Wonderful piece by Mike-
In recent weeks, Democrats have made progress with their leadership management skills. Here is what they have figured out: When your opposition is burning down, don't get involved. Sit back and allow it to happen.. for example, when the GOP floats the story that Obama is building concentration camps to house conservative critics, just hush, sit quietly and let them tell that story. When Glen Beck goes on the air to tell us about those new Obama concentration camps, don't interrupt him even when it's clear that those buildings he's afraid of are probably mental health facilities.Or when their party leader, Sarah Palin suggests that Obama's health care reform plan includes a death panel that will condemn elderly Americans to die if they require too much medical care, remember;sit quietly and let the lunatics loose on themselves. In fact, be jubilant when other GOP party leadership stands besides Palin and endorses her while she rambles incoherently about this imaginary goulish new death panel.
The Democrats have recently figured out that the art of sitting silently when the opposition is so vulnerable requires incredible discipline. When gun-toting healthcare teabagers are shwoing up at town hall meetings to shout, scream, and appear unbalanced, Democrats should make sure to schedule as many town hall meetings as possible. Alllot it to unfold on the nightly news with regularity.
Public approval ratings of the new GOP are falling to levels that compete with those of Dick Cheney and Ann Coulter.
I am happy to read these artilces every now and then. It reminds me that I am not alone and that there is intelligence somewhere here in America.
