After dark

Bush aides to tutor Palin. That's the funniest headline I've seen in years.


Foreign Policy 101

Talk to no one.

I don't think that Senator McCain doesn't care what's going on in the lives of Americans, I just think he doesn't know.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Economic Policy 101

War is good business.


Jesus Swept, so you can come clean.

James, it's so much better than that...

Tucker Eskew, another senior Bush White House communications aide, is serving as senior counselor to Palin’s operation.

Tucker Eskew's name may not ring a bell (and the article refers to him simply as another senior Bush White House communications aide). Tucker, it seems, was the architect of Bush's 2000 strategy to smear McCain in South Carolina. (This would include the push-polling on the Keating 5 and the rumors that McCain's adopted Bangladeshi daughter was really his illegitimate black baby, among others.)

That's how far McCain has drifted from his 2000 maverick status. He now borrows Bush's attack team to guide his campaign and educate his VP choice.
