Rally 'Round the (White) Flag

It seems that the Dems have (as always) overreached in their rhetoric. You just knew this was coming:

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks.

The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week.

A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue to pander to the anti-war activists within our party.”

The web video advances the Republican contention that the Democrats only have a “retreat and defeat” message on the war in Iraq.

For all of the "grassroots support" that Dean got in 2004 (and by grassroots, I mean paid support from Mark Moulitsioasdias), he consistently showed that he had no clue what he was doing politically. The Dems ultimately decided to hand over the reigns of their party to an amateur who represented just a small percentage of the Democratic base in 2004 and alienated Democratic Primary voters... Now all the GOP has to do when it's down is wait for Dean to open his mouth, let him attack, attack, attack and then counter with his own words.

What a trainwreck for the Dems... See Peat Bog for more
