GOP Debate: Appealing To The 24%ers

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

After the Fox GOP debate in Orlando, Florida, Frank "I test talking points for a living" Luntz was in charge of the "dial group" of reactionary Republican voters. What a scary, angry bunch they were. Clearly Hillary-hate is at an all-time high, based on their responses. This one, I loved:

I think people have very long memories and what it was like to live through that hell and I don’t think people want to go through that again. Nobody wants to revisit history in that context and going through Hillary Clinton is just nothing but socialism and communism.

Yeah, those eight years of peace and prosperity (with a budget surplus, no less) was just hell. (/snark) Socialism and communism? WTF?? I think it just shows how mindless the hate can be.

At the end, Frank threw his BFF Sean Hannity a bone by first letting the dial group trounce McCain and then allowing a handful of dial groupers talk about about how strong Rudy Giuliani is.
