ScrappleFace: Dems ‘New Direction’ Sharp Break with Past Policies ScrappleFace: Dems ‘New Direction’ Sharp Break with Past Policies

ScrappleFace: Dems ‘New Direction’ Sharp Break with Past Policies maintains the site's reputation for humor with this piece. In particular, I loved:
In a sharp break with the historical stereotype of Democrats as anti-business, big spenders who are weak on defense and have few moral principles, the ‘New Direction for America’ calls for a crackdown on big business, a higher minimum wage, increased taxpayer subsidies for colleges, alternative energy and stem cell research and a retreat from Iraq. It makes no mention of moral issues like abortion or same-sex marriage.
The relevance of the number "6" is then explored:
While Democrats call the six-point plan Six for ‘06, an unnamed Republican strategist noted that the GOP is “already six for six in Congressional elections going back to 1994.”
