"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Thursday, April 29, 2004


I must say, Slate's PowerPoint series is the best thing they've come up with in . . . well, ever. Even for a publication that employs both Hitchens and Kaus, that's saying something.

This time around, it's John Kerry's military records.

Slide 5 is just about the goofiest thing I've ever seen. Also note the little joke in the corner of slide 2.

There's plenty for both sides of the aisle to laugh about. Besides, the entire Presidential election is about spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to convince 4 percent of the voting population to vote either one way or the other. Something tells me that a very, very small proportion of those 4 percent read Slate. So let's all pretend we're seasoned inside-the-Beltway correspondent stuck-ups, and have a good laugh together.
