Democrats: What Not to Say

Good post from derby378 at Democratic Underground on the language Democrats should not use in the 2006 campaign.

DemocraticUnderground: What Democrats should never, never, NEVER say if they want to win in 2006

Go read the whole thing. Here's the executive summary:

Framing is important. How we say things it important. Don't say:

1. Terrorist Surveillance Program
2. Homeland Security
3. English as our "National Language"
4. War on Terror

Derby368 doesn't offer alternatives, here are mine. When those subjects are discussed, Democrats should say:

1. KGB Spy Program;

2. United States of America;

3. Strong America;

4. Quagmire.

And, as often as possible, say, Incompetence. Corruption. Cronyism.

What do you think?
