President Obama made the point that Republicans have no ideas to help try and fix the country which they so willingly broke, but Britney Cantor from the just-say-no/Rush Limbaugh party does have a new, very super-duper-super-secret Gingrich-like plan that he feels will turn back the tide of resentment the country has for Republicans. Looking at the new polling, the GOP does have very big problems with the American people. Anyway, his plan is to try and sandbag the most inexperienced members of the Democratic Party and then put it on YouTube.

Foxx is part of a team of Republican members that House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) has put together to create embarrassing, YouTube-worthy moments for vulnerable Democratic freshmen.

Cantor’s floor staff has created a photo album to help identify the 42 most vulnerable Democrats. The aides send daily e-mails to the members of the attack team and alert lawmakers when these targeted members are speaking on the floor. They even draft quick scripts to help focus the questioning.

Democrats are now hip to the scam and rarely take the bait. A top aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) quickly ushers most junior members out of the chamber whenever Republicans launch an attack — even if the member is controlling debate.

But the guerrilla tactics — which are just about all the Republicans have — are sure to continue as long as Democratic leaders, in a time-honored bid to help junior members look productive, keep encouraging them to offer amendments and bills.

He's going with the Macaca Effect. Keith Olbermann does a good job exposing the Cantor Scripts. I mean, these fools need someone to write their lines for them. My God, check out the side-by-side Republican fools named Paul Brown and Jason Chaffetz as they recite their lines perfectly, but they forgot to memorize their lines. Or maybe they don't have the brain power to do that much.

It will take time for these newbies to learn how to debate on the floor, but how pathetic do the Republicans look when all they can do is use their membership to imitate Jesse Watters?

Down With Tyranny has much more.

Can you help us out?
