Kerry has talked a good deal about energy policy. He's used the awkward line that we need to "go to the moon here on earth," or something like that, may times. The energy independence bit was perhaps the toughest attack on Bush in the convention acceptance speech (recall the reference to the Saudi royal family). And when gas prices have occasionally made headlines these last few months, Kerry has tried to capitalize, albeit without much succcess, as far as I can tell.

For whatever reason, energy policy didn't come up last night--take it up with Bob Schieffer. I liked that Kerry actually addressed the topics that he was asked about, rather than, say, talking about education policy when asked about job losses or affirmative action (as some other candidate on the stage did).

If the reams of internal polling data the campaign received on a daily basis revealed some hankering on the part of the public to hear more on energy, believe me, you'd hear Kerry bringing it up. There's really no avoiding that Iraq is the issue that is framing the election this year. What we really need is to convince these idiot security moms that Bush isn't the right choice. You're a mom, so maybe you know, what gives with these people?

1,000 pardons for my blogging delinquency of late, life is busy.

Boy, I wish I knew what would convince them that BushCo endangers their children. They don't seem to be able to put two and two together. I know that you're right about the polls, but that's why I'm ticked off at Kerry - he should have the imagination to see that the energy issue addresses every big issue in the polls except for healthcare.

So glad you're back blogging!

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
