Dr. Frist’s Diagnosis

Hendrik Hertzberg of The New Yorker (online) offers us his take on a recent email sent out bythe NRSC, in which the fear of brown people invading us and ragheads killing us is set aside for a more immediate fear: the Democrats winning the 2008 general election by a landslide.

In key states, news accounts indicate Democrats are outpacing Republicans registering voters. We also know Barack Obama’s campaign is utilizing the Internet to raise record amounts of money to support his campaign and Democrats nationally … all in the hope that new voters and record resources will produce a Democrat landslide victory this fall.

There’s so much at risk, and conservatives I talk with from all across the country are feeling the rumblings of “what could be.” But we must urgently realize that is “what WILL be” if we don’t energize our grassroots and get to work right away.

Follow the link to read the rest of the email, as well as Hertzberg’s hypothetical “analysis”. It’s well worth it.
