    had not already coined the term "projection," they would have had to come up with it to analyze contemporary Republican behavior.  It's downright spooky, but as has often been pointed out here on dKos, you can predict the next Rovian paint-it-black strategy simply by observing what Republicans are doing and then anticipating that the opposition will be accused of it -- endlessly.

      Dems need to call them on it.  "What do you mean by the term "fascist?"  To your mind, Senator/Congresscretin, what does "fascist mean to you?"  Is a theocratist the same as a fascist?  What's the difference?

      How does the Iraq war compare to WWII?  VietNam?  The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan?  

      Have you ever supported al Qaeda/bin Laden?  Have you ever voted to support bin Laden/Jihadists?
