The Reason that Dare Not Speak Its Name

And the #1 reason to hope Kerry does, in fact, become the Democratic nominee:
To ensure that Mickey continues in his current agitatedly inspired state of frustrated indignation. You can just picture him gnawing on a pencil somewhere everytime Kerry takes a state or morbidly intones “Bring…it…on!” — or worse, does both simultaneously.
I lack faith that Kaus could sustain the kind of gleefully meanspirited commentary he’s treated us to for the last few weeks were Edwards to somehow end up with the nomination. Because Edwards is, you know, nice.
Unless, of course, we could convince Edwards to simultaneously attack welfare reform and declare his love for the Chrysler 300’s tail lights… it’s a valid Plan B to fall back on, I suppose…
