TGIF Election Reads
Sean Wilentz: "Disputations: The '3 A.M.' Fight Continues"
On Geraldine Ferraro:
- Alex Koppelman (Salon.com): "Reexamining the Ferraro Fracas"
- Bob Somerby: "This Is Your Party On Rectitude! And this is how Rove Wins Elections"
- Taylor Marsh: "Ferraro Revisited"
- Dhonig at MyDD: "Keith Olbermann, Hypocrite" (Sorry Dhonig, but don't you know Keith Olbermann is, um, Edward R. Murrow?)
On Jeremiah Wright (don't worry, I don't happen to believe that Sen. Obama believes the kind of nasty stuff his preacher has been busy sermonizing about, but Clinton Derangement Syndrome is evident even on this - especially obvious after you read Sean Wilentz)
My opinion of Maureen Dowd should be no secret to anyone, but I found this fascinating:
These reporters say that Obama is unusually solicitous of Times columnist Maureen Dowd when she materializes on the campaign trail. They recall how he recently sidled up to her on the plane and remarked on her snazzy pair of boots.
