Dear Gloomy Gus:

An excerpt from Mark Levin's show last night, for the people who see the desperate campaign against McCain/Palin not as the last gasp of a dying media industry, but as proof of a plummeting sky:

If we don't engage now, four and a half weeks out, then when are we going to engage? When it's too late? I can hear the calls when they start passing this crap [that Obama wants]: “Mark, what can we do?” You can't do anything. Don't you see? It's rigged. The courts no longer uphold the Constitution and limit the power of the elected branches. The elected branches keep pushing people onto the courts who will support what they're doing. The Constitution is being shredded every single day. You're losing liberty every single day. What do you want me to do? What can I say? If you're not going to get engaged, no matter what kind of stupid comments John McCain makes... If you don't get engaged -- not for John McCain, for yourself, for your children, for your future -- then what can I possibly tell you?

I'm going to be honest with you, when I drive around my neighborhood, I see these Obama stickers everywhere. It's like being in Peking -- I guess they call it Bejing now -- when Chairman Mao was around. The photos are everywhere, the stickers are on the cars, the signs are on the lawns... What the hell is going on here? And a lot of you look at that and say, “Oh. It's over.” I look at that, and you know what I say? It's only over if I let it be over. They only roll me if I let them roll me. Screw their yard signs. They're still driving around with Kerry/Edwards stickers on their cars, and they're proud of it, these morons.

Forget the pundits. Forget the polls. Think for yourself and say what you mean. This is a good start.
