Lunch with the cannibals
The Rude Pundit:
The simple truth is that Democrats, moderates, liberals, anyone, won’t win by saying, “Lookeeme, I’m like you, Farmer Brown or Factory Worker Sally, look at me compromise on abortion rights and put on shit-stained boots to go out into the fields and talk about how much I hate queers.” No, winning comes by saying, “Look here, Farmer Brown and Factory Worker Sally, you are like me.” And that means on each and every coming battle – Social Security, judges, tax cuts, Iraq. The people don’t want leaders who identify with them. They want leaders who they identify with. It’s a fine, but important distinction.
