In their latest "please don't throw us in that briar patch!" communication, a "key Republican strategist" fears Gephardt as a running mate for Obama.
Do they really think it's that easy to manipulate us? Remember how they all said they feared Clinton as a candidate? Oh, no! We don't want to run against Clinton! That would be too, too, scary!
And time and time again, the Republican noise machine referred to Clinton as the one to beat, the high evil, the worst, worst, worst.
Apparently trying to force Democrats into choosing their preferred opponent.
It didn't work in the primaries, and it won't work in the general. WHO THE HELL CARES WHAT THE REPUBLICANS THINK, WANT, OR FEAR? The only thing they fear is an enforced subpoena, and we're not likely to see that any day soon.
It's time to stop letting the Republicans define who's competent, who's a fearsome competitor, who's a loser not worth mentioning. THEY NO LONGER SET THE AGENDA.
Note that this is more of a rant than a diary.
I say, RANT ON!!!
