Thanks to Hotline on Call, you can read a memo sent recently to House Republicans by Oklahoma Congressman Tom Cole, a former RNC executive director who wants to join the House Rs' leadership.
The key part is this: "The Democrats are determined to defeat us next year and a little paranoia on the part of our supporters is not a bad thing when it comes motivating and turning out our base." Read the full thing (on an empty stomach) here.
This will be handy when they start (start?) sliming our incumbents, leaders and challengers next year. I hope every Dem running in '06 pulls out that quote when their GOP opponents try a repeat of what happened to Max Cleland and John Kerry. No more Swift Boatings!!
If you think this is a big deal, please recommend this diary! :-)
