John Boehner: The New Devil?

John Boehner.

Who’s he?  He’s from Ohio (ok)?  He’s got a nuclear tan (my, how unnatural)?  He could soon be Speaker of the House (better than that woman with the frozen smile)?   Wait, he’s a Republican?!?

That does it, he must be destroyed!

All fun aside, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) has become the new target for Democrats in this Fall’s midterm election.  However, the problem for the Dems is that no one knows who he is!

Nice try though.  The tactic does make sense, if you’re desperate:  the economy sucks, but that’s mostly the Dems fault at this point;  blaming Bush has made you look weak and out of touch (wrong election too, jerk); and seeing Democrats flee from Obama like rats from a sinking ship requires a change of subject, a new straw man.  Pure Alinsky, though:  pick a target, marginalize it, demonize it, destroy it.  I don’t think it will stick unless the Republicans cave and give the Dems more ammo.
