Hey, it worked (sort of) for Joe Wilson, didn't it? He trashed the White House and when they defended themselves, you see what we got: Fitzgerald.
I was watching spitball this last week and Sissie was talking to a White House press secretary-type gal (I forget her name, but very well spoken and very hot looking blonde). He brought up Bush's line in the the State of the Union about defeatism then referred to a poll that supposedly shows that the vast majority of Americans think it was wrong to send troops to Iraq. He then asked if that made all these Americans defeatists! Talk about a leap in logic.
