McCainiacs Are Having Trouble Getting Excited - At Least For the Election.....


According to a recent AP-Yahoo poll, supporters of John McCain just aren't as excited about the election than supporters of Barack Obama are. In fact , a paltry 9% of McCain feel excited about the election, compared to 38% of Obama supporters. That sounds about right.. Obama is a bit of a machine right now, and it being his first run, there are a lot of first timers out there who are very jazzed up.
While the numbers for Obama seem encouraging, the numbers for McCain shouldn't be so discouraging. Why? Because we're Republicans, and we don't get excited about anything !!!! I just his the lottery? That's nice. My hot stock just split six times? Cool...... Ms. X is coming to my house in five minutes? guess I better shave......
Republicans are not excitable people. We just go along and do our jobs - without emotion or any excitement. We're political robots. We're Terminators...... Just do the job and win, baby.
Maybe McCain won't win. Obama will be very tough, and the McCain campaign has a lot of the attributes of Bob Dole in '96 - like he's due for his shot, but without a lot of fanfare. But, just because we're not doing handsprings in the streets for McCain, doesn't mean all is lost......
Keep your wits, folks... It's a long way til November......
