Beating Bush

Several scribes have suggested that its important for Kerry to force Bush to show his patrician meanness during the debates. I agree. He's not a likeable person (nor was his mother, BTW) but he plays one on TV. So push him, make him angry, make him show his true self.

Same thing with leadership -- Bush is not a leader, but he plays one on TV. Emphasize his lack of leadership on nearly every issue -- its not that hard.

Another writer, Tom Schaller, has suggested re-linking Iraq and Afghanistan to the war on terror and pointing out that such war is failing miserably. The same writer suggests pointing out the nearly royal status of the Bush family. There's been someone named George Bush on 6 of the last 7 presidential election ballots. As Schaller puts it, "Maybe George Bush slept through his American history classes at Yale, but I seem to recall that we fought a war 200 years ago to free ourselves from a monarchy led by a guy named George."
