Dear Ol' Arlen...

I just wanted to point something out. Most of the criticsm leveled
against Dear Ol' Arlen tries to paint him as an opportunist who is
only bowing to an inevitable loss in GOP primary race. This may well
be. However, no one has yet claimed he would loose the general
election too. Hmmm...what does that tell you? Is he saving his own
skin or falling in line with his constituents? Both, more than likely.
Yet even if he is trying to salvage his career he is principled for
doing so. After all, why should a 29 year career be left to ruin
because his party has been reduced to a fanatical minority? If the GOP
wants to speak only to it's base it has to be prepared to loose it's
moderates. Thankfully, that seems to include most of Pennsylvania's
voters.

Poll: Dems trail Obama in popularity, still top GOP

I guess this falls into the "am I supposed to be surprised" column.

Here's a Thought

Reading a nation's constitution can give you a good sense of a
country's political psychology at the time it was written. The French
Constitution of 1958 has at least three provisions dealing with the
death of a presidential candidate. That tells me they either had an
irrational fear of assassination or an election process that was
really bad for you. Do candidates get shot at that much in France? It
hasn't happened that often on the US & we're nut-jobs! I suppose it's
easy underestimate how terrifying the Russians can be. After all, they
beat the Germans by flinging their own soldiers at them in catapults.
Well, not literally. I think I've had too much coffee.
