If you do everything (legal) you’ll win!

President Lyndon Johnson liked to tell his campaign staff, “If we do EVERYTHING” we’ll win!

Given his penchant for stealing elections and buying votes, I’d propose a slight modification to that catch phrase: “If you do everything legal, you’ll win!”

I’ll get back to that, but first here’s some background on why in the world I’m quoting LBJ…

What Nearly Dying Taught Me About Politics & Family – Erick Erickson

Podcast Interview with Erick Erickson

Erick’s ICU doctor thought the chart he was looking at was for a corpse. Erick should have been dead. He’s been working in politics for more than a decade, but that experience taught him more about making an impact than any campaign study.
