A Public Fuck-You to Obvious and Other Happy-Talk Babies

I want happy talk. Give me happy talk. Don't say anything bad about my leaders. Give me happy talk. Do not attempt to change their disastrous positions through criticisms and private lobbying. Just give me happy talk.

Happy talk.

Happy talk.

Happy talk.

Happy talk.

I need me my happy talk, 24/7, even if doing so encourages McCain in his ill-advised inertia.

Happy talk.

Happy talk.

Happy talk.

I cannot bear anything but happy talk.

Hey, buddy? I support McCain when he's right and I criticize him -- in an effort to change his behavior -- when he's wrong.

I have privately lobbied for this change for a fucking week. I have sent 15 or more emails about this. 20+ is more like it.

Friday night? When I wasn't blogging? I wasn't out. I was sending emails to the McCain camp. I spent my fucking Friday night pleading with people to change their strategy.

I put up Patterico to posting about this so I could link it. All in an effort to pressure this result, however weakly. I was doing whatever I could.

So take your Stalinist insistence on nothing but 24/7 happy talk and get the fuck off my blog. I've had it with you, and idiots like you.

I'm not letting a smile be my umbrella.

You want happy-talk? Well I fucking want to win.

So who between us is more "on the team"?

someone... wants to know if this is the right time to be "taking credit."

Well, I'm not taking credit. I had nothing to do with this. They came to this conclusion independently, I'm sure.

But I tried.

I am just sick of the constant sniping. I say Palin needs to sound more authoritative and get more comfortable with federal issues? I get sniped. Guess what-- she did need to do that. She has to do more of that.

I have kept the Fannie/Freddie thing off the blog, mostly, for a week, even as I became increasingly alarmed about this "let's not talk about it, we'll just hope it blows over" strategy. I have tried my best to keep it private.

I broke today and went public. Not to be a dick. But to ratchet up the pressure.

Well, fortunately, it seems that McCain actually made this decision this weekend. (I hope.) So my timing was off. I understand that, but also understand: I wrote that way in order to ring the alarm bells. Not to fucking tank him, for God's sake.

The fucking Happy Talk Brigades demand that any criticism -- even of the helpful variety -- is off-limits.

I've had it with the Happy Talk Brigades. I'm trying to fucking win, you dipshits are trying to lose with your unending demands that even obvious errors must be embraced as terrific because to note otherwise would be to undercut the team.

Hey, Happy Talk Babies: You tell me how to spin this as good news and I'll do so. How about that?

You want to know when we're winning and what's working and when we're losing and when things need to change?

Or do you just want to pretend that Obama having 52% on Rasmussen is cause for fucking celebration?

Fucking infants.

I'll start a new blog for you. It'll be called the Everything's Awesome blog. Instead of linking stuff with "Heh," I'll just link everything with "Awesome!" That'll be the only word that actually appears in any post -- "Awesome!"

You want to deal with the situation as it is, or deal with a make-believe pretend-situation that's prettier for you?

Everything's Awesome! So, so awesome!
