Advice Worth Taking

Not Buck offers some sound advice to both senatorial campaigns. There's also a bit of a reminder:

It doesn't matter how many times anyone says otherwise, Allen is not falling apart. Neither did "macaca" take him down any at all. We saw that from the Mason Dixon poll. Webb benefited from the blast of free publicity, coupled with a general "throw the bums out" attitude.

When a genuine, non-online poll comes out and shows Allen below 45 percent, then he's dropped. Until then, it's just so much background noise.

That's probably true. At least for this week.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
