I would hope the Democrats would not be like the Chiefs. Why? It’s this incident with Mark Foley. The Democrats are scoring a lot of points on it. But what is it really? It’s a fumble.
In football, a fumble allows your team to grab the ball and switch to offense. You might even score a touchdown. But it’s rare a fumble alone will win a game, and one fumble definitely not win you the playoffs. To win, you must have a powerful offense and score points yourself.
So the Democrats must set forth policies and programs on their own in order to win elections, not just wait for another Republican fumble because probably they will soon have a fumble of their own. Then it’s back to being on defense full time.
