Two Subjects The Democrats Don't Want to Talk About
The first is Michael Moore, who has been everywhere at the Boston convention. No, he's not just a jolly prankster, they take him seriously, and no leading Democrat-- not one, least of all the two men at the top of the ticket-- have disavowed anything Moore has said. He's their guy, it seems.
With that in mind, go here, where Hugh Hewitt has posted a transcript of Moore's speech to a Democrat group at the convention Wednesday. Remember, 95% of the delegates there oppose the war completely, although the party platform does not express their view. At the end of the day, I think Moore really hurts Kerry in many subtle and not-so-subtle ways.
The second subject to be avoided is Kerry's record. We hear about his Vietnam service ad nauseum, but nothing about his record as a public servant over the last 30 years or so. Rudy Giuliani highlighted this today very sharply (and, I think, masterfully), as reported in this MSNBC story.
This is going to be one interesting campaign to watch.
