A paradise for a sect. Political notes and scattered sapience, inter alia, for libertarian-conservatives, political junkies, and other, assorted bright and curious people....
The President, in the view from her, won all three debates. I know, it's common knowledge/convention wisdom that Bush looked awkward and lost the first debate, but sometimes an otherwise dull affair turns on one line. The President managed such a line: "I'm not exactly sure what you mean, ‘passes the global test,’ you take pre-emptive action if you pass a global test."
It's a vast ammunition depot into itself, and it buttresses the "l" word.
The Washington Postreports/argues that there will be scads of "complaints about voting rights violations" this November, and that the Bush Justice Department is not prepared to handle the oncoming rancor.
Just so we know who win by January 20.
The New York Timeshas decided that Ralph will be a factor in nine States: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Wisconsin. They further argue that Ralph could tip the balance in Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Wisconsin.
Of Kerry, Ralph says:
"He's not his own man," Mr. Nader said on Tuesday in a telephone interview from California. "Because he takes the liberals for granted, he's allowing Bush to pull him in his direction. It doesn't show much for his character."
Like I've said, Kerry isn't anything but a puddle of ambition. He'll give voice to whatever suits him then at a given time.
