    Is John Kerry a Drama Queen?

    At the opening of this evening’s address by Senator Kerry he referred to the novelist who wrote that you can never go home. Of course, like you, I assumed it was a deft reference to the home state of his number two. Thomas Wolfe and his ties to the Ashville…

    A Taxing Question

    This was my initial reaction to the Edwards speech over at the Reason site. Upon reflection, I’m amazed at how few commentators outside of the in-house GOP axis have noted that fiscally Edwards laid out an essentially Mondale-era plan. I doubt we’ll get much different from John Kerry tonight.

    Re: A Good Read …

I’ll go with the headline: “Moore: Bush ‘Didn’t Tell the Truth.'” I would make a pot-and-kettle reference here, but insofar as Bush’s falsehood amounted to correctly citing British intelligence and the evidence that Bush…

Mike Easley’s favorite magazine, Mark Arend of Site Selection, says “It’s OK to Outsource.” Easley’s favorite press release pastime is to trumpet North Carolina’s “No. 1 business climate” ranking from Site Selection, an economic development rag whose depth extends only to the level of measuring business…

    Gotta pass along this great entry in our ongoing series of NC headlines, this one from the Monroe Enquirer Journal on the U.S. Senate race: Bowles taps family roots in stump stop A metaphor, a near-mixed metaphor, and alliteration all in one!…

    Re: Our lovable senior senator

    Undoubtedly, Edwards won’t be fielding any questions tonight, or at any other time if he can possibly avoid it, on the disconnect between his professed concern for the welfare of the unborn who might not have received the perfect medical attention (back when he was litigatin’ for a livin’) and…
