Twilight

I forgive that you say you love me; the powerful are always lied to since the weak are always driven by panic. Me, I cannot love what I can’t conceive, and you disclose virtually nothing: are you the hawthorn tree, … Continue reading

Laughing. Out. Loud.

From my friend Eric @ Divigate: I love it when elected officials use incorrect grammar in their political ads. You probably don’t have that in Pennsylvania, but in Iowa several of races feature candidates purposfully using incorrect grammar in an … Continue reading

Snark

Buried in a New York Times piece showcasing the idiotic rationale of swing voters was this priceless quote: Similarly, Joan Deane, 78, of Scarborough, Me., a registered Republican who is fond of the Bush family, said that she found Mr. … Continue reading

Four More Days

Look, fuck those swing voters. This election has already been decided:   Kerry 296, Bush 242. The results, from where I sit, are quite clear: If all the votes are counted, John Kerry will win. Clearly. Convincingly. And without need … Continue reading

Bush Loses Pennsylvania

Look, I know the Republicans are having wet dreams about stealing Pennsylvania away from the Democrats, but it just ain’t gonna happen. I was never a believer that this state would remain competitive in the first place. There’s just too … Continue reading

Caffeine

So yeah…I just stayed up for 38 hours straight, starting Thursday morning at 6am and ending Friday evening at 8pm. I had to get a project done and had missed too much time earlier in the week to get it … Continue reading

Wait…

Why are people sending money to Martha Stewart? Browsed on┬áCNN: Stewart also beseeched supporters, who she said have sent hundreds of letters in the past week, to stop including gifts and money. Instead, she asked gift-givers to make donations to … Continue reading

Bush Beats Kerry

In the first and second debates, John Kerry won simply by allowing the president to lose. Tonight though, the president came prepared and, particularly in the first half, beat Kerry soundly. Bush’s answers were, on the whole, much more robust … Continue reading

A Decisive Kerry Win

Amazing. I’d have to say the latter half of the debate was a draw. But in the first half, which is probably all most voters will watch at 9:00 on a Friday night, Kerry simply cleaned Bush’s clock. The president … Continue reading

M. A. D.

Dean responded to my indictment of Kerry’s and Edwards’ debate performances. I’m re-posting it here because, frankly, my response was too long, but also because I think it goes to the heart of what’s happened in this election. Aaron: spoken … Continue reading

Edwards Fails

So disappointing. Not just the debate, but the evenness of the press spin afterword. The fact is, Cheney came as close to steamrolling John Edwards as he could have come while still allowing the press to call it a draw … Continue reading

Dissent

I soldier in Iraq told me this: I think the majority of people over here will vote for Bush. I could be wrong, but that is the impression that I get. Even if Kerry’s service has been proven, he used … Continue reading

Kerry Won?

What a classic example of groupthink in the national media. Immediately after the debate I thought Kerry turned in a subpar performance on substance, but was still a bit better than Bush. The pundits apparently agreed that Kerry had edged … Continue reading

Kerry for Secretary-General

Allow me to diverge for a moment from the press’s congratulatory orgy over John Kerry’s debate performance. Those of us who look for more than mere gaffes and atmospherics recognize that, to gain our true confidence rather than tentative votes, … Continue reading
