At Least He Has the Right Enemies

Gerard Baker makes what might be the best case for Bush: He has the right enemies.

Very true. The converse is also true: The best reason not to vote for Kerry is the people who are championing him.

That's clearly a matter of perspective. Sure, Kim Jong Il is a prominent exception (unless you are a member of his cult of personality in N. Korea), but he is also quite a looney and his opinion is irrelevant.

But as for the bad guys in favor of a candidate, I consider it very severe strike against bush that Karl Rove and Dick Cheney want him to win. Vladimir Putin isn't someone I go to for advice either. Perhaps he hopes that GW's treatment of the press somehow makes his own relation to the russian press seem more acceptable.

I'm sure we can all come up with a list of the top 10, 25, or 100 most despicable supporters of the "other" candidate just as easily as we could make a list of the most despicable supporters of our own candidates. Taking heed of such a list is, frankly, totally useless.

We have Michael Moore, you have Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson and Sun Myung Moon.

But yeah, like I said, you can't judge someone by the villains who like him or her.
