No Food, No Phone, No Pets
So, who's going to be more successful in November ? A Saul-Alinsky-inspired community organization with boots on the ground — or a bloated, consultant-laden campaign that pulls out of key primary states thinking it can just carpet-bomb them with ads later?
Discuss amongst yourselves. But we cats think we know the answer.
We're sizing up the 2012 campaign with one measuring stick: Would we rather be us than them? In other words, has there yet been any point at which we Democrats have looked at the political landscape and said, gee, we wish we were in the Republicans' position on this, this and this?
Um, no. Not even with the economy and the Super PACS and the voter suppression drives and the nuts on the Supreme Court and all those Obama-haters out there. Still wouldn't trade. We'll let you know if we change our minds.
In the meantime, it's Easter, so let's try to forget the ugliness in the world and think nice thoughts.
