Me of little faith

I would really like to believe that the Dems are going to take Congress this fall. However, I don't think that is going to happen. Why? The Democrats don't know shit about controlling the message. For the left in this country, the message is an annoyance. It gets in the way of truth. What they don't realize is that the message is truth.

The left would like to believe that offering a reasonable alternative is the answer. Their image of the voter, is the thoughtful person sitting by their window thinking deeply about the issues until they get it right.

Quite simply, it has never worked that way. The voter attaches themselves to archetypes and votes with the image. Karl Rove has used this truism to win three straight elections and the Dems are overmatched.

Case in point, the Republicans are selling this image of the President while the Democrats are left stammering. Instead, the Dems should have latched onto the criticisms of the right and exposed it to all Americans. Unfortunately, that is not happening. As such, I am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to own my wife's uterus.
