Raising Kaine

Just when you think you're alone in the world, a leader says what you've been begging for.

I've been begging and pleading-- can't the Democrats just state point by point, what they'll do to make a difference in people's lives, in contrast to Republican policies? Instead of all this bickering about who's the most perfect liberal, or who's the most perfect opponent, can't somebody take a look at the Bush tenure and say, just like in a job interview, say, here's how I can help?

That's what Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine did tonight, in the Democratic Response to the State of the Union.

I'm not saying Democrats should shift right or left or anywhere. I'm saying, there's so much awry, get in there and detail what you'll do.

By the way, you'll never hear any of Karl Rove's minions call it the Democratic Response. They use "Democrat" as an adjective. I think it's one of those things, like "nucular" that they do for two reasons: to give their millionaires the "common touch"; and, more importantly, because it annoys the hell out of Democrats. Anyone up for calling the president's party "the Republic folks"?
