    is to find Republicans posing as Democrats during the campaign.  They will then act as Republicans once they are elected.  The rules no longer apply to these horrible, evil people who have infiltrated government at the state level.  They are not above anything.  Anything.

      There is no rule (in my state at least) that says that if you run as a Dem that you have to be a Dem in your heart of hearts. This is not a rule-breaking strategy they're planning, it is simply smart politics being played by people who really want to win. I want us to want to win that bad as well.

        a long time ago for that party, eh?  Reasonable and sane individuals have a hard time playing politics at this level, no matter how much we want to win.  I wish that weren't the case, but I think it is.

          always have been. But IMO Democratic pols are just as lying and full of it as Republicans. Their issue positions are sane, and they have compassion for the less fortunate, in general. But they are just as dishonest.

          •  Sure Democrats have done their share but damn I do (5+ / 0-)

            believe I've never seen or heard of any Democrat who would take the photograph of a paraplegic war veteran and morph it into the face of an avowed foreign enemy to win a campaign.   I'm sure others here can cite more examples of Republican dirt lower than anything a Democrat has done within the last 50 years.

            Remember, it is "We the People...", not "We the Fat Cats..."
