HUGH HEWITT: KOOL AID DRINKER OR SAGE OF SAGES?

Several people tell me they won't even go out to vote against Hillary. That is deep, deep disaffection with the BushGOP.

Hugh is a fine fellow, but I would bet with him this time. This election is the Dem's to lose and lose it they could. But the BushGOP is not going to win any elections now. They will only get there by Democratic Party outrages. Maybe Patrick Kennedy and his father can stir up enough one of those outrages, but I doubt the mainstream media will hammer that enought to make a difference.

A DEAD WRONG HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF 9/11

Joe Ellis is an engaging writer, a partisan political hack and an historian of marginal abilities.
Nonetheless, he will be quoted repeatedly from this New York Times essay and his detractors will trot out the series of lies of Ellis that stirred up about 4-5 years ago. In a few words, Joe Ellis destroyed his own credibility years ago.
The notion that a large number of jihadis are planning to destroy the country and their use of terrorist tactics make us vulnerable places 9/11 as high or higher on the list than the Cold War. And to answer mklutra both here and in his other posts on this, NO, we in the USA did not consider the Russians (or Soviets, if you prefer) as the same kind of mad men that the jihadis claim to be. So the Cold War was no more frightening than this new threat.
