Cool Hand Luke Explains Democrat "Successes"

Chidike Okeem at the American Thinker has identified the latest Democratic talking point to explain their failures in polling and likely failure at the electoral polls. The latest talking point is that the Democrats have not skillfully explained their legislative "successes."

Of course those successes are the widely unpopular destruction of everyone's health care freedom, the wasteful overspending porkulus bill that has predictably failed to solve our economic stagnation, the massive corporate welfare n the form of bailouts, and the nationalization of two of our finest automobile manufacturers, and the expansion of fraud and waste in the form of earmarks.

If these are successes, give me failure every time.

Here is where I disagree with Mr. (or Ms. as the case may be) Okeem. This talking point, this claim of a failure to explain is nothing new. President Obama has been saying the same thing about the awful health care plan for over a year.

Memo to Democrats: You can't make terrible legislation any better by explaining it again and again. When it is bad, it is bad. And these "successes" are worse than that. If you think there has merely been a failure to communicate, you remind me of the evil Captain in Cool Hand Luke, who said in the movie a coule of times, what we've got here is a failure to communicate. He also said,
Captain, Road Prison 36: You gonna get used to wearin' them chains afer a while, Luke. Don't you never stop listenin' to them clinking. 'Cause they gonna remind you of what I been saying. For your own good.

Luke: Wish you'd stop bein' so good to me, cap'n.
Shades of Obamacare and the Nanny state.
