Oh man, you have no idea how bad it is. Or maybe you do. My representative is the author of the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act, which is designed to overcome the flaws in electronic voting to make voting using these electronic machines honest. I argued with his staff a number of times that the name of the thing sucks and they should call it the Honest Voting bill, or the Count All Votes Act. Who would vote against honest voting or counting all the votes? No, they call it the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act. My rep has a doctorate in physics and is a former five-time Jeopardy champion, but academic brilliance doesn't always translate into every area, I suppose. Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act. Dumb dumb dumb.

Can't fix what Bush broke until you toss out his hammer and the rest of his tools.

Takes some doin'. I don't see nothin' doin'. D'you?

Are you sure they are even trying to have a message? I thought they were just hanging tight hoping that this administration would destroy the country so they can win next election.


Well played, sir!

DBK has summed up the whole problem in a nutshell. The Bush administration is full of experts at Doublespeak: The Clean Skies Initiative (to hide a program aimed at making our skies dirtier) is just one example. The Democrats need to learn how to coin these phrases that resonate with the regular people. At least in the case of the Democrats these more nimble and relevant phrases might actually be representing the true meaning rather than obfuscating a devious purpose as the Republicans love to do. Why don't we ever learn how to do things as well as they do?

How about:

We're NOT them!

We value kids, education and seniors.

You'd think that this would be a no brainer.

Naw, it's not about saying, "We're not them." Fact is, every political consultant in the country knows how the marketing works. It's not only not a mystery, it's obvious. They all know they're selling toothpaste. Tiny Revolution has a posting on this up right now.
