25. "alluding to the gravity" is extremely important
One of the tactics the GOP and their whores are using is to treat this story in a "wink-wink" manner.

The whore Doyle McManus has been calling it a "summer squall" story, just something to fill up the slow news period.

The dems seem to be aware of this tactic. One TV program had a discussion b/w a DNC spokesman and an RNC spokesman. The RNC guy was laughing it up, he literally laughed at every single question, and smiled through the whole thing. The DNC guy refused to join in the hilarity, kept a sober demeanor. Appropriately so, considering the people dying every day.

The dems have to get the message out: "this is important"
