Deep Thought For The Day
In the current political landscape, whether you are talking about the Iraq war, abortion rights, the economy or healthcare, the public sentiment is with the typical Democratic viewpoint. That is, the majority of people in this country express a preference for the side a Democrat would take in his or her platform. (With exceptions for some Democrats, and of course, a large portion of the country - but a minority portion, notably.) National security, if you talk about it in glib terms that aren't the war in Iraq, still probably favors the Republican side, but barely.
That's why any Republican who wants to win this November CAN'T make it about the issues. Something to think about as we roll into the silly season.
(And yes, that photo up there is not really very issue focused, is it? That's just the lovely irony that is the Reign of Error.)
