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.

That's Tucker With a Capital "F"
More brilliant insight from Tucker Carlson:
Mr. CARLSON: Of course! What--I think what people--the--the--the key group in this primary election is going to be the left. People who are angry, not simply at George W. Bush, but because they were told to shut up for eight years under Bill Clinton. For--free-trade was forced down their throats, NAFTA was. There are a lot of people--you saw them in Seattle a couple of years ago bombing McDonald's. You saw them, two year--three years ago voting for Ralph Nader. They're the people who are voting for Howard Dean. They're going to make the difference.
Tucker has brilliantly identified the critical demographic for Democratic primaries: people who bomb restaurants. True, there are some controversies within the party: the 'Bush Lite' types who prefer to bomb empty buildings vs the real Democrats who go for suicide bombings during peak hours, but bombing restaurants, along with voting for candidates who attack our party, remain the key values which unite all Democrats. There's nothing - except of course George Bush, apple pie, and the American flag - that we hate more than candidates who waste our time talking about nonsense like jobs, health care, Social Security, environmental protection, and sane foreign policy.
