. It sure looks like a lot of other people are coming to the same conclusion and panicking as they realize that this election, which should be no contest at all, is very much up for grabs and that McCain's new Rovian staff knows no boundaries, no proprieties, no mores, and will stoop to any level in order to win. They are dedicated to winning and are willing to do whatever it takes.

On this side, Obama took a week-long vacation in the height of the most important election cycle in history. He is politely asking McCain to stop being mean and to play nice, and all that he will get for those efforts is crushed at the election-day polls.

It's time to learn how to take off the gloves and get committed, punch hard and often, and to not be afraid to get dirty when the other guy does.

Choose not to do so and we will have President McCain as the forty-fourth occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Mr. Obama, you have no other options. This will be your only bite at the apple. If you lose this election, you will never have another chance. You may as well push all of your chips into the pot and play to win, because losing will be political doom and you will be a pariah to all liberals for the rest of your life.

Barack Obama, man up and fight for your life. If you're not willing to join in battle, back out now and give the reins to Hillary Clinton.
