It's always someone elses fault

I was just listening to some of the latest Republican spin defending Tom Delay. I have long thought it's mighty convenient that every Republican problem is always someone else's fault and that the people bringing the story to light are just plain bad people. But, lately it's reached the realm of the absurd. It's so absurd I don't think anyone but the party sheep buy it anymore. Americans just aren't that stupid. The dog ate my homework only goes so far. Billy down the street broke Mrs. Smith's window I swear. It's gotten to the point that Republicans sound like 5 year olds who dropped a glass of milk in the Kitchen.

The latest spin is that the prosecutor bringing charges against Tom Delay is playing politics and is a rabid democrat. I am willing to wait for a trial to determine the truth. But, for now the spin sounds an awful lot like, "the teachers out to get me Mom, I swear, the teacher hates me".

Spin strategies only work for a certain amount of time and then tactics must be changed to be effective. The public catches on and stops believing everything they hear.

The Rovian tactics of the RNC and GOP have been effective for many years but finally, hopefully, people within and without the republican party are starting to see through their antics.

Fortunately, they haven't developed a new means of controlling public opinion - yet. It will come after a time. The question is will the democrats or the republicans first find the means to sway America to their way of thinking.

The spin antics no longer hide the truth.
