They're Republicans but Keep It a Secret

According to The Hill, many Republicans running for re-election are not bragging about their party affiliation. They don't want to remind you that they are Republicans. Here is an excerpt from The Hill:

...Reynolds, a 30-year veteran of upstate New York politics and a former GOP minority leader in the state Assembly, is one of several House GOP leaders who do not mention their party affiliation on their campaign websites. In ads posted on their sites, Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Republican Conference Chairwoman Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio) also do not state their Republican credentials.

Republican leaders have said they face a “headwind” in the sixth year of President Bush’s term because voters are frustrated by the war in Iraq and ever-rising gasoline prices. Because voters cannot direct their anger at Bush, many GOP congressional incumbents fear that voters might direct their frustration at them...

Seriously, do these Republicans think we're stupid? We know they are Republicans. We know their party has created the largest debt in our country's history. We know that this administration and the Republicans have been miserable failures. They don't want to be pictured with their Republican President. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
