Evening Musings-Signs of a married life-having to pick the bras out of the wash before putting the clothes into the dryer. Rich Galen's got a good but flawed analysis here
The crack team of Mondale & Ferraro successfully LOST 49 states to the ticket which the mainstream media pretty much believed were uniquely unqualified to run the country, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. In fact, because Mondale lost every state BUT Minnesota against Reagan in 1984, then lost the Senate race IN Minnesota to Norm Coleman last month, he holds the unbreakable record of being the only person in the history of the Republic to have lost elections in all 50 states.
It's only unbreakable if we stay at 50 states. The future additions of Puerto Rico or Alberta or B.C. might make losing 51 or 53 states possible. However, Galen's theme of the day of a conservative "fifth column" in the mainstream media is a good for a chuckle (at the Democrats who are pushing the idea, not at Galen) when the mainstream media's about 90% Democratic. If the handful of conservatives there are a fifth column out to get them, what do you call the liberal rank-and-file of the media? The Mongolian Hoards?
