The latest post on Twitter from the long penised men of The Lincoln Project hurts a Republican insurrectionist that I don't like.

Yay Republicans hurting Republicans I don't like! Yay!

Next ad, make it about how Vladimir Putin is a homophobic, misogynistic, white supremacist, hellbent on defunding America, crazy conspiracy theorist, public Christianity grandstander who betrays Jesus by enriching himself and his pals, such as Kirill Dimitriyev who met Erik Prince, the brother of the former Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, in Seychelles.

This is where the Democrats' media and messaging groups should be taking notes and learning how an actually effective attack messaging machine should work. Stop ceding the media war to the right by not even making an attempt!

I love Rick Wilson for how good he is.

I hate him for being on the other side, however that seems to be flipping.

He is super pissed that the party he helped build collectively shiat on him and that man has a huge axe to grind.

So do I, but the pro-business wing of the Republican Party still clings to the discredited ideology of trickle-down economics.  We need a center-right party that values evidence over ideology.

This does not bother me one bit.

I have no idea what party I'd be in if there were a variety of choices.  There are some things that republicans claim to care about (National debt...lawl) that I actually do. Just no-the-fark-where close enough to abandon the values the left.  Five, maybe. six parties would be awesome, people can learn to work together.

And what did the Democrat-affiliated groups do? The fact the Lincoln Project is better known then say, MeidasTouch, means they were more effective at getting their message out there - which is the whole point.

But, for a moment, let's put that aside. The Democrats and the progressive movement SUCK at getting their message across to anyone outside of the left. Which is a shame because the policies they promote resonate with most people once they're understood. Messaging is important - my Fark handle is an example of loosing control of a narrative and the results thereof. I just want the left to actually acknowledge their weakness in this matter and swallow their pride long enough to learn these skills themselves.

Yep, and that's fine. They're ex-GOP political strategists, they tended to target close races because that's what political strategists do - try and win races. Close ones in a polarized electorate are where the action's at. They've been working the margins on those tight races against us for years and it is an effective way to gain power. They've been right to do it, just for all the wrong people. Nice to see them do it for the right people, farkin finally.

And on the subject of what did they do other than getting under Trump's skin... that was actually a big thing they did. Think about all the wonderful self-owns Trump himself and his campaign did after Trump literally saw the ad they directed at him personally and placed in the one market the White house cable feed comes from. They goaded him in to firing Parscale, lashing out at people around him, and at other Republicans. Goading him in to making self-defeating statements in fits of anger. Goaded him so bad his campaign has to start spending millions running ads in the freakin Washington DC market just so the baby tangerine would see them and believe they were trying to counter. Trump has EASILY discernable triggers, and they pushed them as hard as they could. It helped. The more worked up and out of control he was, the more damaging it was to the GOP in the election.

Obviously, this was a big effort by lots of people. Everyone sane wanted Trump gone, and people who actually organized and drove votes on the ground made the most important impact - but LP played their small part, and helped too. Credit where credit is due.

Speaking of which, I said many times I was happy for their help in the election, and I reserved judgement on what would happen after. That we'd just have to wait and see if they would be true to their word and support Biden's agenda and continue to attack the rot in the political right - or if the critics were right and they'd heel turn immediately after the election. Actions speak louder than words. It's still early, only a couple months after the election, but so far they've stayed true to their word. They're continuing to go for the throats of the worst elements of the GOP, and they're continuing to not have any problems with Biden or his agenda, and so far have expressed no desire to do anything but support it and him. Sounds good to me. Keep it up, peeps.

It isn't hard to talk about progressive policies, it's that people don't want to talk about them. America's news media is basically Fight Club for out-of-shape or behind-the-times politicians and pundits.

"As Common Cause notes in its position paper, 'In 2002, more than half of TV stations in the nation's top 50 markets completely ignored state and congressional elections in their highest rated local news programs in the weeks leading up to those elections, with large station owners offering the least election coverage of all.' McChesney takes it further, saying, 'What little coverage there is, is mostly gossip, spin, and speculation, or basically what's spoon-fed to them by party elites and insiders and big shots accepting all their biases as the appropriate way to view the world. It's impossible to exaggerate just how nutritionless this so-called journalism is.' In other words, viewers of most stations get lots of Donald Trump news, but almost nothing about city council elections or even state representatives.

Additionally, Common Cause's Todd O'Boyle told The A.V. Club that 'election season is a gravy train for broadcasters,' as well, meaning that most local stations 'book record revenues for political ads.' According to O'Boyle, 'in many communities, voters are seeing more election content in the form of advertising than they are in the form of news reporting,' saying there have even been instances of local newscasts cutting their broadcasts short in order to air more political ads. With politics becoming increasingly polarized over the past 20-odd years, absence of objective local news doesn't help ease that struggle, nor does it make most people think that there's anything to be done anywhere close to home.

While some people -- especially younger people -- might say, 'who cares? I get my news from social media anyway,' O'Boyle points out that, 'the majority of news coverage, and particularly local news coverage, still comes from local newsrooms.' In other words, just because you saw some article about a police scandal on social media doesn't mean it wasn't uncovered by some intrepid reporter first. Additionally, says O'Boyle, 'a healthy news ecosystem' is essential if you want 'to cut through some of the viral nonsense that's getting passed around' these days."

Thanks for responding. I don't disagree with you on the focus of our mainstream media - that is an excellent point I did not cover, but is relevant to this discussion. It's why I feel that the fact the Lincoln Project was able to interject their message into the public consciousness without the backing of those same established interests should be of great interest to progressives as a whole.

But in a greater context, it should not stop there. Look at how the right on any given topic can provide talking points which their audience can easily drop in their daily conversations, arguments which (true or more often not) can be repeated on facebook or on the job and sound just reasonable enough to sway opinions. There is no reason progressives cannot do the same with their policies, (Medicare 4 all is a good example).

In the end, I agree that progressives pushing real change have an extremely difficult uphill battle to share their policies. I just want them to have every advantage they can, because it is needed.

Annoying evil is a great achievement in it's own right, but I know two voters who left the Trump cult thanks to watching their ads after seeing one of them.  One was a six or seven bumper sticker MAGAt.

I'm sure there were more, and I'm not sure they weren't the margin of victory in some important places.
