Can Blue Men Sing the Whites? 

NY Times headline sums it up pretty well, I think:
A Nation Is Scarred by 200 Years of Bad Government

...oh, sorry. That's Haiti they're talking about.

Well, speaking of bad government, Josh "Ivy" Marshall and A. "Pseudonymous" Trios both think Kerry should get off this economy thing and attack Bush on Defense, where he's also quite weak. Thing is, Bush is weak on every damn thing you can name, besides keeping the faggots down.

And while Bush is quite unforgivably incompetent on all matters of national defense, the modern Democratic Attack Method for all matters of defense is to Out-Hawk the Hawks, which would, in this case, screw Kerry over with all the ol'-fashioned Democrats. You know, the ones who vote.

But, if Kerry attacks Bush on defense from the Left, he'll be excoriated by the press. Being conscientious with military force is considered "soft."

So -- it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Might as well remember that people vote with their pocketbooks. If someone can't afford the rent, they're not going to be as interested in your missile defense system as in your plan for getting them a damn job and some social support until the job is available.
