Via No Quarter:
Spoke with David Drucker, Roll Call, to learn that the Democratic leadership in the Senate openly describes its strategy for the mid-term election as a version of going negative early, late, and always.
The Democratic campaign charge, according to Robert Menendez of New Jersey, is to paint the Republicans as extremists, outside the mainstream, unready, unworthy of mature leadership.
Sharron Angle, extreme. Rand Paul, extreme. Carly Fiorina, unready. Marco Rubio, unworthy.
It sounds lame, however it is the unanimous choice of the Democrats just because they know that there is no positive metric to debate, and that the joblessness, housing collapse, flaccid market, world drift, are all losers.
It just doesn’t seem rational that the Left would embrace the losing side of history with such nihilistic fervor. If picking through the wreckage wasn’t going to take so long, if their self-destructive thoughts affected only their own miserable selves, one might be move to some sort of empathy for the left. Politically speaking, they’re drowning: throw them an anvil, say I.
