… is that the gloating ones going on about how the Democratic Party is going to suffer when the GOP plays back their defeatism during the campaign are living in a delusional state. When has the GOP ever played rough like that? I remember waiting … and waiting … and giving on President Bush unloading Senator Kerry’s overflowing baskets of documented dirty laundry on him. It didn’t happen. I don’t see why any one would expect it to be different this time around. Is the GOP unwilling to use these wide open shots because they’re afraid of having to deal with the expectation backlash?

That is, if the GOP stands up straight and smears accurately quotes Democratic Party candidates, the American Street might start asking questions about what the GOP is going to do to achieve victory and the GOP leadership seems to be composed of people who are pathologically afraid of having such un-nuanced discussions.

I will predict, now, that the GOP will use little if any of the publically recorded defeatism of the Democratic Party against them in the 2008 elections. I predict that, like Senator Schumer, the respect for Communism during the Cold War, and the Clinton scandals, the Democratic Party will memhole it all and the GOP will let them.

Won’t that depend on the candidate?
