Michelle Malkin, the “90-Pound Mama Grizzly,” Offers Pointers to the Romney Campaign

Michelle Malkin, whom Sarah Palin has called a “90-pound mama grizzly” has some spot-on pointers for the Romney campaign in this brief stand-up interview.

Namely (in my terms, and with some added points of my own) —

Fight!  Be assertive, quick, and responsive to the vile distraction-of-the-week tactics of the Left.  Do not run a tepid, polite, soft-spoken, platitudinous, Dole/McCain-style campaign unless your goal is to lose graciously (again).

If no one on your staff is a competent fighter, get help from others who are.  Use Newt Gingrich or other erstwhile primary opponents who showed they could build voter turnout.  Newt said he’d help, and he could write your speeches or deliver rebuttals on your behalf.  Look at the turnout he generated in South Carolina and Georgia.  Isn’t that what we need to win?

And do stop calling Obama a “nice guy”.  You’re not winning points with anyone, and you’re discouraging turnout.  It’s a fighting spirit like Malkin’s that builds turnout and wins elections!
