Tapped out. I hate Pwogwessives:

"You're responding to something I did not write. I said that punditocracy responded to what they assumed the public wanted to hear.

The "core principle" of any politician is politics, and the democrats suck at it. David Mirzer is right: Kerry hemmed and hawed through various defenses of his vote. It doesn't matter what he "meant to say," His performances were pathetic.

The whole point of this blog is to affirm the moral seriousness the press and of political life. But there is no moral seriousness in political life, there's a moral seriouosness in intellectual life, and in the world outside the dreams of American progressivism there's an acknowledged contradiction between the two.
You should go see The Front Page.

I'd be ashamed to defend Clinton, or Gore, or Kerry, on any principle of my own...
beyond realism."
