Scare Tactics

Tim Noah of Slate uses the subhead "Re-elect Bush, and you might get Jerry Springer, too." for his article on the 2004 electoral battle for Ohio. The premise is a bit lame; that in an Ohio Democratic Party humiliated by a Bush victory here "there will be no Democrat powerful enough to dissuade Springer from running, or to dissuade party leaders from supporting him." Outside of Noah's pep talk to Ohio voters, you know - avoid being a national laughingstock by voting Kerry - the piece is a pretty good look at the Dems' strategy for winning here.
