Todd: Fear vs. Loathing -

Dems don't have to stir up loathing. It is already neck deep, all over the country.

Todd: Fear vs. Loathing - National Journal -

"WASHINGTON - If it wasn't clear last week, it became crystal clear Monday night that the 2006 midterm elections could be boiled down to a phrase made famous by 'gonzo' journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The Republicans are using 'fear' to motivate their voters and the Democrats are employing a message of 'loathing' to fire up their base.
President Bush succinctly reinforced the GOP message in his speech to the nation on Monday when he declared: 'The safety of America depends on the outcome of the battle in the streets of Baghdad.'

Digest that sentence for a moment.
