AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 1/02/2005 08:24:00 PM ----- BODY: I Guess She Couldn't Type Fast Enough - Christine Todd Whitman, proving that timing is everything, turns in an anti-Bush book after the election. According to Drudge, she claims the president's 3-percentage point margin is the lowest of any re-elected president. I looked the book up on Amazon, and sure enough, there's Whitman and the book: "It's My Party, Too: Taking Back the Republican Party and Bringing the Country Together Again." Here's part of the blurb, with editorial comment:
Relentlessly pushing their ideological stances on abortion rights, race relations, the environment, tax policy, and go-it-alone foreign policy, (You know, all those hot-button issues that WON US THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION) the conservative extremists are not only violating traditional Republican principles, she argues, but are also holding the party back from achieving a true majority. (I guess 51 percent is a fake majority) By playing so slavishly to the far-right base, running negative campaigns and marginalizing women (Would those be the same women that Bush lost by only three percentage points? The gender gap disappeared this election, Ms. Whitman) , the party has forsaken the much broader base that propelled the "Reagan revolution" and has fueled the country's overheated polarization. (Um, no. The overheated polarization was fueled by irrational liberals who made anti-Bush movies, compared the president to Hitler and wrote anti-Bush books)
Or, how about this for a more succinct editorial comment?

Bush-hatred - the gift that keeps on giving. --------
