I’ve always had a fondness for rabbits. Such adorable little things they are. And magic, too, has held a mystery, a fascination for me and many others. A good magic show can mesmerize an audience. So many magic tricks are a puzzle that people, in awed thoughts, try to figure out. Houdini was the best at magic.

And this article is about rabbits, magic – and us. The Democratic party — and that includes you — has been pulling rabbits out of hats for quite a while now. We did it in 2020. We did it in the Georgia special election.

We did it in the midterms. How good it feels to say that. How proud we should all be. We keep doing it. We keep pulling rabbits out of hats, dumbfounding the pundits who appear stunned, often asking the question how did the democrats DO this? How did they, against all odds, pull the rabbit out of the hat?

The truth is much magic is an illusion. What often appears during magic shows to be pure magic usually is not. The tricks merely involve skill, daring, and determination. And that is true of our magic too. There is nothing otherworldly about what we do. We simply worked together, coming together to use our skills to vanquish the opponent.

And now there is the Georgia special election. It’s coming up fast. I ask you to do whatever you can. Phone banking is obviously vastly needed. But if that’s not for you, please join together and do what you can. We need to pull this one last rabbit out of the hat before the new year.

New years mean new beginnings. Would it not be wonderful to have — as our new beginning yet another magic trick? We keep fooling them — over and over. The best magicians are like that. The best magicians can convince one of magic when really all it is, is determination and focus — lots of focus — a focus few have. But we do.
