Empty Threat Alert Level Orange: "He can run but he can't hide."
Democrats are too polite. Inside the Kerry campaign, after the second debate, Kerry's people are calling Bush's unwillingness to admit to mistakes "close to pigheadedness." Why can't they say the unwillingness to admit mistakes is pigheaded? Why can't they say, "He's lying." Why can't they use any but the most polite rhetoric when calling their opponents to the carpet. Republicans sling mud like it's hash, and no one seems to have learned that idiot Americans believe what they hear. So you've got to tell it like it is. Not with a sugar-coating. Not with the help of your thesaurus. But with the truth. And hopefully with fewer syllables.
