Hey, it’s not completely in jest.
If the pervasive meme hamstrung to the Dems has been “lack of message,” there are signs of a paradigmatic shift. It’s early yet, but leading indicators — visual and otherwise — (and I’m not just referring to the hottie watch) suggest a growing receptivity to the minority. If this new trend takes hold, the ’06 line on the party could be: Democrats are sexy! Attractive, once again.
