First off I gotta hand it to Digby for a great post about the 2000 election, the 2004 election, and the GOP’s general distaste for actual political discourse. He states the very good point that is starting to emerge from elsewhere in the liberal political blogosphere, which is that even if John Kerry is elected President in Novermber, the GOP will turn on a dime and go all Clinton on him almost immediately. There will be pseudoscandals, mock outrage galore on the Sunday morning shows, and possibly impeachments because Kerry bought Tide instead of Cheer. I believe, though I probably haven’t thought it through enough, that the key to getting America back on our side is to expose the lies and hypocrisy for what they are. Get on a podium with charts and quotes and show America the lies. We’ve found, constantly throughout the last 4, 8, and 12 years, that if you give the right-wing an inch by being civil and gracious, they take a mile and impeach the President. Do NOT let them do that. Apparently, after all that rhetoric, WE will be the ones to bring truth and honor back to the White House.
