"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
I was wrong, wrong, wrong Let it never be said that I can't admit when I'm wrong. I was remarkably, spectacularly wrong about the way the primaries would turn out.
And why was I so wrong? Because I had vastly overestimated the political savvy of Howard Dean. By waiting until Wisconsin to dig in his heels and fight like a mad dog (which he's really not doing very well at all), he's given Kerry enough time to establish himself as the undisputed champion. Had he shown Kerry vulnerable in Washington, which I think he was, Dean would have paved the way for Clark or (more probably) Edwards victories in Tennessee and Virginia today. As it was--nothing doing. Ah, well. I can't be right all the time.
