Why can't a...

.... Democrat be more like a Republican? And by that I mean, just once (ONCE) could a dyed in the wool democrat give her candidate the benefit of the doubt instead of rushing to assume the absolute worst? When George Bush was campaigning, youtubes of him drowning kittens would have been interpreted by his base as a sign of his strength. They would have been terrorist kittens, for frack's sake. But, us democrats, by god, are jaded, cynical, and the smartest guys in the room (and that room includes our candidate). So, a misstep by our guy (even a perceived one) and it's instant gloom and doom: just add blogpost.

I wish just once a democratic blogger would grab the back of the candidate. I don't want us to be like the Bush Legion of Doom, but it would be nice it we could just say "hey, I have a little faith that Barack knows what he's doing."

Sigh - it'll never happen.
