White House takes political pointers from Dukakis
Things even worse for the Democrats than you thought. The White House is now taking election advice from Mike Dukakis.
The Boston Globe reports that the 1988 Democratic presidential nominee recently visited the White House and "delivered his strategy for the midterm elections."
Soon vulnerable Democrats across the nation will be photographed wearing combat helmets.
In politics, a rising tide lifts all boats -- even those that aren't seaworthy.
In Colorado, the Denver Post found out that several candidates for the state legislature had criminal records. Among them is Republican Tom Janich, who has been arrested five times. Explained Janich: "Heck, if everyone in Adams County who ever drank one too many or smoked a joint would vote for me, I'd win in a landslide."
Public service message from Fox News: Don't vote.
"Are some Americans simply too dumb to vote?" Bill O'Reilly asked this week.
The answer, from John Stossel, was in the affirmative. "Young people often don't know anything," he explained. This is evidenced by the fact that they tend to vote for Democrats.
"I'm not going to cheer them on," Stossel said. "Let's stop saying everyone should vote....We don't want everyone doing brain surgery."
