RE: Good one, Ann...
Well, I'm not trying to call the election, what I really meant to say was the entire plan of their campaign became unravelled. They lost a 14 point lead and more importantly they had a huge investment in creating a public perception of Kerry as a man who really didn't accomplish all that much in the military or in the Senate and was a bumbling flip flopper. The plan was to continually reenforce that view with the public until Nov 2. The purpose of the plan was to avoid the unpleasant fact that Bush has made a total mess of everything by making Kerry the issue, a straw man Kerry that they created. Ann Coulter is but a symptom of Republicanism. They have built their whole stragedy around the Straw Man attack - they are in fact attempting to control this country with it. I challenge you to listen to Talk Radio, listen to Fox News, listen to their speeches - its the whole story of their movement - disinformation and distortion of facts first, and then a claim that the opposition supports the distortions. Along with that is another principle - distort things into a new twisted meaning to support a position that simple logic would never support. Just keep that in mind as you listen to the Repubs spin the WMD thing, justification for the War in Iraq, or any other issue.
The problem is that reality peeked in on them during the debates. But they are getting things back to normal - the issues are once again getting swamped by the Republican Smoke And Mirrors Machine, as we now talk about important national issues like if it is ok if Kerry called Mary Cheney gay or if Kerry is a "liberal". In the end though, one must come to a question - why does the leadership of the Republican Party need to resort to these tactics? Why can't they stand on the issues alone instead of relying on continual distortion and phony issues?
