86. "Think, baby. Think."
The Democrats should brand themselves against the conservative movement with a line like that. And then run national ads about what happens -- in the gulf, in the economy, in Afghanistan and Iraq -- when you go charging Yosemite Sam-like, hoppin' and "Yee-Haw"in' with guns a-blazin' toward any major decision without actually taking time to think things through.

This is what the country has come to - a party that still has the maturity and foresight to sit down to discuss any given course of action, and another party of pin-striped infants who bang buzzword spoons on their FOX brand high chairs, who can't see past what they "Want! Now!", who believe in the consumer survey model for world-changing decisions as if a comment card from a truck stop in Dallas should drive international policy.
