So we've got a theoretically neutral (I assume) historian, a (presumably) 'real' journalist, also theoretically 'neutral', and this guy:
David J. Frum (pronounced /?fr?m/; born June 30, 1960) is a Canadian American journalist active in both the United States and Canadian political arenas. A former economic speechwriter for President George W. Bush, he is also the author of the first "insider" book about the Bush presidency. His editorial columns have appeared in a variety of Canadian and American magazines and newspapers, including the National Post and The Week. He is also the founder of FrumForum.com (formerly NewMajority.com), a political group blog...
..On November 16, 2008, The New York Times reported that David Frum would be leaving National Review where he was a contributing editor and run an online blog. Frum announced to readers of his blog that he would be starting a new political website, NewMajority.com. He described it as "a group blog, featuring many different voices. Not all of them... conservatives or Republicans." He added that he hoped the site would "create an online community that will be exciting and appealing to younger readers, a generation often repelled by today's mainstream conservatism." The website was launched on January 19, 2009. David Frum's website changed to FrumForum.com on October 31, 2009.
Yay. Think I'll see what's up on the Food Channel.
Oh, but I got this friendly personal email earlier:
Polls are open in parts of the country as late as midnight Eastern Time -- and we urgently need more folks to call voters from home once the polls have closed in their area.
We're calling only to those voters in races we believe are coming down to the wire.
That means every call you make from now until midnight Eastern Time is even more crucial, even more focused, and even more likely to have a big impact.
Keep calling now:
So, y'know. Looks like it's Alaska at the moment...
update: actually, we got Katrina Vanden Heuvel instead of whatshername from Reuters.
