Free Re-Branding Advice For The GOP

If you want to rebrand yourselves as the party of not-dickheads, then… don’t be dickheads.

Tune in next week, when I explain how the Democrats can rebrand themselves as the party of not-spineless-corporate-sellouts.

You Keep Using That Word…

I do not think it means what you think it means.

I’m fine with having a debate about healthcare, and I’m pretty sure the Democratic leadership is too.  But yelling, intimidation, death threats and violence are not “debate.”  They’re, well, yelling, intimidation, death threats and violence.

Outright lies and paranoid fantasies about “death panels” and how government insurance will be both mandatory and somehow worse than for-profit insurance (is that even possible?) are also pretty borderline as far as “debate” goes.

I thought I would go the nostalgia route today.  Does anyone remember Jack Horkheimer, the “Star Hustler”?  He was this incredibly bizarre & enthusiastic man who would occasionally pop up on PBS to talk about astronomy stuff during my childhood and teenage years.  Since he’s pretty much impossible to describe, it’s a good thing YouTube has an abundance of clips.

I especially like his bizarre planet math.
