Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Halfway To A Good Idea

Democrats are going to GOP House members' town halls.  That's good, as far as it goes, to show that Democrats as a party aren't afraid of no ghosts constituents.

What they should be doing is identifying promising candidates for GOP House seats, coaching them up and then appear on stage with the sitting Democratic House member from another district.  Start making people see a face that they can relate to who is on their side.

It's early yet, but that's what I'd be doing.
