Just Read The Headlines

Christopher Hayes

Since other people are doing it, I'll jump into the fray. Here's my advice for the Kerry campaign: just read the headlines. Really, I think Kerry should begin every stump appearance with a little riff where he just picks up a local paper and reads the headlines that contain bad news: casualties in Iraq, layoffs, foreclosures, high oil prices, record deficits. The biggest advantage Bush has is that the news of the campaign will ecplise the actual news of the country and the world. The more the electorate forgets what is actually happening, the better it will be for Bush. So Kerry needs to use the campaign to remind people of just how screwed up everything is. This strikes me as a good way of doing it.

Be one of the first

Help kick off the new era of In These Times! Without a media that brings people together and creates a written record of the struggles of workers, their voices will be fragmented and forgotten.

The mission of In These Times is to be that written record, and to guide and grow those movements.

We have a lot of work ahead of us, and that work starts today. Early support is the most valuable support, and that’s why we’re asking you to pitch in now. If you are excited for this new era of In These Times, please make a donation today.
