Afternoon Musings-Mr. Claybourn, as are many college students, is in low-blog mode due to the end-of-semester cram-for-finals and crank-out-term-paper crunch. While you're writing those term papers, remember that your professor has to read them all, so don't accuse him of sadism. Sadomasochism, perhaps, but not sadism. Interesting new blog on my radar, the Daily Kos, a left-leaning political junkie. I haven't seen the guy for the long haul, but he seems to bring something to the table. He might be a blog equivalent to the New Republic, someone whose liberal but worth reading nonetheless. His proposal for a Political State Report seems promising, where he's hoping to get bloggers (from both sides of the aisle) from every state to give on-the-ground feedback on how politics is happening from a local perspective. The Lott thing seems to be dying down, he's taken the foot out of his mouth and given it a good rinse with a mouthwash. Gore is going over-the-top, overstating what Lott said; just when you thought he was doing a Ralph Nader imitation, he starts doing his Sharpton shtick. The usual suspects on the black left are following the standard script. However, Daschle is taking the high road, or is that the good cop creating the proper distance from the NAACP-and-company bad cop.
