I need to start tracking things like this re-create the 1968 convention effort. The key comment is

The events of 1968 elected Nixon. These morons never, ever learn, do they?

No, they don’t. It’s just another example of how this kind of thing is just a re-enactment, not a political strategy. However, this isn’t the first time in the last few months that a group of MALists have used an analogy that demonstrates an ignorance or indifference to history, on the order of a bunch of rabid anti-Communists swearing to recreate the Bay of Pigs. But if you think that “this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part”, then perhaps these aren’t such bad analogies.

the pants-pissingly funny thing is, the cosmic irony out the ass thing is — the dems are running a nixon this time (and a mcgovern too!).
