39. Lets not be like the Tea Party

If the first thing you do when finding out someone is Republican is to think they are an asshole, then you will look like the asshole.

There are lots of Republican assholes out there, but there are also plenty of nice people who also identify and vote Republican. Maybe they don't take politics too seriously, are misinformed on the issues, have Fox News as their primary news source or remember when the Republican party used to be somewhat sane.

We would do a lot better with these people if we can find some common ground instead of trying to prove them wrong all the time.

Don't expect them to go away from the dark side right away, but if you show that the Democratic party shares some of their values, they will more likely consider voting for our guys next election.
