Advantage of Anxiety
But beware of Anger
For Democrats, the growing debate
over how to vanquish the Teabaggers is analogous
to a family fracas over how to best get rid of your sister’s latest
Do you repeatedly point out all the perceived flaws of the new suitor,
hoping that they resonate?
Or do you insist that the new guy is just like the ex, and suggest that
repeating the pattern will only lead to misery?...
Many Democrats have chosen to run against the Tea Party - as opposed to
the Republicans in Washington
- by repeatedly pointing out positions they believe general
election voters would not cotton to, like privatizing
Social Security, abolishing entire federal departments, upending
certain civil rights laws and outlawing abortion,

If it's for the poor or the niggers, fuck 'em - that's the Teabagger
...but of course, our brain-dead
elected morons can't figure how to list the facts so in November,
our worse-than-brain-dead voters might say, "Maybe we should
give the new guys a try."
Of course, the Dems will also fail to mention that the
super-rich are funding this "grass roots movement,"
but why should they bother to murky up the situation with some facts
and some common sense?
It's much easier stand there and cry and wet your pants
than it is to fight back.
Since the poor and the middle class WANT to stangle themselves,
there's a part of me
...I won't even go there.
But how can our team win if our side refuses to take the
