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


I Don't Often Cite Dick Morris. . .

because he's a smarmy, oh-too-slick political operative who seems to lack a soul.

But today he made a great point. In his NYPost column (courtesy RCP) he argues that Kerry's strategic decision to run on the war was a tactical error: never fight on another's battlefield.

The graf that brought it home for me:

Voters want a president with brains, not just guts, and all they saw was a warrior telling his old tales on Thursday night. And it wasn't enough. Picture the Springfield song "Glory Days" and one of those sad former jocks who you see at high school reunions talking about "the big game." That's what Kerry managed to do to himself last week.
