The Undertow

At about 8:50pm, thousands of people in the Fleet Center tried to start the wave. It didn’t work. Less than once around.

There is only one way to read this. The Democrats are ready to get serious about winning this election (and about earning the respect of the person in the next seat over). Giant sponge fingers? Sure. Buttons from head to toe? I’m in. Weird chants and out of context yelps of joy? What the heck.

But the wave?

Not this time, baby. Not this time.

Concentration is important!
