She Who Laughs Last

Great column by Frank Rich in today’s New York Times. While the headline - Why Liberals Are No Fun (registration required) - may be a little off-putting to some, he makes two key points - one is that rage is building among Democrats and two, that in politics, timing is everything. It’s a lesson I learned well while working on the Mondale-Ferraro and Dukakis-Bentsen campaigns. Just one criticism - I don’t think he answers his own headline. Believe me, I’m liberal and I think I’m loads of fun. Okay, maybe not loads but I’ve got a hell of a sense of humor. Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
