Digby’s collapse-inducing optimism surprises me

Digby despairs:

I'm not saying the Democrats can't win. It shouldn't even be a question with bush at 25% and the wrong track number at 81. But I assumed after all we know about how the Republicans operate, they'd pull out all the stops to take McCain down hard, taking nothing for granted. It looks as though I'm wrong about that --- at best they are dithering --- and it has me really, really worried for the first time.

I have to admit, it surprises me that Digby thought angels of Democratic soft funding would come together magically just because ‘they had to’, or that her anxiety level about the election was as low as it seems to have been. Hopefully her panicky reaction will settle towards a very steady moderate anxiety, which is what I try to maintain; and hopefully she will realize that people can’t make things happen by declaring those happenings ‘necessary’; it doesn’t work for Bush and it won’t work for Digby or George Soros, either.

Learning and practice, learning and practice. Everything humans do takes learning and practice.
