That Politico story on CC’s new PR strategy is prompting gales of laughter among CC opponents. They seem to think the new strategy will be to have Bill Gates go on camera to shed tears and plead that “it’s for The Children!” But I don’t think that’s what the CC backers mean by “emotion.”
Here’s a shorter version of the article:
- CC supporters admit they were wrong to focus their strategy on bland, vague pronouncements coupled with accusations that their opponents were crazy or dishonest.
- So instead they’re going to focus on whipping up a frenzy of mob anger and directing it against their enemies.
Seriously, read the article. “Step one” of the new strategy is literally “get Americans angry.”
Guess what? They already are.
