Follow on for lies
.........Name one policy proposal they advocate that is either supported by a majority of Americans or is likely to be in the near future. The Nation's version of the "good society" is one that most Americans no longer share, if they ever did. Yet it's inconceivable to them that their ideas no longer hold sway over a majority of this country, so they desperately invent reasons why they are losing. It's coup plotters. It's those corporate moguls. It's those damn maniacal wide-eyed true-believing Christians. If we could just defeat this vast right-wing conspiracy, then Americans would vote their true interests and the left-wing nirvana would be upon us.And from his Blog the statement about "bombshells":
The fact of the matter is that America is changing in ways that a far-left magazine can no longer stomach. It increasingly rejects government solutions, wants an aggressive foreign policy against terrorism, and admires individualism. President Bush's reelection will only accelerate these trends.
No wonder The Nation is on the verge of losing it.
For it to be a bombshell, it would have to be either, (1) a story showing that Kerry is lying about an issue position that has become synonymous with his campaign, or (2) Kerry on tape saying that America was to blame for the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
