My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.

P[ete] S[tark--senior and powerful Congressional Democrat]: You’re going to tell us lies like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re going to fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President’s amusement.
Note to all GOP candidates for anything: if you want my support, if you want me to walk neighborhoods for you and work phone banks, MAKE A COMMERCIAL FEATURING THIS IDIOT AND CALL HIM OUT!
Take off the damn gloves, and mix it up with these guys. Throw into the commercial clips of Harry Reid declaring surrender and Dick Durbin comparing our troops to Nazis and Pol Pot. Make the case that there's a reason the country hasn't trusted the Democrats with the national security for forty years, and that that reason hasn't gone away.
As Mark Steyn pointed out in the same interview:
. . . it’s not possible to have civilized political discourse in a functioning two-party democracy if that’s one party’s contribution to the debate.
So STOP TRYING!! You cannot be the idiot trying to fight by Marquis of Queensbury Rules when the other guy pulls a rhetorical knife; or be the damn fool who brings a knife to a gunfight.
When a wise man enters into an argument with a fool, he merely glorifies the fool and diminishes himself. It's the same way with the lunatic fringe . . .er, Democrats.
Don't waste your time being civil or trying to be "above the ugliness." Go after these guys, and do it in a direct and unmistakeable way. And, if you can manage to throw in some humor, do it.
But do it. And soon.
And then I'll decide who to support.
