Agreeing With Laura Ingraham
Politics is not a battle for the middle. It is a battle for defining the terms of the political debate. It is a battle to be able to say what is the middle.
Laura Ingraham, via Crooks and Liars:
[N]ot to defend the Daily Kos, when you’re constantly targeting the middle or the moderates as Harold [Ford] called them…it’s pretty tough because the middle is always shifting…it’s shifting to where the left or right is more persuasive. It’s not like the moderates are an identifiable group—-identifiable positions on a number of key issues. They kinda move to either where conservatives or liberals guide them either successfully or not so…I think targeting the middle is a very risky political strategy . . .
The Republican have always known this. The DLC still has not learned this. Harold Ford and the DLC are bad at politics. But so is the Beltway Establishment, the home of Broderism.
