Ahh, but it gets better. The DNC and their associated pundits are now worshipping at the feat of Berkely linguistics professor (any better than a certain MIT linguistics professor?) George Lakoff:
(cognitive linguistics, especially the neural theory of language, conceptual systems, conceptual metaphor, syntax-semantics-pragmatics; also the application of cognitive linguistics to politics, literature, philosophy and mathematics... er, just in case you want to know)
Ahem. He has just written "Don't Think of an Elephant: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate--The Essential Guide for Progressives." This is the new bible that basically elaborates up on the idea that they just need to rephrase and repackage their tired old, slogans and ideas. The book has already received some hilarious reviews in conservative circles even as it is being hailed as the new Democrat bible. The Dems are prescribing for themselves what they prescribe for us: more of the same poison. You should read the Amazon reviews, quite amusing. They really believe that it is still just a matter of fooling enough of us, enough of the time.
While Democrats would no doubt prefer to spin these numbers as evidence that Republicans are the party of the richSometimes the Left tries to paint Republicans as plutocrats.
"One of the Republican Party's major successes over the last few decades has been to persuade many of the working poor to vote for tax breaks for billionaires."At other times the Left tries to paint Republicans as poor hicks.
