Hush Hush Keep It Down Now

An e-mail that just exudes confidence in the GOP field:

Didn’t you guys learn your lesson from the recent election? Dean was favored to win the nomination and then lost it, in part because loud mouths like yourselves pointed out what a failure he would be as a candidate. Granted, he shot himself in the foot numerous times, but only political junkies noticed most of the slip ups. Your ceaseless “begging” for his nomination doomed it, Kerry won and actually had us worried for a few weeks. SO just shut up about Dean’s chairing the DNC or the Dems might get wise and realize what a disaster he is (Though how they can mistake it is beyond me). Then they might actually put somebody competent in that post who will actually improve their chances in ‘06 or ‘08!!

How Immigration Changes Britain

Almost nothing is discussed as badly in America or Europe as the subject of immigration. And one reason is that it remains almost impossible to have any sensible or rational public discussion of its consequences. Or rather it is eminently possible to have a discussion about the upsides (“diversity,” talent, ... Read More
