With McCain’s campaign suffering from political schizophrenia, Jeff and Glenn channel Freud and put the situation on the couch, dissecting the “right” side of the brain, a tenuous and incomplete alliance with the conservative religious evangelicals vs. the left side of the campaign’s brain, the more socially libertarian and fiscally conservative. In breaking down the campaign, Jeff and Glenn review the following:
- How does McCain build a winning coalition in under 30 days that’s true to whatever basic values he has?
- What would a 4 or 8 point swing in the polls mean to McCain’s chances?
- How right is the right, and can they win even in losing? (think of all the fundraising and organizing they can do off a Democratic sweep)
- How do fractures in the campaign effect the way McCain will handle the next debate? Will he “rip him a new ____hole,” as he reportedly told campaign workers according to today’s New York Times. Or will he offer serious economic policy prescriptions, as suggested by Republican Senator Lindsay Graham?
And finally, the most important question of all… Why aren’t Jeff and Glenn hosting a morning talk show yet? Today’s broadcast of Morning Joe on MSNBC practically brought the co-hosts to blows — it was more uncomfortable than watching a McCain-Obama debate. Talk about cranky. Tell us how you think we can make this happen — we’re asking for your help in promoting our show to your friends and family — and give us some ideas for the show’s name…something other than Glenn and Jeff in the morning…
This is your wake up call, America. A new day is dawning and it’s time to get moving.
Listen to the current installment of PoliTalk and get yourself informed, inspired, entertained and ready for the day… spread the word… tell two friends, and so on and so on…
