Gearing up for the Election, here's a post that Instapundit linked in August.
Instapundit has often used the phrase "Don't get cocky" after describing good polling news for the Republicans or tea parties. Maybe it's good to be cocky. Really cocky.
The more enthusiasm on the Republican side, the more likely the opposition will be down and unable to match the enthusiasm. Which leads to mistakes that can turn close Democratic wins into close Republican wins. To reverse the last two election cycles, the enthusiasm must be on the Republican side and discouragement on the Democratic side.
I'd like to see the Republicans win 111 more seats - one for each panel, commission or government entity in the health care plan.
Too big? Probably. But you've got to dream big to win big.
Living in the sixth district of Virginia, we have no worries of a Democratic win. No Democratic candidate is running. They tried in 2008, and lost despite coattails of Barack Obama and Mark Warner. With no potential coattails this year, no one is trying.
Instead, Democrats not used to challenges will be seriously challenged. The list of competitive races grows as the election gets closer.
The wave appears to be building. Don't rest on your laurels, but put yourself in perfect position to ride the wave to victory.
It's just like bodysurfing on the ocean. The wave is there and you just have to find the sweet spot. Instead of missing the action, you're propelled to the shore with great speed and enjoyment.
