Tortoise and the Hare or Pepe Le pew

The Democrats will have two choices for approaching the '06 and '08 elections: they can do the tortoise and the hare approach or the Pepe Le pew approach. Here is the story of the "Tortoise and the Hare":

"WHAT a dull, heavy creature," says the Hare, "is this Tortoise!"

"And yet," says the Tortoise, "I'll run with you for a wager."

"Done," says the Hare, and then they asked the Fox to be the judge.

They started together, and the Tortoise kept jogging on still, till he came to the end of the course.

The Hare laid himself down midway and took a nap; "for," says he, "I can catch up with the Tortoise when I please."

But it seems he overslept himself, for when he came to wake, though he scudded away as fast as possible, the Tortoise had got to the post before him and won the wager.

The Democrats can say to themselves that Bush is so bad that we can just take a nap and win the elections. No proposed agenda or platform that actually solves or helps anything. Just spend their whole time criticizing Bush.

They could also take a different approach and actually promote a platform with their detailed solutions to problems such as raising taxes, cutting the military, dooming Iraqis to slaughter like happened after we pulled out of Vietnam, more dependence on foreign oil, tank the economy by enslaving us to the Kyoto protocol, etc. This would be the Pepe Le pew approach. The voters would react to that just like the cat Penelope in the cartoon.
