The Plan for November 2nd

This is very important. There has been a lot of talk about how the country is divided evenly and that the race for President is going to go down to the wire. I am starting to discount the talk of a close race. I look at the futures contract for the Bush re-election and it has been doing nothing but going higher. It's now around 70% according to Intrade/Tradesports. Since I am also a huge football fan, I want to put this in words that every sports fan can appreciate and understand. We need to run the score up on November 2nd. We need to absolutely crush the opponent and take away their will to fight. That is essentially the thesis of professor Hugh Hewitt's latest book also. If this were a football game, it needs to be like when Steve Spurrier's Florida Gators used to keep passing the ball even while up by fifty or more points. By running up the score, we will create coattails for candidates down the ticket and there will be no doubt about a second term mandate. So in the words of Ronald Reagan, "let's go out there and run the score up for the gipper!"
