Godwin’s Law (of elections and Republicans)

Godwin’s Law (krauthammer variant): as the President’s poll numbers approach 0, the probability of a comparison between Democrats fighting terrorism and Nazi appeasers approaches 1.

Corollary Theorem: Description of policies / voting as “Disaster” or “Defeat from the Arms of Victory” may be substituted as a softer variant.

seriously. when democrats choose a candidate whose views represent the overwhelming majority of americans, why is it republicans feel the need to say we’ll lose? shouldn’t they keep their mouths shut and be happy? or, could it be, that they know the only thing that stands between them and pulling another over the american people is democrats standing up for what we believe in?

side note. internecine. i’m thinking that word doesn’t mean what you think it means. internecine to describe a peace group?!? … ugh.

in·ter·nec·ine adj
1. Of or relating to struggle within a nation, organization, or group.
2. Mutually destructive; ruinous or fatal to both sides.
3. Characterized by bloodshed or carnage.

not exactly my first choice.

oh, ps, krauthammer – as long as you’re predicting the future – where are those WMDs you mentioned were in iraq?

    It’s part of the unfalsifiable “swing voter” hypothesis. Actually just happened to blog on the DLC variant today over at the Playgorund. If we lose, they win; if we win, they win. “Das ist nicht politik, das ist theologie.”
