39. LOL

 

Thanks, I guess

It's sad that I post this shit for free on DU while the hustlers who give the Mittster bad advice for a living get paid out the wazoo.

I've wondered before whether Democratic strategists are better at their jobs than Republican strategists. Perhaps not, but I'm not so sure. Maybe they appear better because they have some advantages (a friendlier, more populist message and, forgive the DU heresy, a more favorable media climate).

But I don't think anybody can argue that in 2008, the McCain campaign was severely outclassed by the Obama team. Even Charlie Kraut admitted that Obama's convention speech was the product of truly brilliant political minds.

I think something similar might happen this time around. The anti-establishment right tends to portray Republican strategists as hucksters and self-interested hacks who join losing campaigns in order to build personal profile so they can then get choice lobbying jobs raging against the Democratic machine they had no hope or genuine intention of defeating. Meg Whitman's candidacy was a prime example. A whole lot of people got paid off of that quixotic train wreck.
