Living In Denial, Or Alternately, If Only We Were As Mean As The Republicans!
There are a few token Republicans quoted, but the whole piece is chock full of Democratic hatchet men bemoaning the fact that the Donks keep getting beat by Republicans because as the old saying goes: “Nice guys finish last.” Here’s a representative sampling:
“Republicans don’t mind running an ad that’s entirely false, but Democrats have never learned, and I’m not sure many of them want to learn, how to play that kind of politics,” said Robert Shrum, an adviser to several Democratic presidential campaigns. NARAL had to pull the ad, he said, because “they weren’t getting support from any substantial quarter.”
Democratic strategist Chris Lehane, who like Shrum favors hardball politics, protested that “we Democrats bring a well-thumbed copy of Marquess of Queensberry Rules while the other side unsheaths their bloody knives, with a predictable outcome.
…Some Democratic operatives say their trouble is congenital. “The problem is our politically impractical insistence on always residing on the moral high ground,” said Jim Jordan, who was a longtime adviser to Kerry. “A large part of our ethos goes to what we perceive to be moral superiority and the sad truth is in politics that’s sometimes inconvenient.”
This is hilarious! We live in an age where the President is regularly accused of being behind 9/11, going to war in Iraq in order to enrich his oil buddies, and is called a Nazi with regularity. Beloved Democratic loser Paul Hackett recently called Bush a “son-of-a-b*tch,” a “chickenhawk,” and “un-American.” The current darling of the Democratic Party, moonbat Cindy Sheehan, is running around on an “impeachment tour” practically accusing Bush of murdering her son: “I want to ask the president, why did you kill my son?”
Meanwhile, the WAPO is quoting these Democratic operatives who’re bemoaning the fact that they’re playing by “Marquess of Queensberry Rules.” They could not be deeper in denial…
