Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Mara "Nice Polite Republican" Liasson just wrapped up a report on All Things Considered with her usual partisan aplomb. It was a pre-election look back at the campaign with highlights and lowlights called "Key Moments in the 2004 Campaign." She stated that Kerry's focus on Vietnam left him open for attack and then played about 30 seconds of Swift Boat Vets for Bush clips. She said the Swiftees dampened any post-convention bouce Kerry might have had and never once mentioned the fact that the SBV was associated with prominent Republicans or that, more importantly, that the charges they leveled against Kerry had been completely discredited!

The audio isn't up yet, but check back here later this evening and give a listen. (Update: It's there as of 6:00 p.m.)

*sigh* I guess it's time to write another letter to my old buddy Jeff.
