    It's not "also dumb" when Democrats do it, it's "even dumber" when they do it.  Because every time they do it, they play right into the Republican frame and weaken their own brand.  And the effect is cumulative.

    It's always been a stupid sound-bite meme, but unfortunately, like most emotion-tugging sound bite memes it has staying power.  It all comes down to "My times are hard, why shouldn't everyone else's be too?"

    That's what the Republicans are really saying.  And it works -- all too well -- for people who don't think about it much.
