Earning my punditry stripes
This past weekend, I wrote: “I have been saying for years that Terry McAuliffe is the greatest gift to the GOP. He moved up the timetable for the Democratic primaries and the party lunged at non-screamer John Kerry. Now the transparently inept Kerry campaign represents the Democratic Party as a whole and Americans are turning away. Thank heaven for Terry McAuliffe.”
Today, Dick Morris writes in “Kerry’s confused campaign”: “How did the Democrats end up in such a mess? Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe is to blame. It was he who decided to frontload the primaries to produce an early winner. Kerry got the nomination without any real audition. There was never a chance to road-test his candidacy or even to refine his message on a national stage.”
Advantage: Viking Pundit!
