64. THIS is why the republicans win.

Smart, with political savvy. Can produce slick ads that resonate.

Sadly, the democratic attempts can't hold a candle to them. Why is that? We have smart, savvy ad people that can make slick ads... Don't we? At most ours are merely adequate.

Americans have short attention spans, so you have to grab them and keep them. The ads need to be MOVING, making people see the stark contrasts. The Lincoln Project ads do just that.

I appreciate all the help we can get. But we need to win because WE can put forth a reasonable and believable argument for Biden, OTHER than "he is NOT donald trump". I do NOT want to have to thank the republicans for defeating their own candidate. (Although if that is what happens, I will GLADLY accept the results.)

WE could, and should do better.
