Ed Schultz on Air America said, "It's Bush that did the cuttin' and runnin' -- in Afghanistan. That's why we don't have Bin Laden to this day."

Can we make a meme of this?

I've been perplexed by this myself. "Cut and run" is an especially insidious meme for us old-fasioned guys since it implies cowardice and attacks the democrats "manhood". Barbara Boxer, the only Senator with any balls anyway Smile, may be immune, but the rest of the Dems need to learn to deflect this in a hurry.

Fortunately,I've found a great blog - frameshop - which has already done some work on this:

I feel like this guy is a kindred spirit. He's doing with frames (the meme's more more tactical cousin) what we are doing with Memes.

I'd encourage anyone to explore the sites archives. He had a great frame for gay marriage: "Do we have time for this?". The frame goes that with our country facing war, corruption, tyranny and financial ruin, does congress really have nothing better to worry about than gays wanting to marry?

I thought it was quite compelling, and used it on a conservative Christian with great effect. I suspect he was going to tell me why opposes gay marriage, but instead of trying to get into it, he paused and then said "yeah, I guess it can wait".

There are some other gems out there too. Enjoy!
