How Can David (Democrats) Beat Goliath (GOP)?

David Democrat will beat GOP Goliath same way as before
David Democrat bears a simple sling 
capable at flinging stones at a vast area of Goliath body mass
Every hit the supple Democrat makes 
imbeds a stone in Goliath GOP flaccid flesh
The untold story of the original is that Goliath of old
was prone to itch
Continual scratching at his wounds induced
a veritable frenzy of anxious agony
The GOP Goliath will first kneel then fall prostrate
from well-aimed stones from David Democrat's sling
Each stone will bear the simple legend TRUTH
Each vision of the hapless GOP Giant conveys to the people
bully
bad cop
crypto-fascist
anti-democratic
obstructor of justice
And fnally as this sad GOP generation grows old
a thin but growing shaft of reason
will emerge and start to right things
So for now we aim our stones
and trust the narrative

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
