A Toe-Sucker's Guide To GOP Victory In November


<pimp>

October 23, 2006 -- WITH only two weeks left 'til Election Day, Republicans won't save themselves with phony optimism - pathetic claims that, somehow, they're mounting a comeback. They need to sound a note of alarm and fill the airwaves with specifics of exactly what will happen if the Democrats triumph.

But inside-baseball talk about a Nancy Pelosi speakership won't do the job. The GOP needs to focus on the concrete ways in which a Democratic victory would threaten our safety.

Here's one possible ad: We see and hear a wiretapped conversation, with a terrorist revealing his worst plans to his associate - and, inadvertently, to government eavesdroppers, too. Then, when he's about to spill the beans on when and where the next attack is going to come, the line should go dead, with a dial tone, with a machine voice saying "This wiretap terminated in the name of privacy rights by the Democratic U.S. Congress."

The announcer can then say, "If the Democrats win, the National Security Agency will never be able to listen in as the terrorists are plotting to attack us."

1. So, toe-sucker's solution is to blatantly lie.
Ho-hum.

2. I was thinking the same thing
"Republicans need to get out there and do what they do best -- spin, obfuscate, LIE!"

6. We couldn't be less safe if Charlie Manson was in charge.
Dick is one among the terminally clueless within the chattering classes.
