"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.
Two predictions One of them is easily made, the other is less so. First off, Kerry wins the nomination easily. Despite the desperate wishing of Mickey Kaus, Edwards has no hope. Read the polls. Barring some sort of serious mental breakdown on Thursday, Kerry will win. And even if he does have one, he still could win.
My second prediction is this: come November, it will be similarly obvious that Bush is going to win, though the media will try mightily to make it sound like it's going to be a horserace. However, this effort will be undercut greatly by one Ralph Nader, who will point out to anyone who will listen (and everyone else while he's at it) that Kerry has no hope, so you may as well vote your conscience and vote Nader.
I will not, however, predict the success of this strategy.
