My day job is making highly annoying demands on my time this morning, so I'll leave this rather open-ended, but I think personally, when I agree with an issue, I'm rather relieved, if not delighted, to be played.
Whereas I'd prefer to toss all the distorted loadings of an issue out the window as the very first act so we can then start to examine it factually and logically, and come to some conclusion as to what the best policy might be, and then see what we can do to convince people of that, doing our best to keep party, prejudice, and nonsense aside.

Weird, eh?

In the realword, however, most find that as productive as banging their head on their desk, Gary. Not that it's not the most conceptually sound approach, just that it doesn't seem to work that way.

What would the Democratic analog to this strategy be?

You know Gromit, I started and rejected several replies to your question, but just don't think I'm the best person to answer that (despite my painful attempts to be balanced in the post).

Would any of our Republican friends like to answer Gromit's question?

I don't think there's really an advantage to be gained by loosing dogs that won't hunt. The "pro" outrage and the "con" outrage seem to balance each other out. (Am I just paraphrasing Edward?)
