I forgot to mention one thing about the changeover to The Atlantic, namely that since this blog is now an MSM property it's going to be operating under what I like to think of as MSM rules. In particular, in the future I resolve that:

  • If a Democrat does something substantively meritorious but politically risky, I'll focus on the political risks.
  • If a Democrats does something substantively questionable, but politically beneficial, I'll slam him as an opportunist.
  • If a Democrat does something politically smart and substantively correct, I'll ignore it.

Just something to keep in mind.
