I agree with Noam Scheiber on what's rotten in St. Paul:
If you learned nothing else from 2004, you learned that Kerry was a flip-flopper--that he was before the $87 billion before he was against it--and that he was generally too wimpy to stand up to terrorists.Also, what happened to that whole idea of the hurricane "curtailing" the parties and celebrations aspects, and that people wouldn't even be wearing funny hats? So much for that idea. Posted by Stephen Silver at September 3, 2008 10:34 PM
So far this week, I've heard that Obama puts himself first rather than his country, that he's inexperienced, that he has no executive experience, that he's a whacked out liberal, that he's a celebrity, that he's unpatriotic, a defeatist, a flip-flopper, a moral relativist. Tonight, for the first time (care of Rudy Giuliani), I heard that he spent time in an apparently shameful profession called "community organizing." And that he voted "present" over 100 times in the Illinois state Senate. I haven't really heard the same critique more than twice, though. I have a hard time seeing how any one of them sticks, at least as a result of the convention.
