Rules for Radicals playbook
It does sound a bit silly to promote as a political tactic the concept of “mocking a politician mercilessly.” However political history has shown, it is effective. Nixon’s career was adversely affected by the Left’s endless parodies and guerrilla like harassment. This was effective in molding the opinion of the unsophisticated especially the young. Carter and Bush I, to a lesser extent were hurt by mocking. Today virtuous conservatives are in a minority. Creative mocking will hamper Obama.
