(I found the cartoon above at Legal Insurrection.)
I am a liberal who is still a registered Democrat. I realize that you guys are stinging from this Todd Akin flap and the Democratic party’s “war on women” meme. I don’t believe that your party hates women.
In your desire to push back against the Democrats I see some of you bringing up Bill Clinton. I urge you for your own good – don’t go there.
I realize he’s not one of your favorite people but the last time you went after him it cost you two House Speakers and he ended up more popular than when you started. Bill and Hillary Clinton are currently the two most popular politicians in the country.
More importantly, the Clintons have a very loyal fan base that despises Barack Obama and the current Democratic leadership. (Most of us believe that Bill Clinton shares our feelings.) Many Clinton fans (like myself) voted for John McCain and Sarah Palin four years ago. Some of us will be supporting Mitt Romney this year.
If you start attacking the Big Dawg you run the risk of alienating these Clinton Democrats. There are plenty of sleazy Democrats you can go after instead, like Ted Kennedy, John Edwards and Anthony Weiner.
Keep your eyes on the prize and the best of luck this November.
