Sista Souljah, Part Deux
Alan, over at The Yellow Line has two interesting posts about the Rove incident. The first piece is about the Dems rejecting groups on the left that do fit Rove's definition of wimpy liberals like the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition. I think that's a good start, but I would also add Michael Moore and MoveOn.org as well. The Dems need to do what former President Clinton did in his first run for the White House in 1992 to Sista Souljah. As you might remember, Sista Souljah was this rapper and activist who spouted some incidendiary and prejudiced comments related to the LA riots of that year. At a confernence, Clinton denounced her and her racist beliefs. It was seen as a moment where the Democrats were standing up to the far left that had hijacked the party. I think the Dems need to do that again with these groups that present the view that all Democrats or liberals are cowards.
Alan also has a second piece about how Rove's comments were a trap for Democrats. Good read.
