Alexander Cockburn has a fine article in Counterpunch (Swatting at Flies, Sep 11-12, 2004) on why Kerry is losing to Bush. Could be called a chronicle of the collected idiocies of the Kerry campaign.
A Newsweek poll says the race has tightened, and so has Kerry's message. He finally spoke out against Black disenfranchisement, but only at a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus (guided no doubt, by an appropriate focus group). Where is Edwards, by the way? We don't see him on the news at all.
