Democrats’ strategy for fall campaign is to brand Republicans with Tea Party label
It says HERE that “Democrats are planning to link the tea party and Republicans, overlapping the two groups to paint the GOP as a party of extremists and the grassroots activists as tools of the establishment.”
And it says HERE that Democrats figure the GOP doesn’t have the resources to win back control of the House, especially with more than 100 conservative third party candidates on congressional ballots around the country.
UPDATE: Nate Silver TAKES ISSUE (and how!) with a Democratic memo on which the second of the two links above is based. (Warning: If you’re offended by F-bombs, you might want to take a pass on what Silver has to say.)
