Contract...oops, Commitment to America


The Republicans don't have anything to base their congressional campaign on except recycled refuse from 1994!

Their '94 campaign was known as the Contract With America - which was such a failure that nobody is going to vote for that shit again. So now they've just taken the same ideas and given them a slightly different name: Commitment to America.

In case you've forgotten (and how could you?), let me refresh your memory of what the Contract With America was about: In a nutshell, it was about telling the rich what they loved to hear, manipulating public opinion to force everyone else to believe it, and demonizing the poor or anyone who had the "wrong" ideas.

They might as well just run on tinkle-down economics, since they seem to be stuck on decades-old ideas.
