Today's Links

Christopher Hitchen's writes a good post mortem on Dr. Dean. I agree with his observations, but still feel it premature. Nothing to do with Dean's abilities, but with Kerry's inabilities. Dean may be the last soldier on the field of battle.

I strongly suspect that Roy Disney is showing the mettle of Uncle Walt in Comcast's unsolicited bid for Disney. Wouldn't it be interesting to see Comcast take over, Eisner booted, and Roy seated?

This article furthers the discussion we have been having about fallout from McAuliffe's decision to front load the primaries. Interesting corollary to Gore's 2000 run. Gore got the early nod because of his incumbency as VP. He then proceeded to take the punishment of an incumbent - a much longer period of time for the opposition to work. Perhaps that is why incumbent VPs have such a difficult time being elected? Does this reflect somewhat upon the time for the assault in addition to the administration record? Kerry may have the weight of time without the power of the administration.

Thomas Sowell writes of ill-placed attempts to makes everyone between the Czechs and Germans.

William Saletan writes for Slate that the Dems are Kerried Away. They have voted for a candidate not because they agree with his views but because they think he can win. That type of support is a mile wide and an inch deep.
