The Democrats' Formula for Success

Howard Dean's recent letter to ostensible Democratic supporters is so misleading it's become, literally overnight, a poster-child for blithering inanity. Consider its key sentence:

On Monday, Democratic Senator Russ Feingold introduced legislation to censure the President for breaking the law by creating a secret domestic spying program.

Secret spying? Say it ain't so! Gosh, I didn't know the spying they did was secret. Perhaps, Einstein, covert information collection operations need to be secret... but maybe that's just me. If they weren't, Brainiac, the terrorists might find out, thus defeating the very purpose of the program. This ain't exactly calculus here, folks. In fact, it's not even arithmetic, but it's apparently enough to thoroughly confuse the Democratic Party.

Domestic spying? Well, sure, if an airplane flying from Moscow to New York can be called a domestic flight then, well yes, the wiretaps were domestic. But I think most of us would call that an international flight. Just like the wiretaps, which have been approved for years by, oh, only the Attorney General, the White House Counsel, members of Congress from both parties, and so on.

Better still, the majority of the public favors these international wiretaps. So this'll work out real well -- just like the last bunch of elections -- for the Democrats' 2006 chances.

Here's a real simple formula for the Democrats to learn:

Protecting Americans from International Terrorism = Good
Not protecting Americans from International Terrorism = Bad

Got it, Nancy Feingold-Dean?
