My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


A Slam From An Unusual Source

The Washington Post wrote an unusual editorial today refuting many of John Kerry's claims about jobs and outsourcing. While still taking an opportunity to criticize the President, it delivered this body blow to the Senator from Mass:

Mr. Kerry has clearly decided that voters want him to feel their pain, and he's willing to deliver what his audience expects from him. . . Fixing it will require a style of leadership that faces tough choices -- which is not what Mr. Kerry is providing.

In the interest of full disclosure, I did leave out the gratuitous shot at the President, which adds somewhat to the shot at Kerry. Nonetheless, for the WaPo to decide to shoot down one of their candidate's top platform points is remarkable, and indicative of the trouble Kerry may be waddled into.

UPDATE: the Wall Street Journal does an even better job of tearing apart the argument.
