Politics of the Day (3)

ImpeachBlair.org (Via Mefi). The Dems are so out of it they can't even get a similar effort together for Bush, which is fairly amazing (if expected).

We all know there will be some kind of October surprise - simple tactical thinking would tell the Dems to plan a counter-surprise, decoy, misdirection, intimidation, bluff, threat, blah, blah; they're incapable of that as well. We all know that the great civil rights movements of the 20th century are based on symbolic nonviolent resistance; the Dems can't get this together either. The best they can come up with is to challenge Bush to weekly debates.

Yeah, I know I'm kind of jumping to conclusions about what Dems may or may not want - I'd just like to make the point that, imho, their capacity for strategic thinking is probably less than my kid sister's. Actually, that's saying a lot, since she can kick my ass.

We don't have the power to impeach Bush. The Dems would have to controll Congress first. Yet another reason why the elections this year are so important.
