Subject:F*@#ing Xjournal.

Just blew away two long, detailed posts i was writing — one about why Dean didn't do well in Iowa (negative ads, lack of caucus experience, and reliance on an ASP), and one about my day today (acting class, interesting lead from San Mateo Community College, and reunions with Elves). All filled with links carefully collected over the last hour or two.

It crashed right while i was in the middle of typing a sentence!

From now on, i will compose entries ONLY in vi.

Subject:What happened in Iowa?

Most of the people reading this will probably already have heard me say most of these things, but i'll post them here just to get them down in writing and offer a place for discussing them.

Here's why Dean didn't do well in Iowa, in my opinion:

  1. Negative advertising.Collapse )

  2. Lack of caucus training.Collapse )

  3. Reliance on an application service provider.Collapse )

About Dean's speech.Collapse )

This thread over at the Daily Kos has a lot of great discussion on all the candidates. I think the future of the Dean campaign depends on a strong second-place finish in New Hampshire. Dean has surged very close to Kerry — within less than ten points in some polls — so there's hope yet.

If you haven't done it yet, demand that CBS air the Bush in 30 Seconds ad. View the ad. Sign the petition. Call CBS at 212-975-4321, then let MoveOn know you called.
