Pardon the Interruption has Role Play as a regular feature where Tony or Mike pretend to be someone else and answer questions as if they are that person- just as Democratic candidates do every election season, pretending to be just like their Republican opponents, only less so. Not a winning strategy so far. When will they learn?

Why are Democratic incumbents arrant cowards? They are like a professional football team that goes into a prevent defense immediately after the opening kickoff, afraid to dare anything at any time that might conceivably offend the hard core right wing voters who would never vote for them anyway. What would have been so hard about running on the undeniable advances of the Health Care Reform Act- ending the life time cap on insurance benefits, denials of coverage for pre-existing conditions, and allowing children to stay on their parents' plans up to age 26? Why not just run as who you are? Liberal, progressive, forward thinking, logical- not crazy, hateful or greedy. Oh well, maybe in two or four or six or 20 more years they will get it. Meanwhile, the rest of us are stuck with the results of their refusal to run as themselves.
