Richard Pombo is George Bush's Lapdog
Over on Daily Kos last month, arubyan wrote this diary about a campaign video that he/she created and posted on YouTube. He came up with a generic formula where individual Democratic candidates could be dropped into the same narrative, and the McNerney/Pombo race was the specific example that he used. I’ll let him explain his theory in his own words:
I did this video on my own because I wanted to illustrate a simple formula that I've been preaching about for weeks:Now, when I read that diary and watched the video, I was pretty deeply impressed.
- Bush = Bad
- Republican Incumbent = BushTherefore...
- Republican Incumbent = Bad.
- Had Enough?
- Vote for Change, Vote Democratic, Vote for McNerney
So fast forward six weeks. On Thursday, I read this post by the folks at MyDD. A couple of weeks after releasing the MyDD/Courage Campaign polling data from Francine Busby’s CA-50 race in June, MyDD was back with an in-depth analysis of the information and what Democrats can learn from that election that can be applied to Congressional races across the country. I’m pretty sure the lessons aren’t exactly what you expected; nevertheless, they resonate strongly.
And they got me thinking again about arubyan’s video. I believe he instinctively nailed it. Now, six weeks later, along comes the polling data to support him. Don't you just love it when your gut feelings are totally validated?
