In pursuit of Newt’s dream and Rove’s agenda, no tactics are off limits. It’s all out political hardball in pursuit of power, for all the marbles, with indifference to convention and consequences.
But, it seems, at times, that whatever brief gratification Republicans get at the climax of a successful campaign, the outcome isn’t worth the cost of another punishing pursuit of power, against a determined vox populi.
Couple that with the reality that Dems keep putting it together, making it a little better, training, involving new blood, refining processes and flow of information. There may not be much to look forward to, if you’re a Republican, but there is if you’re a Lefty.
