Tim Who?

By on 1.31.06 | 9:50PM

The best way to grade Kaine's speech is the reaction it bestirs in the Dem-friendly media. They tuned out in less time than it took to run a commercial break. No follow-up, no instant stardom. Sorry, Tim. No national candidacy for you. You spoke for a while, and nobody heard you say anything worth remembering for the 11pm broadcast. I'm betting you get less than six column inches in the WaPo tomorrow.

What?! Somebody check Newt's pulse. He gives Governor Kaine "very high marks." Decent text. Atrocious delivery.

It's so sad to remember: Jerry Kilgore lost to this guy. Sigh...

A Marine view on Kane

By on 1.31.06 | 9:37PM

I am IM-ing with my Marine brother, who is not a political junkie, so is not familiar with Kaine. He asks: "Who is this churchboy? Their sop to the red states?" Maybe he doesn't need to follow politics any more than he does.

John: By process of elimination, you're not crazy. Kaine only won because he faced an awful campaign. Dems will rue this choice. It's good on paper, but the man's a goof.

Tim Looks Shifty

By on 1.31.06 | 9:35PM

John: He does resemble a Mr. Rogers gone bad. I've seen that smile before on some used car salesman. He keeps saying there's a better way. But he never says what it is. Or did I miss something?

Timmy’s Speech

Looks like a yawner. Nothing new here. Here's the text.

UPDATE: Kaine makes Bush look like a regular orator. Sheesh. And... of course, watch the eyebrow.
