Webb of Terror

Although you can't have missed it if you'd checked in with pretty much any blog out there today, I can't resist posting a link to Jim Webb's loudly praised rebuttal to the SOTU. Crooks and Liars conveniently provides video and a transcript. It's impressive stuff that had managed to prompt talk of a VP spot on the 2008 ticket by this morning.

In other news you already know, John Kerry has bowed out of the race. He wouldn't have been my first, second, or even third choice, but I think he's taken way too much of a beating from the left and the right since '06.

Update: I thought I should explain that last line a bit. Sure, Kerry bungled his campaign and made the same mistakes Gore did-- but that's the fault of the DLC and the Beltway fallacy that Dems have to move to the right to win office (Hillary will run her campaign the exact same way-- in fact, she already is). No, we just need to respond effectively to right-wing dirty tricks.
