Team-based thinking leads to a certain understandable blindness, but it rarely goes this far. Dennis Miller was discussing style vs substance this morning, and one caller said:
"Hey, why don't the Republicans get better talking points? Why don't they say, for instance, You want higher gas prices, vote Democrat. You want lower gas prices, vote Republican."
Um, perhaps they don't say that because everyone in the country knows that the wild rise in gas prices has occurred under Republicans. Even brand-R politicians aren't quite stupid enough to try a slogan that runs so obviously against experience ... No, I take it back. They are stupid enough. I fully expect to see this slogan in tomorrow's talking-point memo now that it's been suggested.
