Tristero, over at Hullabaloo, wonders why Dems aren't unloading at the crackpots making an issue out of Obama's upcoming school address ("work hard, stay in school," etc.). Given the Democrats' disorganized, deer-in-the-headlights non-response to rampant Rethug fear-mongering and hysteria this summer, one wonders why anyone would be surprised at the relative lack of forceful push-back on the latest craziness. This is how it starts: letting a virus into the body politic. It follows then that this is how you end up losing the debate; this is how you lose elections.
