Campaign Narratives Revisited: GOP “Handicapped”

Bag is in summer mode this week, recharging for the conventions. In the spirit of “what goes around, comes around,”  we have curated a group of posts that say as much about where we are or what we’re seeing now as what we saw at the time.   On each, we’ve added a few current thoughts. As always, we are interested in your take. We will be back in real time on the 20th.

We’re thinking now that the early campaign narrative remains pretty much intact: Obama vs. the Seven Dwarfs.

Here’s the original June 11, 2011 post.

***************************************

1. Bad news for Romney but even worse for Hunstman (shrunken before he started).

2. Mormon-on-Mormon violence.

3. If I was Herman Cain, would I be pissed or flattered?

4. Letting the women off with a wave, puts the men in the middle.

5. God bless Iowa. Bachmann the closest challenger!

6. Actually sets up Obama as the biggest loser. Title sees him vulnerable to midgets. Also plays “uppity” stereotype in looking down on people.

    Frighteningly true headline. The voting population and the leadership are getting progressively meaner and stupider.

    He could lose because “serious” journalists consider Paul Ryan to be serious. Ryan is a whackjob of the first magnitude.
