I had to make a couple of brief comments, in the wake of the media genuflection over Sarah Palin's delivery of the speech written for her at the GOP convention.
Democrats need to learn how to play this game.
How is it that we are playing defense from attacks by Palin? Is this the other side of the looking glass?
Once again, Democrats are afraid to attack the GOP because we let them define the terms. We are supposed to mention John McCain/war hero, every time we have the audacity to question his foreign policy experience. And now, instead of McCain having to answer for putting an unknown, inexperienced, religious zealot within a heartbeat from the presidency, we are supposed to feel that her inexperience is somehow equivalent to Obama's? On any level?
Why, because we are afraid to attack a self-professed barracuda for alleged fear of offending Hillary supporters?
This is reading like a bad joke.
Let me make clear what the Democratic strategy has to be from this day forward.
One final thing...if you want 'community organizer' to not go the way of 'trial lawyers,' maybe the Dems could do what I saw suggested at Crooks & Liars...remind folks that Jesus was a community organizer.
Oh, by the way, so was the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And Susan B. Anthony.
Not to mention the countless people, in all the various service groups in communities all over America that exist to help people in all walks of life get empowered.
Since when do those who register voters (they're community organizers of the very best, most patriotic stripe) deserve to be tarred by a Rovian dirty trick?
