2. it's the framing, stupid
(I'm not calling the poster stupid, mind you.)

The number one propaganda message from the RNC this year has been that Democrats are stupid, spineless, confused, lost, scared, yada yada. They have totally sold this message. It is the national opinion.

I don't believe it, and I won't repeat it. I won't be part of the propaganda campaign. I will push back against that campaign with everything I've got. The Democrats I know and the Democrats I watch on television are tough, righteous, principled people -- the protectors of democracy, liberty, and human rights.

My message to these nay-sayers: come and say it to my face. You can expect to have your verbal ass kicked.
