What's Mallard raving about today?
Walter Williams, Howard Dean, waffling, Iowa.
Even if I were to grant that syndicated columnists were prevented from waffling by their paper trail (a claim which I do not grant), based on the fact that Mr. Williams directly compared environmentalists to mass-murdering communists, I would think that being waffling-challenged was the least of the problems his column presents.
Painting himself as a fringe element is probably more to the point.
Sadly for Mallard, the fringe is no longer in control here in America. In fact, I think what we're seeing over the last 2 weeks is actually a delayed reaction to the Midterm elections. It is the frenzied release of months of pent-up frustration over suddenly finding himself marginalized politically.
And yet, the idiocy of all that is actually overshadowed by the tired scream reference and applying the "waffler" sobriquet to Dean when it was actually used to tar Kerry.
You've got to hand it to the duck; just when you think he can't go any lower or get any stupider, he finds that extra gear.
