AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 8/09/2004 09:22:00 AM ----- BODY: Just Be Honest - Thomas Sowell has some advice for John Kerry and John Edwards - just be yourselves. It really wasn't a good idea to stop by a Wendy's, then eat catered food from a country club. Not the way to attract the NASCAR crowd. In honor of those two, I had a mushroom melt from the big W the other day. Greasy and good, but that's another subject... Kerry is smart enough to know he can't be honest with what he is. Despite what Michael Moore thinks, this is not a country full of liberals. The Democrat party, usually a loose confederation of special interest groups, is unusually united, if only by their hatred of the president. Shared hatred, though, is no basis on which to build a majority. The Democrats are living in an echo chamber - just ask Pauline Kael how well that works. --------
