Vote early. Let's nip this in the bud.

The best reason for voting early is probably to bring an end to this kind of squabbling. Lynne Cheney went on Wolf Blitzer's program to promote a new children's book about American, but got ambushed when Blitzer asked her about Dick's alleged waterboarding remark. She was ready and let him have it, then reminded him that she was there to talk about the book not campaign issues. Somehow, she got drug into the Allen-Webb kefuffle over explicit sex in Webb's novels. Basically it confirmed my assessment of Allen's leadership potential and the absolute childishness of the media, who have been pouncing on things he might have uttered 20 or 25 years ago, and the absurd claim that Macaca was meant as a racial slur. I like Webb, but I don't understand why he became a Democrat. America has ceased to be a place to be proud of, but then so has almoste everywhere else. If I'd been Webb, I'd have said, "Oh, grow up!"
