76. I couldn't agree more with your point.
And it was a problem that goes back to at least 1976 or so. Ever since Richard Vigurie first developed the strategy involving direct mail and used it to raise money for right wing causes and then later again with Talk Radio and finally with alliances with Clear Channel and Faux, the right-wing has always hammered the Democratic Party on that kind of repetitive, getting the message out outreach and has been far more niche market aware. The shift, though, is amazing. Just as the Dems were caught flat-footed in the past, this time it was the Republicans. Starting with Dean and in this past election with Obama blew the Republicans out the door with internet strategies. President Obama is concerned about his Blackberry; John McCain doesn't do e-mail.
