  •  This Is The Thing Dems Have Never Learned.... (15+ / 0-)

    Republicans are SO MUCH better at fighting than we are. They get there first, they lie with impunity, and they frame the conversation.

    There is not a single doubt in my mind that if there were a revote right now, Coleman would win with quite a bit of room. The GOP has been demonizing both Franken and the process from minute one. We have been "above the fray", and conceding critical ground while doing so.

    Why have I not heard Reid, or anyone for that matter, point out the cherry-picking by Coleman on the disputed absentee ballots, and say the following words:

    "Having lost the election, Norm Coleman is now trying to STEAL THE ELECTION by only having ballots counted that would seem to be in his favor."

    STEAL. THE. ELECTION. Why do Democrats have such a hard time saying these words. At least when we say them, in this case, it has the ring of accuracy.
