I consider myself educated and well read, but have learned much over this past year about politics.  Recently I read some comments about “The Overton Window” and realized I did not know this concept very well.  Or should I say this strategy.  I found this page to explain it.  Thanks to the blog Corrente.

Here is the definition from Wikipedia:

The Overton window is a concept in political theory, named after the former vice president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, Joe Overton, who developed the model. It describes a “window” in the range of public reactions to ideas in public discourse, in a spectrum of all possible options on an issue.

Big Man from the North (1931)

This video reminds me of a group of folks I know well over at Mudflats against SWWNBN.  Time to drive her out of town.
