  •  The point of the thereisnospoon diary (8+ / 0-)

    which I think was lost on a lot of people, was not to say "this is the Democrat's strategy" as in, don't worry people, they've got things under control, it was "this is the Democrat's strategy" as in, they should all be f-ing ashamed of themselves for pursuing such a horribly misguided and cynical strategy that might just not have the effects they desire.

    Thereisnospoon merely defined the strategy as a means to understand the motiviations of the Democrats when they do really, really stupid stuff like this.  It was most certainly not to justify their actions and in fact, quite the contrary.

    Here's the diary:

      you think I listed it as viable and ethical strategy? (sheesh!) I comment that he's got a good thesis -- as in -- explaining what is driving their unethical and shameful behavior. So, we're absolutely on the same page.

      I just think Occam's Razor cuts it to shreds.

      Two possibilities:

      1. Reid & Pelosi are passing everything Bush wants them to pass, and nothing he doesn't, because they are pursuing a convoluted & likely unsuccessful electoral strategy.
      1. They're doing it because they want to pass the same things Bush wants to pass.

      #2 has a good deal louder ring of truth, wouldn't you say?  It means the Dems are neither stupid, nor Machiavellian, just lying about their motives.

      As for why they'd be so ardent to get telco legislation passed -- what were AT&T's earnings last year?  I rest my case.

      Mission Accomplished: The ultimate in premature ejaculations.
