Charles Dean’s Rules of Infiltration: 1. No name calling. When we get people mad we lose all opportunity to reach either their minds or their hearts. Most of the people we’re talking to were fooled by others to believe that liberal politics are good and conservative politics are bad; very few are malicious in their intent. 2. Document all entries so that anyone whose interest you’ve piqued can find and read the source. If we get people reading good material, then they will educate themselves much faster than we can through short arguments in websites and social media.

Let's not sugarcoat it: we got our teeth kicked in on Tuesday. Sure, we added governorships and held our ground in the House, but we went backwards in the Senate and lost to an out-of-touch, incompetent, petty man who centered his campaign around Mitt Romney's bank account and Big Bird. We didn't get beaten by Bill Clinton in a great economy; we got beaten by another Michael Dukakis in the midst of a terrible economy. On the upside, if people have ever wondered what Jimmy Carter's second term would have looked like, then they're about to find out.
