Does the West Wing control the Democratic Party.

First it was Governor Howard Dean, who patterned every aspect of his life, right down to his doctor wife after the the Character Jed Bartlett from the West Wing.

Now the Kerry crew has jumped on the West Wing bandwagon. Reminiscent of the West Wing's re-election campaign theme"Let Bartlett be Bartlett", the Kerry campaign has chosen as their theme: "'Let America be America again' (like it was in 1857? or 1936? or 1977?)

I have no idea what that means, and even from an objective viewpoint, "Steady Leadership in a Time of Change" is better.

Both themes are sort wussified, but that's twenty first century politics for ya.

How about this one instead :

John Kerry for President: Someone has to lead the Retreat!
