GOP: PARTY OF IDEAS
Lucianne Goldberg collects the finest, most substantial comments on Kerry's speech from an all-star team of thoughtful, Burkean conservatives:
"He is a deeply unlikable guy: arrogant, dull, pompous, mannered, self-righteous" Andrew Sullivan.
"Howard Dean with medals" - John Podhoretz
... pedestrian address, uninspiring, cliched, and humorless" - Jeff Jacoby
"Kerry, the sultan of Yada.... said absolutely zilch of substance" - Andrea Peyser
"The man has more facets than a disco ball" - Jonah Goldberg
"John Kerry once administered CPR to a hamster. This was one of the poignant vignettes we learned tonight from one of his daughters. Is there some gerbil-loving swing demographic out there we are trying to connect with?" - Barbara Comstock
"What did this man do as an adult? Kerry's biography ends at 24" - Dick Morris
"This isn't your father's JFK" - Jed Babbin
Look! Over there! Michael Moore! He's so hate-filled!
