  •  'Nucular' option: Right-Wing-Power-Grab Frame (none)
    Suppose Reid keeps the horses in line.  Suppose the Pubs go 'nucula.'  Time for the Right-Wing-Power-Grab Frame.  

    The extreme right wing of the republican party is engaged in a series of maneuvers designed to do away with all aspects of democracy that threaten their power.

    Tools for creating a 3D frame:

    1.  Redistricting in Texas (still in the courts), Colorado (struck down by courts), Georgia

    2.  Ohio Election, Florida Election

    3.  Ethics rules changes in the Senate

    4.  Stocking of regulative agencies with industry execs

    5.  Propaganda (Armstrong Williams et el.)

    6.  Anti-internationalist policies

    Any others?  The nuclear option has the potential of crystalizing in the public's mind the real nature of the Republicans in power right now.

    Dems for Democracy.
    Dems for Debate.

    The problem of power is how to achieve its responsible use rather than its irresponsible and indulgent use JFK
