Republican Survivor

I've been surfing around the internet, as I usually do, when I found this interesting site. DTripTV.org. I was intrigued. It's a cartoon Republican survivor. Based on popular internet "flash cartoons", it potrays Republicans George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John Ashcroft, Katherine Harris, Tom DeLay and Ann Coulter in a Survivor style web cartoon. After each episode, someone needs to be voted off (last "webisode", it was either Ann Coulter or John Ashcroft... Ashcroft got the boot), and then they go onto the next episode. It's pure genius, and funny.

But if you'll notice, the title bar reads "DCCC". I'm not sure if you know what that means, because at first I didn't. So I read the disclaimer at the bottem, hoping it would elaborate on the confusing acronym. It reads:

Paid for by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee, 430 South Capitol Street, SE Washington, DC 20003, 202-863-1500. www.dccc.org

So the DEMOCRATS made this cartoon? The Democrats, the losers, the ones who let themselves be kicked around by the Republicans? The Democrats, the ones who practically HANDED Bush the 2000 election? The Democrats, the ones who nominated John "My face is made of wood" Kerry for president? THOSE Democrats? How is this possible? How did they do this? How did they get the balls?

Apparently, the Democrats are really gearing up. The Democrats, having won in South Dakota (now having an all Democratic delegation in a supposedly "red state") and in a few other key states (detailed in a previous post), are really gearing up. This anger over Bush has reached fever pitch, and Democrats are not letting the Republicans go on this one. They're going to fight with everything they have, everything from hard-fought campaigns to subsersive propoganda in the form of cartoons. I mean, this kind of raunchy anti-Bush flash stuff is usually made by those who are not professionally involved. But now, apparently, the Democrats are starting to realize that you can't win by playing nice. Hell, this still is nice compared to what the Republicans have been doing. But maybe this is a clean version of the Republican tricks that came to full fruitation in the 1992 election. Maybe the Democrats think they can win by instead of being nasty and dirty, be hilarious and truthful.

Oh, and at least the DCCC was up front about making this Flash cartoon. I'm sure if the RNC were to do the same thing, they'd create a series of shell organizations and PACs to hide their trail... not because they necessarily have anything to hide, but because they're SO FUCKING USED TO IT.
