Destroying Democratic grassroots candidates through legal attacks on a local level at a rate seven times the expected levels allows Republicans to destroy grassroots candidates, usually permanently, and flies under the radar so as not to form a pattern in national consciousness.
Epluribus Media has done a study comparing the rate charges made against Democrats, Republicans, and Independents over the past six years and has found that Democratic state and national candidates for office were charged only at slightly higher rates, unlike Krugman's claims. However, at the local level where it is more likely to pass unnoticed, Democratic candidates were charged at seven times the expected rate: a rate higher than racial profiling in traffic situations, which has recently been made subject to monitoring and regulation.

Over at Firedoglake, they have an ad that you will want to watch over and over and will go around singing to yourself afterward. It could be the Democratic message in a bottle. It was done by an ad campaign worker for Coleen Rowley, who, it seems, is willing to put it into a generic form that could be used by Democrats across the country.

I know that it's the middle of the night over there. I live in Europe. I wish I were there so I could do more than send money.
Howie Klein is putting it all together.
You know, what we have going for us that is better than money is that we are the creative people, the intelligentsia, the cool crowd, funny, original, direct and real, and we speak to the heart. At least when we do we blow people away. And this little ditty is a hoot.
