Same Old Corn

...different flakes. I'm assuming that the exclusion of Fred Thompson (who just got an endorsement from Human Events this morning) was deliberate.

I wonder how much the endorsement will help? I'm sure that it won't hurt, but (though I'm not a regular reader) I suspect that most people who read Human Events in South Carolina were probably going to vote for him anyway.

[Update late morning]

Here's an interesting analysis of why Thompson focused on Huckabee last night, and didn't go after McCain. Hint: it's not because he's trying to help McCain win the nomination.

Meanwhile, Matt Welch, incoming editor of Reason, is making up for lost time in dissecting Dr. No's past.

[Update mid afternoon]

It just occurs to me that we'll know whether or not Krumm's Thompson/McCain theory is valid after the Michigan primary. If he starts to go after McCain in addition to Huckabee after the primary, and before South Carolina, then it will all make sense.

I've never heard of Human Events until today... so I'm not excited if this was his big endorsement. He needs something bigger.

"Don't vote for this person, because he/she is a flake."

Yeah, that's the kind of irrefutable evidence and incisive logic that will help me pick who to vote for.

Yes, let us all take advice from a person afraid to post their name.

Sorry about that. I've gotten too accustomed to my browser filling in routine information on forms. Didn't notice I hadn't filled this one in, and surprisingly the comment system accepted it.

Well, now you have my name. Does knowing who I am improve my post any? That seems a bit too ad hominem for me, but to each his own.

Nope, adding your name didn't help; your first post does seem a bit ad homenim to me too.

Posted by Leland at January 11, 2008 03:38 PM

surprisingly the comment system accepted it.

FWIW, I don't know of any other blog where that can happen. It gets me every once in a while too.

"your first post does seem a bit ad homenim to me too."

Do you know what "ad hominem" means?
