    But when they keep testing my patience, they lose my respect and trust.

    Weather Dude had a diary up the other day about the sudden troll infestation. People should take it seriously. There have been lots of users who have invested 90% of their comments into spreading the "Obama Lost Horribly" meme or "Obama's Debate Loss Will Prove to Be Catastrophic" meme.

    Then if you try to question it or provide some kind of reasonable response, they or their enablers pop up and say you've got your head in the sand.

    I find it odd, because I have yet to run into any of my Democratic friends, or people I know as Obama supporters, who invest even 0.01% of their energy into trying to paint the Obama campaign as "flailing" or "sinking."

      None of my Democratic friends are investing their energy into the idea that Obama is failing or sinking.  They were disappointed by the first debate, but to a one, they look forward to this Tuesday with hope in their hearts.

      Hope is never unchallenged. Hope scares the cynical and outrages the negative. Hope is always a risky business. It demands a lot of courage.  I've learned this in my life, far outside of politics. But when I can pull myself up and out of despair or disappointment, and BELIEVE in the better, I am always rewarded.

      So now I'm going to tuck myself in, with unabashed hopes for a better tomorrow. I wish you the same, and sweet dreams.
