Let’s say you were a strategist within the shadowy corridors of the DNC. You place your half-consumed scotch on your desk and gaze out the blinds at Washington, DC. How are you going to retain crown jewel number one in that town?
You light up a cigarette. Hah! It’s funny the way those stupid college kids bought into the big-tobacco nonsense and banned smoking from anywhere and everywhere, isn’t it. It’s good to be a Democrat.
In between puffs on a Marlboro and the arrival of your driver whom you pay way less than $15 an hour and don’t let anyone find out, two ideas come to mind. One, even if the media discovered that you pay your driver just a smidge above the minimum wage they’d give you a pass because you are one of them. Hah! Two, the best way to retain the White House post-Obama is to run candidates for both parties.
That’s right. Find someone who will say he’s a Republican, will even sign a pledge of loyalty to the RNC, and run him against whatever dregs of progressivism emerge when the dolts you call a constituency put down their EBT cards and cast votes during the primaries.
It can’t be just anyone. It’s got to be someone with name brand. Someone who, you hear his name and an image of greatness comes to mind. But it can’t be Obama.
Moreover, it’s got to be someone who will go out and say dumb things. Things that will both energize the bottom-feeders you call activists. And things that will make indepdents think conservatives are as intellectually challenged as the bottom-feeders you call acvtivists. He has to be a caricature of every stereotype you’ve put out there about anyone who has ever dared to utter a single thought that trends right of center.
Most importantly, you need someone who admitted publicly that he is a Democrat. Who. Who could you find?
