A Politico article on the panicky democrats reveals this Axelrod quote I missed

“We’re familiar with this,” Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, told The New York Times a few days ago. “And I’m sure between now and Nov. 4 there will be another period of hand-wringing and bed-wetting. It comes with the territory.”

and to make it even sweeter, Donna picks on it

Donna Brazile, Al Gore’s campaign manager in 2000, is used to this “bed-wetting” phase of the campaign. “Democrats are notorious for whining when things go bad,” she said. “A presidential campaign is not for the fainthearted.”

Ah, good! She must still have diapers then from her previous victories….

Other interesting statements, not having to do with urinary functions:

If Obama loses in November, however, Shrum believes it is unlikely he will get a second chance.

“If we lose, people will say we never had better circumstances to win,” Shrum said. “It would be traumatic. A lot of people would say that we should have nominated Hillary. And she would be the overwhelming favorite to win the nomination in 2012.”

OK, I like this one. And when not into night bodyli functions, Brazile actually manages to criticize The One a little

She also worries that the Obama campaign is “insular.” She said: “It doesn’t feel like a family with all voices at the table are as diverse as the party itself. It still feels like a primary campaign with some additions. It doesn’t feel like all hands on deck.”

“People still have lingering doubts about Obama as to whether he can be trusted as commander in chief,” Brazile said. “I thought his campaign would have more meat on the bones by now. They did great job at the convention, but it was short-lived.”

She said that at times “Obama’s voice is strong and articulate, but people don’t feel attached to him, and they have got to feel attached to him. That would answer some racial aspects that simmer below the radar and sometimes percolate over the top.”

Oh, Donna! Stop the hate!

She has the blame packed and ready to go:

“but I still think he can pull this off.”

And if he doesn’t?

“If he doesn’t, then Obama didn’t lose,” she said. “The country just wasn’t ready.”

Hear that country? You don’t want to be called….unready, do you now?
