War to Nowhere
I'd like to pass on another framing suggestion. It comes from Ned Lamont, the erstwhile primary opponent to Joe Lieberman who, in a recent event (described in this MyDD diary), described two things that led him to consider entering the race: The Alaska "Bridge to Nowhere" and Bush's "War to Nowhere", Iraq.
I think the "Road to Nowhere" frame is an excellent way of describing the failings of the Republican agenda, both domestically and internationally. It creates a single image that ties both failures together and presents a concrete image of a bridge (a huge engineering feat) that serves no purpose other than to line the pockets of Republican supporters with taxpayer dollars.
"Health Segregation Accounts"
"War to Nowhere"
Lather, Rinse, Repeat.
