OF HOWARD DEAN, Orrin Judd writes, “Here’s a guy who was on top of the world last Friday, having won the endorsement of his Party’s fallen martyr. Today he has the dean of Iowa journalism asking if his candidacy is viable…”
UPDATE: Charles Johnson adds:
Remember, this is the same Howard Dean (unless he has an equally evil twin) who, a week ago, was using the Bush administration’s “failure to catch Saddam or bin Laden” to score political points from the incredibly addled Deaniacs. Suddenly, he’s trying to argue that capturing Saddam is no big deal. In all the years I’ve been following politics I don’t believe I have ever seen a more blatant case of the old switcheroo.
And Andrew Sullivan fisks the recent speeches by Dean, and Hillary, to boot.
