Flashback to high school:
(Harp arpeggios has hazy scene dissolves to homeroom at a high school):
GIRL: Who’s your boyfriend?
LEFTYBLOGGER: Oh – he goes to another school!
(Harps return for more arpeggions as scene dissolves, then re-establishes at college)
PROFESSOR: So what evidence did we have that Reagan was a crook that should have been in jail and who actively promoted the crack and AIDS epidemics?
FUTURE LEFTYBLOGGER: He was a Republican!
PROFESSOR: Close enough!
(Harps again; scene dissolves, then re-establishes in a basement somewhere in suburbia)
LEFTYBLOGGER: (Speaking as she types): Of course the the Burkett memos were real! One of the world’s leading forensic document analysts is in my bowling league, and she says the case that they were forged has absolutely zero merit! No, I won’t reveal her name, or the name or location of the bowling league, because I don’t want to put her in danger from all you teabagging wingnuts. But if they gave a Nobel prize for document analysis, she’d have five. And so if you disagree with me, you’re an idiot!”
(Harps again, as scene dissolves, then re-establishes in Washington DC):
“[The source of Harry Reid’s allegations against Mitt Romney] is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody … who has been dealing with Romney’s company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge on this,” [Reid aide Jose Parra] said.
Parra’s statement comes after Romney, in an interview with Fox News, challenged Reid to identify his source.
However, after some media attention on Parra’s radio interview, Parra issued a statement taking those remarks back.
“I do not know the party affiliation of the source, how long he invested with Bain, or his relationship to Romney beyond the fact that he was an investor with Bain Capital, as Senator Reid has previously stated,” he said.
The Democrat strategy seems to be to find enough of the stupid, the gullible, the dependant, the depraved and the incurious to eke out a victory.
Experience in Minnesota shows that at least 43% of any given population can be counted on.
