Uncle Jim’s Phantom Stimulus Plan

by Philip Baruth

When Peter Clavelle went up against Uncle Jim in 2004, he built his entire campaign around fixing health care. Douglas, for his part, built his entire campaign around fixing Peter Clavelle, and fixing him but good. Mostly this was accomplished with an attack ad showing nothing but Clavelle fumbling the roll-out of his own long-touted health care initiative. Just raw footage of the trainwreck. Now, in a nice bit of karma, someone’s done the same for Douglas, and the roll-out of his phantom stimulus plan. Sweet.
