What Taranto Says
He covers the flubbluster and John Kerry's pandering to the moonbats
:Somehow it doesn't seem right that Obama, the only African-American in the Senate, is being pressured into going along with a tactic that earlier generations of Democrats used to prevent the passage of civil rights laws.
Conveniently enough for Kerry, the cloture vote is perfectly timed to divert attention from today's first anniversary of his promise to release his military records. But what's really going on is that he is trying to establish his Angry Left bona fides in preparation for what he mistakenly thinks will be another presidential campaign in 2008. The Washington Post notes that the Democrats face "an intraparty rift that could complicate efforts to win back the White House: fiery liberals raising their voices on Web sites and in interest groups vs. elected officials trying to appeal to a much broader audience."
Exactly. As I have said before, there are three slots available for Democratic presidential contenders: The Hillary Slot (reserved), the Electable Slot (probably Mark Warner of Virginia), and the Moonbat Slot (Feingold had an early lead here, but Gore and Kerry are making moves to endear them to this crowd).
