  •  While Blue Books and moral arguments sound (9+ / 0-)

    like a strategy for progressives to pursue, this assumes a level playing field. And the playing field is decidedly not level. Sunday talk shows are skewed right. Truth and propagandistic lies are given equal weight in the media. Talk radio has been dominated for years by right wing hate speech. I can just hear Rush Limbaugh equating the Little Blue Book with Chairman Mao's Little Red Book. And you can bet that that will stick!

    I'm not sure how progressives can win this propaganda war with such low visibility, unless progressive ideals can be imbued with some forbidden cachet.
