Democratic Stategery

Cross Posted From: Article of Faith:

Apologies if this has been mentioned already, but major props go to Emerging Democratic Majority for this find: a new online magazine called The Democratic Strategist which brings together “every sector of the Democratic community” to “a place where the latest research in social science and public opinion could be applied to the design of Democratic political strategy.”

It’s a great looking magazine, and definitely worth a glance (especially if you’re a pointy-headed social science type who like polls, numbers and strategery…cough, ahem).

    Speaking of strategy, has anybody seen the new campaign ad against Felix Macacca?

    In my book this ad is absolutely devastating.

    I did mention it Todd. And it deserves a repeat.

    Still have to get back to one of the essays from the premier issue. I may be a social science type who likes polls, numbers and strategy, but I fail the pointy head. 😉

    Nick, have you checked it out?

  3. Sorry Ginny…as usual I’m playing catch-up from a months worth of emails, notifications, etc. But you’re right, it is worth taking a look at. Particularly Nick, since the site is heavy on numbers and analysis.

    We can’t keep up with it every day – especially when you write your own blog too. And I really do think it is worthy of the repeat.

    Also though Ron would find it soothing…

    I was too tired to mention that ad – definitely a good one and could be used in plenty of other campaigns. Alaska comes to mind, especially since the Stryker force being redeployed to Baghdad after some of the troops had gotten home did not go over at all well in a state that is heavily military, active and retired. Retiring Don Young woud be the best thing they could do (in my dreams).

    I really question if the one complaint that a responder made is valid. The ad will not go over in Virginia because the guy sounds like some one from the Sopranos? He has a pretty tame Jersey/New York accent. That overrides the power of the message?
