Steve Benen finds an argument from a NR guy that is hilariously naive:

Democrats have nearly perfected the following exercise in cynical electioneering: 1) introduce legislation; 2) title it something that appeals to the vast majority of Americans who have no interest in learning what is actually in the bill, e.g., the “Violence Against Women Act”; 3) make sure it is sufficiently noxious to the GOP that few Republicans will support it; 4) vote, and await headlines such as “[GOP Lawmaker] Votes No On Violence Against Women Act”; 5) clip and use headline in 30-second campaign ad; and 6) repeat.

Literally the first two words that came into my mind after reading this were, “PATRIOT Act.”

    Also, I believe “cynical” is kinda-Greek for “doglike”. No relevance; I just find that occasionally funny.

  2. Metavirus says:

    these people literally have no ability to think in context or believe/remember that “their people” ever do wrong. well, it’s also explainable in the context of “all’s fair in love and war”. considering that conservatives are taking the fight to the noxiously evil Stalinist Degenerate Libtarb Feminazi Negro-lovin’ Muslim Moocher Brigade, who WOULDN’T use such shameful, cynical, hypocritical, mendacious and all-around shitty tactics to bring down those existential threats to our freedoms???
