Even the flaccids are coming back to the base

I caught a fair amount of crappe yesterday for posting a clip of the Hanson Brothers from the movie Slapshot as a get-out-the-vote motivator. The biggest flaccid of them all---Monsieur Allahpundit---has been leading the sack cloth and ashes brigade for awhile now, spinning everything as pessimistically as possibly, up to and including giving the bravest and smartest and funniest Senator in American political history the benefit of the doubt.

So what does he do now that it's election day?

Why post a motivator clip from Rocky IV.

So I'm running it again. Sue me, but this is the greatest scene in a sports movie EVAH.

Days like today I need a good laugh.

UPDATE: WHOA! Unintentional bad karma, dude!

UPDATE DEUX: To reflect the complex intellectual trek of Axis Sully, Wuzzadem has updated his Andrew Sullivan Emoticon Alert Level to include "Unbothered by Buchananite Antisemitism." Because, you know, the Joooooooos invented that whole circumcision thing and really now, has there been a greater crime committed against humanity than that?

If I weren't wearing the sack cloth, I wouldn't need the motivator.

Hey---after today, sackcloth will be the new black.

And ashes do wonders hiding those persistent dandruff issues...

Buchanan was against the war from the start -- he was only for it once we were in, more as a "support the troops" thing.

Relentless pessimism. It's such a great motivator.

Give me the Hanson brothers anyday.
