Interesting thoughts as I go through my day.

In reflecting on Arnold’s speech last night, I’m taken by his reference to how he became a Republican… He referred to the 68 Campaign.. in which Humphrey and Nixon engaged. He had just escaped from Socialism, recall. Nixon at the time, he said, sounded like a breath of fresh air, and Humphrey sounded like a Socailist.

Two striking thoughts occur:

First, that the redemption of Richard Nixon is now completed, apparently.

Second, and perhaps of greater import to this seasons’s events, Humphrey was far to the right of 90% of today’s Democrat party leadership… and certainly to the right of the Democratic Party nominee… John F’ing Kerry.
