Don't Mention The..... Anything

Who'd have guessed that the Democrat primaries would end up with Hillary as the sane, middle of the road candidate ? Meanwhile, Obama is such a strong candidate that we're not allowed to discuss anything about him.

Amongst the things we can't mention are his middle name, his foreign policy and his wife's goofy speeches. Actually, I understand why the Democrats are doing this - it's a natural strategy when the polls show your party's most consistent candidate is 'Generic Democrat'. Once the public gets wind of just how plain weird the average Democrat candidate is, their support collapses.

This is part of a more general phenomenon. Liberals don't do well once the public understands what they actually believe, hence why the left is obsessed with closing down debate with laws on hate speech and the like.
