    The right-wing knows how to organize and to play politics as a team sport.

    Thus they have Ann Coulter and those like her pushing the Overton Windows ever rightward .....

    They have the Hannities and the Bill O'Reilly's to spread the hate and fan the flames .....

    They have their so-called "intellectuals" like George Will and (gag me) anyone from the AEI to spout what sounds like scholarly right-wing philosphy.

    And they have P.J. O'Rourke to do his right-wing Mark Twain impersonation.

    And of course they have Faux News and Wolf Blitzer and Candy Crowley and the rest of the RW "news" whores.

    They've got it DOWN.  It's all about a division of labour.

    We keep trying to come up with the ONE message, or the ONE leader that will do it for us, and we are completely missing the point.  

    It's about covering all the demographics, and creating an impression of a "wall of truth" which represents your point of view at all the different frequencies of life.

    Democrats need to get some freaking leadership and figure this out and MAKE IT HAPPEN.     This is a HUGE part of what is wrong with the Democrats.   And I can't explain it, unless perhaps our reps are so damned egotistical they can't play team ball.
