Part Of The Way With LBJ


Remember “framing,” the magic talking cure that would build Democratic bodies twelve different ways and let them triumph over those smooth talkin’ GOPS?

Interest cooled, the Republicans lost the election, and we’ve all moved on. But Democrats remain supplicants, as witness n the struggle to name the Education Department building after Lyndon Johnson. The name finally went though, but at the price of naming a Missouri post office after Rush Linbaugh’s grandfather. Presidents come and go, but fathead talkers are forever?
