The Use To Defuse Strategy
The Howard Dean campaign really should use the Fox News image of "Howard Dean Loses His Temper!" as the next ironic fundraiser. It will win them money and praise, force the media to cover the issue as the Dean campaign is framing it, and send a warning to the media and Bush campaign that the "use to defuse" strategy will be in full effect against negative reporting and dirty politics.
I'd also like to see Wolf Blitzer sponsor a new poll: Who has the worst temper . . . Howard Dean or George W. Bush?
