  •  GOP's New Strategy and Lowden? (6+ / 0-)

    Wealthy Beauty Queens who know how to hold the stage, how to sound as firm and sure as any man, and who will promote the GOP talking points.

    What if Lowden wins?

    She is invoking fond nostalgia for a pleasant bygone era and who could possible REJECT that?

    It's  going to take more than scorn on our part to derail the GOP's new and insidious strategy.

    •  This won't hurt her (0+ / 0-)

      Lowden is obviously a moron but too much ridicule will harden her supporters and to independents may make the Dems seem "mean."  It's a double-standard that actually benefits some women candidates.

        But it will have the non-committed center bending over with laughter.

        You know that during her campaign she's going to be followed around by a very large chicken wearing a white jacket and stethoscope....

      surgery back then would possible rid anyone of those "pleasant nostalgia days."  Now we go into the surgical room and out the same day on some services. Back then you had to bite a bullet while they cut off your leg, then it turned green because you did not have an antibiotic.....

      You couldn't just remove a tumor in your hand you had to remove the whole hand.

      So, when we think of those "nice days" think of the medical technology improvements that is enough to say "No, thanks."
