    Caveat investor

    Not that there is much to choose among the Democratic candidates when it comes to class warfare rhetoric (although Iowans preferred those who deliver it without foaming at the mouth), but Kerry and Edwards are emphatically not friendly towards people in (or who’d like to be in) what John Hood…

    Sympathy for UNCASG

    “New ASG Web site to ease work of president” states the headline. Boo-friggety-hoo for the poor head of the UNC Association of Student Governments. This organization is about as useful as a redundant appendix. So of course it has been granted a tremendous increase in money over…

    Karl Rove crying?

    That’s what the results from Iowa have done, claims Clintonian poli-guru Dick Morris. Morris sez if the Democrats put up a more middle-of-the-road candidate like John Edwards, then George Bush may have to deviate from a campaign script which had him facing either a liberal or ultra-liberal.

    RE: More Howling

    The first thing I thought of upon hearing Dean’s rant was Rick Flair, but a friend of mine suggested that it was Rick on a bad day. As he put it “Governor, I knew Ric Flair. I was friends with Ric Flair. And you, Governor Dean, are no Ric Flair.”…
