FULL SERVICES RETURN TOMORROW: Today, were off on a mission of national import. Tomorrow, though, well draw our text from this op-ed column by E. J. Dionne. It's over, E. J. writes. American voters, in their wisdom, ended an era on Tuesday. Dionne goes on to flesh out his statement: They rejected a poorly conceived war policy in Iraq that has weakened the United States.
We agree with the thrust of Dionnes piece. But if we take a longer view, then sorry—we dont think an era is over. Has the Freak Show era ended, for example? Tomorrow, an incomparable discussion—complete with Bill OReillys recent discussions of a certain gentleladys San Francisco values.
Meanwhile, in this mornings Post, the latest news on the Election Day work of that inspiring Maryland Senate hopeful, Michael Steele. (This news report understates some key facts.) Tomorrow, well have more thoughts on this story as well. On Sunday, of course, the nicely-scripted Mara Liasson was giving Steele her top award (see THE DAILY HOWLER, 11/8/06). Mara stood to tell the world how talented this wonderful fellow had been.
Yep! Mara was eager to let the world know how talented Michael Steele had been. But then, OReilly has also been talented lately—and Mara and her vacuous gang dont plan to notice that matter either. Is it true? Has an era ended? Tomorrow, well voice our doubts—and offer an incomparable challenge.
