GOP catch-phrases are getting OLD!
The buzz-words and catch-phrases used by Limbaugh, Hannity and the rest of the Republican cheerleadng radio-squad is so stale and repetitive, jeez, you'd think they could come up with something, anything fresh in six years.
But everyday it's the same old sowing doubt and fear and attacking the messengers (the "liberal" media) whenever the message doesn't suit the GOP agenda. At least with Dems, there's a little less hyperbole and subterfuge, at least as it concerns the media and the effort put forth by most reporters to produce factual information.
Every time a reporter writes an article that is unsympathetic to the Rumsfeld, Dubya and Cheney cabal, that reporter is immediately attacked and labeled with the "liberal, whacko, left-wing" monikers the GOP parrots like to squawk into the airwaves every day.
Have you noticed that the GOP camp followers never argue the issue, whatever the issue du jour? They resort to attacking the person who raises a question or a point and never put out any insight as to their personal vision. It's always the party line with the GOP.
Very little imagination or creativity with that bunch. It's as though they haven't one thinking, logical individual in their camp.
The basic dim-wittedness of the rote blather these guys spew is, as mentioned, so OLD and transparently phony and illogical that it's absurd anyone believes it anymore. But I suppose it's true what Lincoln or Franklin (whomever) said (and I apologize in advance for the possible misquote): "You can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time; but you can't fool all the people all the time," or something to that effect. But we Americans seem to have a tin ear when it comes truth. We seem to have a huge blind spot when it comes to loyalty – whether that's to political party, friends or alma mater, whatever.
Here's hoping the Dems gain ground in '06, if no other reason than some fresh bulls%#!.
And that's that.

Hi Michael. I posted a blog called "Democracy As Masquerade" that I'd like your thoughts on. It was spurred by a writer who suggested, at least according to my interpretation, that Kerry is not a "real" Democrat, and that's why he, as representative of the current, supposedly impotent Democratic party, failed to make much of a showing in the race. Best to you.
