Politics in the Red Zone: What Democrats Can Learn From Football

December 17, 2007

Guest Author A.F. Cook argues that Democrats don’t have to change their views but need the perception of being “regular guys” in order to win elections. Democrats, unlike Republicans, do support the underdog. But like Bush, who bought his Crawford Ranch in 2000 to play “ranchhand,” learning how to fake blue-collar values is 90% of the perception battle.

    When I was in college the Denver Broncos held a spring training camp at my school. They left the same day because the LA smog was killing them. I happened to be standing between them and their bus as they were leaving when I first saw them. That was one scary sight. The smallest guy was build like a brickhouse. And they were not at all happy due to the smog. I think that situation was a lot scarier than anything the democrats have faced recently. What is their excuse? Maybe we should throw them all in front of the Broncos and given an ultimatum, develope a spine or be prepared to receive a punt.

    Do the job. Democrats are doing everything but the job they were elected to do.
