As you may know by now, I am deeply frustrated with the group of defeatist bloggers, opinion makers, and pundits who seem more than happy that Obama won so that they can secure book deal, issue snarky comments in retaliation for their guy not getting picked for something or other reasons known only to them. Well, since this Axis Of Defeatism doesn't even offer a blueprint for victory, instead hoping that hiding under the bedsheets and asking "exit questions", confident that they have enablers and defenders in their corner to fight back any critics, will work in 2016, I guess it falls to others to do so.
In that regard, I may have found a person who does have a plan, and it kinda makes sense: infiltrate Hollywood and Pop Culture as much as possible. And Breitbart makes the case better than I ever could.
OK. But how?
The Democratic Party resonates on the Internet because it resonates in pop culture. The Democratic Party resonates in pop culture because it has been committed to dominating it for over a generation.
Democrats are celebrities, rock stars, magazine covers and stadium concerts. Republicans are a small list of famous people who have to make public excuses for their affiliation.
Democrats throw parties, get models to show up, and Red Bull and Stoli pick up the tab. Republicans feature a no-host bar hoping an astronaut from the Mercury mission stops by.
Democrats pull off a star-studded, entertainment-laden Obama acceptance speech at Invesco Field. Republicans get a black dude to wear red, white and blue and perform a 1985-era patriotic rap song dressed as Uncle Sam.
The spectacular Will.I.Am song and video, "Yes We Can," could not be duplicated by Republicans if T. Boone Pickens airdropped his fortune on the RNC headquarters.
