On the Road With the Rahm and Chuck Show
Every time I hear Rahm Emmanuel and Chuck Schumer talking about their brilliant campain strategies which completely ignore our involvement in a country called Iraq, I’m reminded of John Cleese as Basil Fawlty in my single favorite piece of British comedy — the Fawlty Towers episode called "The Germans." Please watch the above clip and tell me if you recognize the DSCC/DCCC strategies for November. At least Basil had the excuse that he had just been hit by a large falling moose head.
A question — are we now supposed to not mention torture too? A laundry list of campaign unmentionables would be a nice thing to have.
Update: Swopa has a great post on the hit piece on Howard Dean in the NYT which — shockingly! — glorifies Rahm and Chuck. Well at least the Times got their nose out of the Clinton panty drawer for the moment.
