The Corner


Small point: but it’s interesting, to me, nonetheless: the Democrats have nominated four people in the last two presidential campaigns: Al Gore, Joe Lieberman, John Kerry and John “Shiny Pony” Edwards. These men were supposed to represent Democratic values more than any others. So far, fifty-percent of them have been defenestrated by their own party. Lieberman was attacked by the base of the Democratic Party to the extent that he lost the nomination of his own party. His offense? He behaved like exactly the same man he was in 2000 and for his entire career, i.e. his sin was for being Joe Lieberman. And now John Kerry was roundly disaparaged by many of the leaders of his own party for…being John Kerry.

I’m not exactly sure what this says, but I think it says something.
