It's not just about likability and electability. It's about the issues and who the electorate trusts most on the issues. As of today, Democrats are trusted most of almost every key issue, but do we need to do better?

There are many things the GOP has either trumpeted, co-opted, been inadvertently given, or outright stolen during the past 15 years: terms of language, ideologies and philosophies, even tangible things. These things are either now found to be somewhat (and that's being nice) lacking in the GOP; some are even blatantly contradictory. As a Democrat, and actually as an AMERICAN, I say, LET'S TAKE THEM BACK!
I'll start with the somewhat obvious things and go from there; feel free to add to the list.
The Constitution, in all its glory: Let's TAKE IT BACK!

After Steve Colbert, Try My New Ice Cream
By Brent Budowsky
You might have heard that Ben and Jerry's has begun a new Steve Colbert ice cream flavor. Which gave me the idea for the new ice cream company I am announcing today.
So many others have profiteered from this war, why not me?
Our landmark flavor will be Dixie Chicks Vanilla. Pure and tasty, the perfect flavor for the discerning man or woman who likes truth with a bite.

In the bout between Stephen Colbert and Bill O'Reilly on the Colbert Report, Colbert slipped in a subtle but cutting blow. When greeted by boos from the audience, O'Reilly said "That's Jon Stewart in that plaid shirt!" to which Colbert responded "I have a restraining order against Jon Stewart... that man is a sexual predator... you have no idea what that's like."
Oh, but he does. He does all to well.
If you watch closely, O'Reilly seems to be caught off guard by it.
It was a veiled reference to a sexual harassment suit filed against O'Reilly from a former employee of his, which resulted in a multimillion-dollar settlement.
