Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

Dick Gephardt may not want to take batting practice (see below), but Howard Dean is definitely using his. The Dean bat, which yesterday was at $1.7 M out of a target of $5 M, is now at $12.5 M out of $15 M. This seems to claim that Dean has raised almost $11 M in less than one day, which is hardly believable. Joe Trippi confirms my suspicion that the campaign has switched form the bat count to showing all contributions for the quarter. By shifting to the quarter totals, which really are impressive, the Deaniacs hope to draw attention away from the fact that they are falling well below the $5 M in 10 days goal that was set for the Dean bat in this inning.
