Republican desperation

The right-wing is trying desperately to boost the GOP to an improbable victory on 11/7. They have come up with a full-press campaign for the GOPers before Nov., complete with slogans.
From the American Spectator:

Stay the course. Don't change horses in midstream. Let them finish the job they've started. It's always darkest just before dawn.

Or maybe, less pithily but more positively, this: On second thought, look around your hometown, because life may be going better than you realized.

Republicans trying desperately to hold their congressional majorities still lack a simple message that resonates with voters who usually or at least often lean right, but who this year are disaffected. They need something like (but better than) one of the examples above, something that gets voters to say, "Okay, dammit, I may not be happy with them, but I'll give these guys one more chance. The Democrats sure haven't given me anything to vote for, and at least these Republicans are in my general vicinity on the issues.... Yeah, dammit, okay."

"It's always darkest just before dawn? This is getting very sad... The best that the right is hoping for from voters is "yeah, dammit, okay; I'll vote Republican"? Dire straits for the GOP.
