A quick rundown of the posts I have read during my travels around the series of tubes.
- Frank Rich:Clinton fans don’t see their standard-bearer’s troubles this way. In their view, their highly substantive candidate was unfairly undone by a lightweight showboat who got a free ride from an often misogynist press and from naïve young people who lap up messianic language as if it were Jim Jones’s Kool-Aid. Or as Mrs. Clinton frames it, Senator Obama is all about empty words while she is all about action and hard work.- The Carpetbagger Report: Armstrong Williams is full of it.
But it’s the Clinton strategists, not the Obama voters, who drank the Kool-Aid. The Obama campaign is not a vaporous cult; it’s a lean and mean political machine that gets the job done. The Clinton camp has been the slacker in this race, more words than action, and its candidate’s message, for all its purported high-mindedness, was and is self-immolating.
- Talking Points Memo: Republican Rep. Jack Kingston is a shameless hack.
- Crooks & Liars: Frank Luntz of Fox News has sexual issues he needs to work out away from the cameras. Seriously, get some help.
- Windy City Gridiron: Chicago Bears and Rex Grossman continue their love affair. Sigh.
