"The Multilevel Marketing of the President"

Posted by DavidNYC

The NYT Magazine (in tomorrow's edition) has a mondo cover story on the Bush operation in Ohio. From the title alone, I'm assuming that there's a bit of an Amway-esque quality to what the GOP is doing in the Buckeye State. If I catch a few free minutes on a study break, I'll try to post some thoughts.

P.S. DemFromCT has some comments over at Kos.

Kerry's disappointing no-show at the March for Choice this weekend makes me less than sanguine about his ability to counter Bush's pushes. I like the Amway reference: "person to person marketing" is a potent strategy (as the Dean campaign proved) which I'd hate to see work for Bush but I wouldn't trust a bottle of laundry detergent sold me by the GOP farther than I could throw it.

Kerry didn't have to show up at the March for Choice. He addressed the gathering the day before and received the endorsement of Planned Parenthood. Besides if he's there, the story's about him being there -- not about the million people who turned up on the Mall to support reproductive choice.
