Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Press Is Pissed

Josh Marshall is somewhat surprised that the press is not only pointing out that Romney's welfare ads are lies, but that they are playing the race card.

When you've lost Ron Fournier, you've lost the mushy middle.

The thing is, the press may hate Romney more than they hated Al Gore.

And they really hated Al Gore.

So, Gore suffered from the fact that - while many in the press agree with his political principles - they just didn't like the man.  Romney is personally unpopular and his policies are bat-shit insane.  Oh, and now he's playing the race card, because... screw it, what else is there.

Romney lost the Media Primary a long time ago.  Tough to make a comeback when your policies are unpopular and people think you're a dick.
