Democrats don't lie so good

Here's a great letter to the editor.

As a Republican and strong McCain supporter in 2000, I was disappointed and saddened in 2004 when McCain permanently traded in his maverick credentials and sold out his principles to support George W. Bush. I now find it equally disturbing to see him gamble our security and future with a reckless choice for a running mate.
Gov. Sarah Palin clearly has a bright future in politics. She may even have the depth and diversity of experience to be a vice-presidential candidate four years from now.

The McCain ticket, with all of its newfound “freshness” and despite all of the claims, has quickly devolved into the politics-as-usual that we have come to expect in the last eight years. McCain and Palin quickly emerged from the rhetoric of their convention as the uniters of dividers.

I talk politics with a lot of people from all walks of life. I find it compelling that many of the ordinary Republicans I talk to understand that their families cannot afford another four years like the last eight. We all deserve better.

I've been hearing this exact same B.S. from "Republicans" on talk radio. It is comical. However, they are usually smart enough to not be identified as Democratic Party officials, but the provide the same formulaic messages. There were almost two exact callers back to back on the one show.

didn't he/she say he/she was a Republican in 2000. I guess the imlication is that he/she has felt betrayed by the R's to the extent he/she changed parties and became involved.

Reminds me of a guy who was a Democrat and became an R...Reagan

Is there any Democrat you won't defend?

She should have been upfront as a former-Republican. She did not identify herself as a Democrat. She was identified by the local paper for who she was. The smalltown paper just knew who she was and identified her to point out what a liar she is. The ddownside of living in a small town. Everybody knows you.

The whole point of the letter was to pretend to be a disheartened Republican. I have heard this over and over again on the local talk shows. This is a democratic tactic. I'm sure Republicans do it to, but I personally have never witnessed it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seminar_caller

That is too funny. You talk about something backfiring. :huh: :rofl:

I also hear the same talk show callers who always say they are "lifetime" republicans, and then they proceed to read from the DNC platform book. It is so transparent that it is comical. :yes:
