Election ’02 Flash Hypocrisy


The thing that bugged me about the Mondale election rally/Wellstone memorial service wasn’t the event itself–nothing wrong with an Irish wake–but its contrast to the tone of the days leading up to it. Daschle et al were being such sanctimonious wieners about keeping politics out of the whole thing, attacking the most-innocent statements from Coleman’s camp with high dudgeon, keeping high ranking Republican’s at arms length, generally behaving boorishly–then capped it with the Mondale good-time revival. Now the apologies? Please. Everyone in America should be plain disgusted.
