Despite our best efforts not to blink, the nation’s economic crisis continues. It was a good plan, but there was a problem in the execution.
So what went wrong?
Too many people blinked.
John McCain for one. (As Sarah Palin’s running mate, you’d think he would be more supportive. But I’m sure tonight’s debate will be worth the extra period of economic crisis.)
Should we try again?
Well, as the McCain/Palin ticket is quick to remind us, if something doesn’t work, keep doing it, even if it takes more than eight years.
What we need is a surge of non-blinkers.
Mark your calendars, set up your Outlook reminders and alarms, and tell everyone:
The Don’t Blink Surge will begin on Tuesday, September 30 at 7pm Pacific Time (10pm Eastern Time).
Note: This time occurs after sunset on the West coast, so Muslims celebrating Ramadan and Jews celebrating Rosh Hashanah should be able to participate.
Together we can turn this economy around. All we need to do is keep our eyes open.
