I definitely wouldn't want to interpret the Carville quote as a
singular address form either-- he's much too canny. If someone
appealed to you as the lone struggler out there fighting the good
fight, how likely would you be to send the money that is the whole
point of the request? Clearly he wants to contextualize the recipient
as one of the good-fighting gang who will prevail, and can only
prevail in fact, through mobilizing superior numbers. Now if that
ain't a plural...
ps. that said I definitely agree with Mr. Carville:
up with ___ ___, and down with nasty old ___ ___!
