Don’t worry about the Dems, though- even if the economy doesn’t work out in their favor for the elections next year, they will still create all sorts of absurd memes. Witness Oliver repeating the newly created ‘Bush doesn’t go to soldiers funerals’ meme, all the while shilling (‘He’s a General! And a Democrat!’) for Clark.
Here is the Volokh group discussing the issue in detail- although Oliver will surely dismiss it as nothing more than RNC ‘talkig points.’
In other news, none of the members of the Plame Brigade have yet to acknowledge the Democrat malfeasance involving the Senate Intelligence committee. At least Bob Kerrey and Zell Miller understand how awful the Democrat actions are– although it is nothing more than the process that the Democrats started with Leahy and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
