How To Get Bubba to Vote Democratic

Democrats have to stick to the issues; they can’t let themselves get too tangled up in taking sides in the ‘cultural war’ questions of the day. They can’t get any real mileage out of affirmative action, the pledge of allegiance, and gay marriage, ‘cause the right sings Bubba’s tune on those issues.

But what Bubba doesn’t know is how much he’s been lied to about things he actually cares about – war and the economy. Bubba’s dying in Iraq and being sucked dry at home. The left needs to do more than simply confront Bubba with BushCo’s destructive policies and their hideous consequences. They need to show Bubba how badly BushCo lies about everything and do so unceasingly.

‘Cause if there’s one thing Bubba hates more than being out of beer on game day, it’s being made a fool of.
