OK, but how do we win?

Following up on the Brute existents post below, DB would like to call attention to another excellent post by Digby on the subject of partisanship and politics of division.

Digby, as usual, gets it better than anybody. But again, the question is what do we do about it? Pointing out that the GOP divides people is only half the battle. Coming up with a strategy for mitigating these tactics is the other half, and at this point, the most important part.

This is not a criticism of Digby in any way whatsoever. It is a criticism of the people responsible for Democratic campaigns. They've had plenty of time to move from the "Hey, that's a divisive issue!" phase to the "Here's how we're going to win" phase. And they haven't.

This blogger believes the answer lies in two areas:

  • More intelligent use of language
  • Better party discipline.

More to come on these topics later.
