Just because it has been revealed, in no uncertain terms and so as to remove any sliver of doubt, that Republican nominee by default (really, who else did they have?) Mitt Romney's loathsomeness is mutual -- he thinks you're vile and disgusting, too -- Nevada Democrats must not get complacent.
For one thing, Romney doesn't deserve to lose Nevada. He deserves to lose Nevada by a soul-crushing margin that will humiliate not only him but anyone who has campaigned, supported and/or apologized for the lies, race-baiting, class warfare and condescending claptrap that is his presidential campaign (i.e., Brian Sandoval).
More importantly, Nevada Democrats need to show up at the polls in huge numbers, not merely to rid America's political landscape of Willard once and for all, but also to vote for Shelley Berkley, Steven Horsford and John Oceguera. No, your Gleaner has no interest in any of those people as, you know, people. Their individual political careers are neither here nor there. Seriously, don't care. Really, if potted plants were running as Democrats against Republicans the need to support the foliage would be no less urgent (and maybe easier?).
It's just that the Tea Party mustn't control Congress, s'all. (More on this in CityLife later this week btw.)
Now is not the time for Nevada Obama supporters to dance on Romney's grave. Now is the time to toss the rest of the Republicans in after him.
