The judicious Austin Mayor quotes Mark Evanier:

“I don’t know why the Democrats don’t just run an ad blitz for the next few days showing Bush’s recent statement that he’ll keep us in Iraq even if his only support comes from his wife and his dog, followed by the clip of him saying he’ll never dump Rumsfeld.

“At the end, just have an announcer come on and say, ‘Somebody’s got to stop him . . . vote for the Democrat.‘”

When the ship of state is headed at top speed for the iceberg — a whole field of icebergs — it’s not time to worry about making nice or crafting detailed policy proposals. That can come later.
