Trying to get Andrew Sullivan to publish your most over-the-top email about the greatness that is Obama. If I weren't swamped with work, I would be all over this. Here's a quick attempt:
"It seems improbable--dare I say providential?--that of all times, it is during Holy Week that Obama has reached out to heal our nation's soul. No, he cannot redeem us by himself. But he can be a vehicle of that redemption, an agent of restoration. Through him, America's original sin can at long last be overcome, and the better angels of our nature, restored. Yes, he can. Yes, we can. Yes, we can."
This shit is shockingly easy to write.
Can't agree with that last part. C.L.'s blurb has a breezy genius to it that's beyond my poor powers.
I imagine that getting Sullivan to run your email would make one feel like John Candy in Splash after Penthouse finally publishes one of his letters.
But if you don't want to actually tug on Sullivan's chain (so to speak), I'd suggest another fun game:
Before an Obama event takes place, write a short paragraph praising Obama's performance in the most over-the-top manner possible. Then, after Obama does his thing, pluck a graph from Sullivan's (or some other apologist's) "analysis" and email them to friends, daring them to guess which is real and which is Memorex.
So no one gets the idea that this is a partisan thing, I'll cop to doing this from time to time with friends concerning Mitt Romney and certain of his more, um, enthusiastic supporters during the earlier portion of the primary season.
