The GOP is perennially stuck in a 1988 mindset. A Democrat running for president is supposed to stand there like Michael Dukakis (or, in 2004, John Kerry) and take his beating like a man. When a Bill Clinton or a Barack Obama decide to administer the punishment rather than accept it, Republicans all whine and cry about the “liberal media” and the “biased polling” and the “dirty tactics” and whatever other excuse they come up with for their crappy candidate and crappier message.
Hey, losers. If you can’t nominate somebody who knows how to run a decent campaign, maybe you should blame the people who nominated him. Yourselves.
