  •  Cheap veneer (5+ / 0-)

    I love how they've all but stolen the Obama campaign aesthetic (color palette, principal font, music, prevalent use of white, etc...) in a hackneyed attempt to show how they are electable and that they've changed. They are even trying to steal the tech from Obama. Strong work, asshats, too bad it's all just a window dressing.

    And is there a more uncomfortable speaker than Reince Priebus? He looks tortured like he can't stand to be talking, and that makes me the viewer also feel tortured.

    But keep it up and we'll own (at least) the White House for the foreseeable future.

    •  Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery. (0+ / 0-)

      The Cons' repertoire of behaviors is limited to repetition and imitation. Repetition creates habits; imitation introduces variation. Imitation is also quite successful at distracting the enemy. When someone repeats what you've said almost word for word, it's logical to conclude he's come 'round to your way of thinking. Problem is that Cons do not think; the feel. And their feelings range between antagonism and adulation, with the pendulum swinging from one to the other in mere seconds.

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
