Pejman is one of the smartest people writing today. This morning he directs us to another site focusing on (yet another) slip of the tongue by Mr. Kerry. I have noticed over the years that politicians tend to say pretty near anything they think people want to hear if another vote might result. Every twitch of a table dance is dedicated to revenue, not eros. People tend to forget.

Robert Tagorda has an instructive post. Instructive because it tells us two things:
We learn that despite President Bush's occasional predilection for expanding government, Kerry can't move to Bush's right on this issue. A 'Department of Wellness'? How very . . . peculiar.
We also learn that the war in Iraq is part of the war on terror. Except . . . it isn't. Or maybe it is. Who knows anymore where John Kerry stands on security issues?

I think I am going to be able to vote for Nader after all. I'm not crazy about either of the major candidates, and as the campaign progresses it looks more and more like a Republican sweep. Votes for principled positions will get more attention as a large third place rather than a distant third.
