I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Democrat Election Plan: They're Worse Than Us

I detailed the clueless election strategy of the Republicans, but that was not to imply the Democrats were set to clean up with their brilliant plan. If ever there was a party out of touch it has to be the Democrats.

Early on they placed their bets on a campaign focused on the corruption of the Republicans in general. The big problem with this strategy is it ignores the issues that are important to voters and it will be viewed as the pot calling the kettle black. With Representative William J. Jefferson, Louisiana Democrat having been video taped taking a cash payoff, the Democrat strategy of exposing Republican corruption looks like a non starter, but they won't realize this until it's too late. The more comical aspect to their reliance on such a strategy is the blind willingness to ignore their own weakness in this area and plow on with statements such as Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
"They are different scales," Mr. Emanuel said. "One is a party outlook and operation; the other is an individual's action. They have institutional corruption."
Loosely translated he is saying "I'm rubber, your glue, what you say bounces off me and sticks on you." Few people are naive enough to think politicians are beyond the temptations of human nature. Most agree they are more prone to succumbing to such temptations by virtue of their arrogance. The sad thing is we are going to have to vote for the Bozo party or the Pee Wee Herman party. Not somthing I relish. The race will turn on which gets a clue first. Time is running short, it could happen but don't bet on it.
