Same Dem Scam: Trash, Poll & Spin

Tuesday, 14 November 2000 12:00 AM

The Dems are trotting out their standby strategy that served them so well during impeachment; it’s a three-part formula to bulldoze their way through seeming adversity.

And the Florida re-re-count debacle is the perfect situation to employ this technique in order to steal the election for Junior Gore.

This is how it works:

First, trash the opposition.

This is the politics of personal destruction, and we saw it first used against Robert Bork during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings in the Senate, then against Newt Gingrich even before he took office as Speaker of the House, then again against Kenneth Starr, the Whitewater Special Prosecutor.

Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris is now in the cross-hairs of the Democrat trash artillery. Watch how fast the media knowingly participates in this detestable onslaught following ruling that Florida law requires a 5 p.m. deadline today for certification of ballots.

And now that a Florida judge has placed the legal onus on her discretion to accept or reject late amendments of voting results from several Dem counties, watch the personal attacks escalate.

After demonizing the opposition, the Democrats then act as victims of the very person

Second, the Dems use polls as a means of portraying themselves as on the side of public opinion, on the 'right' side of the issue.

The very same polls paid for by the media, which were so pathetic as a barometer in gauging potential election results, are now being trotted out to paint the Dems as in step with "what the American people want."

During impeachment this was one of the foundations upon which the Dem defenders of Clinton depended.

"Look at the polls, look at the polls," they implored us. "Americans want this, Americans want that!" Of course they interpret these suspect polls to their own advantage, without there ever being an external, objective event – such as an election – to see if the polls accurately reflect sentiment. In essence, it’s one big fantasy; a fiction to be spun.

The third and final prong in the standard Dem attack is to spin, spin, and spin again, until everyone is dazed and confused by the entire exercise, to such an extent that the public becomes sick and tired of all the rhetoric and then, in desperation, just wants it all to be over with.

There you have it. That’s what they’re doing right now.
