A Note To Andrew Sullivan, Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz – Pre-debate #2
Dear Andrew, Chris & Ed,
President Obama is not an Ultimate Fighter who will exact the revenge that you seek on Mitt Romney.
You are not the only people watching this debate and what the President says is not personal to just you, so prepare yourselves. The President represents all Americans and he isn’t going to just say what you want to hear.
This debate is not the actual election, don’t freak out if Mitt Romney has a good “performance” while telling his blatant lies. He’s been rehearsing for this moment for over 5 years, he ought to be good at it by now. And he can afford to hire (and fire) the best coaches.
As the Republican media spins like hell after the debate, please don’t curl up into the fetal position, stick your giant thumbs in your puckered little mouths and whine like someone took your “bankie” away. Put on your big boy pants and act like an adult. You can do it.
What the candidates say actually matters, not just how slickly and passionately they deliver it. Fuck style, give me some substance.
If you give a shit about the future of our country and want to see President Obama continue to move us forward, don’t let your personal expectations and desires interfere with your other higher brain functions, like reasoning and tact.
If you can’t handle any of the above, just SHUT. THE. HELL. UP. and let the rest of us do your jobs for you.
