37. I've got a pretty good handle on what The Plan is

The Plan boils down to 3 things:

1. Keep policy positions extremely vague up to the convention so the Democrats can't pin Rmoney down on anything before then. Travel around the country spouting bland pablum and badmouthing Obama, to build up name recognition linkage as "the alternative to that bad bad Barack Hussein Obama." The candidate will loudly announce his identity, announce that he can do a better job than Obama, and rub shoulders with the crowd. Maybe sing America the Beautiful if the audience is especially senile and/or deaf.

2. Lie as needed about any muckrakers or political enemies since the "fair and balanced" media will bend over backwards to give them the final word on any topic. Be selective about which media firms have access to the candidate.

3. Starting in September, blanket the airwaves with non-stop anti-Obama propaganda, 24/7. Between Rmoney's campaign funds and the SuperPAC money, they'll be able to outspend Obama's sources 3-1, and that's going to make a big difference.

I think it's actually a fairly solid plan, and based on what went down in Wisconsin, I don't see how anyone could think it can't possibly work. One thing that could really derail it is if Rmoney gets nailed with something highly improper, perhaps even illegal, before September. That's dangerously close to what's happening now, which is why they're a bit flustered -- they may have to come up with a plan B in the next 2 months, and they aren't prepared for that. Yet.
