A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

New republican slogan: Bin Laden or Bust!

Short of an Osama-sized October surprise, I can't imagine the American public being stupid enough to elect bush on Nov 2.

I'm not going to bother with post-debate analysis. There's a bunch of good stuff all over the internet - Kos, Atrios, Drum, Josh Marshall, and the rest. Have fun.

However - ENOUGH OF MT ST HELENS COVERAGE!!! It's a complete non-event - a little bit of steam - sheesh. It seems pretty clear that the only reason to cover it so obsessively was because of the news networks' failed morning attempts to spin the Kerry victory as something else. Because that failed, they went to Plan B - show something else, no matter how trivial, and make it out to be the most important thing in the world.

I really don't know why the media has been SO anti-Democrat for the last decade. I really don't.
