6. Let's not laugh too hard and potentially distract us from GOP tactics
No matter how weak they may appear now, they are WAY BETTER at GRINDING out the win and getting their base out. We should have learned that by now after 2000 and 2004. As laughingly lame as they look, and no matter how stupid they appear, they have retained power 6 years longer than they should have to the great detriment of this country. Pay attention and DON'T Laugh at their tactics!! THEY WORK!! We have to counter that!
