Matt Labash's incisive piece on the Shadow Convention was just about
what one would expect from a jerk who left "bad weed and jug wine"
behind in his college dorm.  All those angry people upset because
Vanilla Gore and Vanilla-Lite Bush don't seem to want to discuss
anything but "Why Johnny Can Read in Dallas" and the most
compassionate way of putting retarded folk down in the Lone Star
State.  Guess I see the point: Why should anyone as supercilious as
Labash want the two major political parties to discuss anything of
substance?  He might have to familiarize himself with actual issues
instead of strolling around making derisive yet delightfully wry comments.
