The Most Subtle President Since Cal Coolidge
Is that Flag Warm When You Wrap Yourself In It?

My initial reaction to these well-produced Bush campaign ads is, "What? Bush was President during 9/11? How come he never brings that up? You know, he really should mention it from time to time. You know, just to remind us."

Some days, I just wake up astonished that half the American electorate falls for this stuff. I agree with The Independent that:

If the human race as a whole, rather than 50 states plus the District of Colombia, could cast a ballot this coming November, John Kerry would surely win the presidency by a landslide.

We'll just have to see if roughly one half of the American electorate wakes up to this reality before November.
