The ABB trap

Even uber-liberal Derrick Jackson of the Boston Globe can’t swallow Senator Splunge’s long list of lies: Kerry’s “Anybody But Bush” trap

Further evidence of how the Kerry folks are relying heavily on the ABB game was the campaign's recent ''release'' of something called the ''Middle-Class Misery Index.'' By the time you get done reading it, you'd think we're in the second Great Depression.

Remember the furor when Howard Dean said that “we’re no safer” after Saddam Hussein was captured? In a similar way, John Kerry is desperately trying to convince America of things that are demonstrably untrue. Furthermore, as Jackson notes, the Democrats are so addicted to the ABB mentality, it squeezes out any positive vision of their own.
