Target, Isolate, Distract
Poor Democrats! The people are angry at them and some of them are behaving badly, insensitively using scary words, like "target" and holding candle-light ("Torch" light?) vigils. These tea partiers are "mad, MAD," they'll tell you. As in crazy and insane. And let's not forget, racist. And anybody who doesn't agree with their badly-needed, history-making healthcare reform bill are racists by proxy.
Will the Democrats' campaign of distraction work? It will with a certain portion of the media. But, with the voting public? I doubt it.
