Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

Tuesday, November 13, 2007 :::

On the one hand, I'd like to see John Edwards supporters committed for falling for his shtick, but it's not like he's the only candidate insulting our intelligence:
Again, can someone please explain to me, how asking the junior Senator from New York state whether she agrees with the governor of the state (and a close political ally) on the question of drivers licenses for illegals is even remotely wrong, never mind some sort of vicious, Nazi-like, personal assault on truth, decency, and Hillary Clinton's integrity? I really, really, don't get it.
What's really disgusting is that the Clinton plan will probably work - just keep playing up the notion that Russert did something wrong, and people will forget the actual "sin" of treating a political candidate like a political candidate.

I'd like to think that John Edwards's gambit of unilaterally reducing Congressmen's remuneration is too transparently ludicrous to succeed, but I fear I'm too optimistic.
