Kerry, The Victim. America, The Victimized.

How did Hillary Clinton get my e-mail address?!

From this morning’s Kerry campaign fundraising e-mail:

A year ago everyone had written Democrats off. The media had taken for granted the reelection of George Bush. Isn’t it fun to prove them wrong?

The Bush-Cheney campaign has blown $70 million on negative ads, but is still tied in the polls with John Kerry. Your work has sent a powerful message to George W. Bush and those who would reduce this campaign to a petty exchange of attack ads: we know what this election really means — and we won’t stop until we’ve won.

We need to make a “Miracle in May” happen and keep our momentum up. This ten million dollars is not just about money. It’s about showing the media, the Bush campaign, undecided voters, and the rest of the country, that the Kerry campaign is not a fluke and is going to win in November.

We all know the stakes in this election are incredibly high. If we win, we’ll have John Kerry in the White House leading America with the hope, optimism, and sense of common purpose that have always been at the center of America’s response to challenging times.

If they get their way, you and I will be living in an America governed not by our hopes, but by our fears. We’ll be living in an America where we see our freedoms diminished when they ought to be embraced, our rights restricted when they ought to be strengthened.

We’ll be living in an America that shrinks away from the political and economic challenges of the 21st century, rather than rising to those challenges and working together to meet them.

Don’t let Republicans create an America we won’t recognize.

The Kerry Spot has a warning about such claims.

Basta La Vista, Baby

Dear Reader (And especially Martha McSally’s dog), As I often note, I increasingly tend to see the political scene as a scripted reality show in which the writers don’t flesh out the dialogue so much as move characters into weird, wacky, confrontational, or embarrassing positions. It’s a lot like The ... Read More

Betsy DeVos Strikes a Blow for the Constitution

The Department of Education has issued its long-awaited proposed regulations reforming sexual-assault adjudications on college campus. Not only will these rules restore basic due process and fairness to college tribunals, but they also — given how basic the changes are — highlight just how ridiculous ... Read More

ABC News Makes a Serious Mistake

Today, across Twitter, I began to see a number of people condemning the Trump administration (and Betsy DeVos, specifically) for imposing a new definition of sexual assault on campus so strict that it would force women to prove that they were so harassed that they'd been chased off campus and couldn't return. ...
