Aug. 28 - Its hard to travel across the country these days without seeing an old familiar bumper sticker: Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing its idiot. Perhaps the slogan rang true for many progressive voters in this highly partisan, highly charged and highly polarized electorate. But, if the bumper-sticker crowd believes it refers to George W. Bush, they are sorely mistaken.
Sen. John Kerry can win this election by understanding that he is running against a shrewd, clever and an extremely intelligent opponent who was trained in political combat by the late GOP strategist Lee Atwater.
With all the former aides and strategists to Al Gore on board, the Kerry campaign has shown that it is wise enough to learn from some of the mistakes we made in 2000. Namely, Kerry has utilized the ubiquitous President Bill Clinton as a surrogate of sorts, and also habitually reminded voters of the prosperity and fiscal discipline enjoyed during the Clinton years.
However, as tacit as the Kerry campaign has been, it must tread lightly through segments of the political battlefield. Four years ago, I personally witnessed the relentless attacks on former Vice President Gores character from third-party surrogates with loose, but ideologically significant ties to the Bush campaign. After having a high-energy and well-defined convention where Kerry was introduced as a decorated war hero he was forced to play defense by a group of former Vietnam veterans vehemently opposed to his candidacy. As the challenger, Kerry had to personally respond to these scurrilous attacks on his character with the hopes of setting the record straight before November. Thankfully for Kerry, this back-and-forth occurred in the slow news month of August and not in October, which would have made it omnipresent in the minds of voters.

We are winning ~ the bad guys are losing ~ trolls, terrorists, democrats and the mainstream media are sad ~ very sad!
I meant August obviously
Oh dear. You signed up today to post a screed by the lovely and charming Donna Brazile? Just a hint - if you are not a troll, best come back and respond to some comments, and create at least a little bit of an "about" page for yourself. So, what do you think about Ms. Brazile's little article?
And did you know you can get reduction surgery for those Double D's?
rock on / I hope you are right
Already posted, newbie.
full blown independent conservative and already had the surgery
Come on, it worked so well last time. Give it another shot. Whattya say?
Signed up today to post this drivel, has yet to respond.
Set beebers to stune, and await further instructions.
Welcome to FR, I'd advise you to keep responding to questions/posts after posting something like this as your first article :)
"Sen. John Kerry can win this election by understanding that he is running against a shrewd, clever and an extremely intelligent opponent"
I thought Bush was a thoughtless moron? Now he is a genious? Same old flip-floppin.
don,t worry I will be voting for bush/cheney
But but Molly Ivens and all the other leftist loudmouths say Bush is a big dummy. How can this be? I thought he was the "Shrub" who can't even speak coherently. There must be some mistake here. I'd better send this column to Molly. She'll straighten it all out.
I believe he went Yale college
Well one evil dum knows the facts.
See replies #6, 9, 14, and 16 .....
Yeah, read some other posts elsewhere too. Looks okay, putting teh saefty on my beeber back on.
While you are at it - don't forget to check outthe planned rally in Washington DC on 12 September, thousand and thousands of Vets, Vietnam Vets, Family member, Green berets etc will be in Washington DC! The Swifties will carry on until November! May God bless them all!
yes we need to start giving back to the left the crap they dish out
"...yes we need to start giving back to the left the crap they dish out"
yes, with Interest! (after all, we ARE the capitalists!)
Hey, Double, welcome to FR. Don't let some of our over-sensitive friends here spoil your post.
Not all newbies are DU trolls.
Donna is a failed attempt at affirmative action.
Old geezers are always right! :)
Be Ever Vigilant!
Dear Ms. Ivins,
Did you read this current article by Donna Brazile?
In it, she states, "Sen. John Kerry can win this election by understanding that he is running against a shrewd, clever and an extremely intelligent opponent who was trained in political combat by the late GOP strategist Lee Atwater."
This just can't be and I think you should write a reply column straightening poor Donna out. We all know that the "Shrub" only got through Yale, Harvard Business and fight pilot school because Daddy pulled strings. And he only beat Ann Richards in the debates out of plain old luck, notwithstanding Ann's claims to the contrary.
It's time to put Donna in her place and I think you're just the woman to do it!
I wonder which town is missing an overweight Black woman with a big mouth.
Oh, and welcome to Free Republic! I never needed the surgery (had just the opposite problem).
Double DDs: Welcome to Freerepublic
Bill Clinton knows how to beat...oh, sorry, wrong kind of bush.
Nah. Just concerned about the shoulder and back pain.
How to beat Bush:
2. Gain control of media apparatus (accomplished)
4. Register nursing home patients, patients at mental facilities and mental retardation centers and make sure to bus them to the polls with careful instructions on which lever to pull.
5. Ditto the homeless (may require payment of a carton of smokes)
7. Register the dead and make sure they vote in November
I never worried about the pain as long as they kept it to themselves.
Don Novello's got nothing on you.
Why, thankyou, bd. But I must say Novello is a master. I just loved some of his Lazlo letters.
Al's wondering when you arrived at this brilliant stratergy, Donna. Musta been the morning after HIS debates, eh?
