Dan Conley (a former speechwriter for former Virgina Gov. L. Douglas
Wilder) has closed down his critical
Dean Blog (motto: "Some positive, some negative,
some completely off-the-wall comments that have nothing to do with Howard
Dean"), because he feels Dean's nomination is "both inevitable and
depressing" because Dean will lose to Bush. Over at his new site
Dan Conley's Journal, Dan provides
more a detailed analysis
(link broken at
the moment) of why he feels that way. This is even more
critical of Dean -- Dan doesn't even think Dean would make a good
president. He closes with "Dean needs to be defeated, for the good of the
party and the country".
Obviously, I disagree with Dan Conley about that, but I will miss his
unique take on the Dean phenomenon. Fortunately, he'll still be providing
commentary about a wider range of issues at his new site.
