Cobb, one the the most brilliant writers and analytical brothers in the blogsphere just posted an article on his blog at www.cobb.typepad.com that should be read in its entirety. Basically he opines that the Republican Right which he affectionately dubs are "Righties" (at least I think its affectionately) are fighting a losing battle and suffering from "intellectual constipation" by continually using the following buzz words and talking points and suggests that we should find an alternate stategy to overcome the opposition, he writes:
"The following words have entirely lost their meaning, and all thoughtful Righties are hereby urged to dig deeply and find an alternate path in your opposition:
Joe The Plumber
He then suggests an alternate strategy should be employed and writes:
"Use the size of your opponents army as a force against him. Barack Obama has made more money campaigning for the Office of President than any man alive or dead. He is a master propagandist. His appeal is singular and in order for him to win, you have to bleed him from 80 orifices all at once. If you attack him from all sides, he has to dilute the momentum of his mass by handling all the pesterization. What John McCain needs to do right now is raise 15 important issues that Obama has said nothing about that an experienced Washington insider knows everything about. Then watch him try to marshall his huge army of partisans around policy positions that Obama hasn't articulated. We understand that Obama has exploited his personal appeal to a broad coalition, but nobody on our side trusts his ability to deal with the complexities of the Oval Office. So why the hell are we talking about Joe the freakin' plumber instead of the complexities of the Oval Office? "
