5. when they tell us to be "civil"...

...they really want to show us up as weak and uncertain of our convictions.
here's how it works:

perhaps the saddest thing is to see Democratic leaders rolling over and playing along with this handicapped position. surely they know better? no? maybe not? is this really the best we can do?

we've been playing catch-up since 1968.

most people agree with Democratic positions on important issues, but the Republicans have used some very clever strategies to taint the Democrats as untrustworthy. one side argues policy positions, the other presents itself as strong and morally clear while spewing ad-hominem attacks. guess who wins?
