Mickey Kaus has an on-air conniption fit: "Spirit-crushing foolishness from my candidate, John Kerry. The nation is trying to figure out how to fight global terrorism and he's talking about having 'not just a Department of Health and Human Services, but a Department of Wellness.' How about a Department of F***ing Perspective? If Bush is smart he'll be ridiculing Kerry about this for the rest of the month. ...Thanks, Iowa!"
[You mean "conniption fit" in the best possible way, don't you?--ed Of course! One of the Iron Laws of Politics is that you should almost always dislike the candidate you're voting for more than you dislike the other guy.]
