For those of you whose nails, like mine, are chewed to the nub and who aren’t sure how you’re going to get through to Tuesday night, here’s an encouraging sign.
Glenn Reynolds, who six weeks ago claimed that Kerry had virtually conceded the election and had “shifted to a rally-the-base mode intended to protect downticket candidates,” is now preparing advance alibis in case Beloved Leader gets booted.
No surprise about the alibi: it will have been the fault of the “open partisanship of media organizations,” which I guess doesn’t include the eminently fair Fox, Murdoch, Clear Channel, or Sinclair. (Has anyone but me noticed that none of the mainstream media, in its analysis of the impact of the bin Laden tape, has mentioned Bush’s double flip-flop and lie about ObL [wanted dead or alive/don’t much care where he is/never said I didn’t much care where he was/wanted dead or alive]? If that’s “open partisanship,” let’s have some objectivity.)
Still, I’d rather hear Glenn whining, even prophylactically, than crowing.
