14. I wouldn't doubt that for a nanosecond!!!

Some other DUer elsewhere here reminded about the Mormons' "retroactive baptism" thing, and how maybe that same mentality might have governed the "romney resigned retroactively" mess that ed gillespie made this morning. Wonder if he came up with that or the response strategists had already been kicking it around in the back room somewhere.

Worth considering. It's always good to have an understanding of the enemy, what makes him tick, and how he responds. Examine their backgrounds and, therefore, their conditioning - either by being taught it or experiencing it for themselves. Keep in mind their motivation, and how basic it is. Shit - and every time you have to factor some extremist religion or cult into the equation, that ALWAYS leads to bigger and nastier messes. ALWAYS try to get into the mindset of the enemy. Helps guide you toward their weaknesses and prepares you to spot their mistakes. They're as invincible as Goliath and Achilles' heel.

BUT EVEN SO: ALSO consider this at all times: We do NOT have this thing won yet.
