"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.
Kerry is toast Yes, yes, the polls look bad for Bush. But Bush hasn't even started campaigning yet, while Kerry's been stumping for months. I realized today that Kerry is such a flawed candidate that I could eviscerate him without much effort at all.
Of course, the response from the Democrats is, "Yeah, that's what we thought about George W. Bush. Don't get too cocky."
And my response is, "You also thought that about Reagan. That proves nothing except that you're generally wrong. On the other hand, we Republicans thought that Dukakis and Mondale would be relatively flaky candidates, along the lines of John Kerry. Guess what? We were right." And we are now.
