Burlington Bashing -- Kurtz
Repeat after me: "Failed governor of a small state."

That was the first Bush administration's mantra against the 1992 Democratic presidential nominee. The Bush team's strategy was to paint Arkansas as a sad, pathetic backwater, thereby casting Bill Clinton as a small-time rube who would be out of his depth in the Oval Office.

It did not succeed brilliantly.

snip......

Well, it's happening again.

Not about Arkansas. This time, it's Vermont.

The first glimpse of the strategy appears on the cover of National Review, against an autumnal backdrop of a rural farmhouse. The headline captures the nuances of the argument contained therein:

"HELL."
