I'm just ready to nod off for the night when this thought hit me, so fire back at will. I'm really tired and vulnerable.
If Fox News, the right wing talk machine and the rest of the wingnut press really wanted to do the bidding of Karl Rove's public wish for Dean to be the guy to run against Bush - why did they pull out all the stops to bury him? The easy answer is that they really did not want Dean to be the guy - but now the polls show that Kerry would handily beat Bush today.
Anyway, it seems like they're so horny to attack that they'll fire wildly at anyone at this point. Step cautiously, fellow Dems. Let them step on their own landmines. They're doing a great job of that so far...
