Bill Kristol is apparently losing some ambition. Whereas in the past he would eagerly rewrite the McCain/Palin talking points, now he’s content to transcribe them directly from his phone calls with Palin.

Everyday people

Just plain folksy:

The McCains also own three 2000 NEV Gem electric vehicles, which are bubble-shaped cars popular in retirement communities.

Only the Cadillac is registered in the candidate’s name. Cindy McCain’s name is on 11 vehicles, though not the one she actually drives. That car, a Lexus, is registered to her family’s beer-distributor business and is outfitted with personalized plates that read MS BUD.

Two in twenty-four hours? I know, I know…

Shorter David Brooks: “Okay, I admit that the Palin pick was a cynical ploy of the most base and misleading kind, but that’s still no excuse for anyone else to say so.”

Shorter William Kristol

Go easy on me, because I don’t do this very often:

“Sarah Palin: Finally, a chick I’m happy to identify as a feminist."

Bonus insider-intellectual cheap poetry reductionism for quoting from “Prufrock.”

Double-bonus bizarro-world protesters-are-dirty moral equivalence from the comments!

The left burns bras, throws paint on fur coats, puts colored condoms on display at art shows, send Ward Churchill and Cindy Sheehan out, break windows, scream hate filled name calling.

The right does have it’s occasional Abotion clinic bomber as well. But the left seems to encourage their hateful side.
