In the tank for Barry

I grew tired years ago of the NYT’s favored political narrative. So I wasn’t surprised when they ignored the Swift Boat veterans in 2004 to help keep John Kerry’s effete head above water. Followed of course by the rest of the old media sheep, which like to run the day’s political narrative from the NYT on their front pages. Until Kerry sank out of sight on election day. Now they’re doing the same for Barry. Not that it will help, I don’t think. I’m still with VHD on the subject: Barry will be the McGovern of 2008, losing even his home state of Illinois. Not a popular prediction, I know. But if you allowed yourself to live within the old media’s bubble in mid-2004, the idea of Kerry losing also seemed preposterous.

UPDATE: "Calvinball" begins. Newsweek signs up for Barry by issuing the "rules" of campaigning. As if.
