The recent Wall Street Journal piece gets many key facts about the approval of recovery projects wrong and ignores the work that has helped improve the lives of thousands of people across Haiti.
In truth, it doesn't really matter for Brown which Republican he wallops in November. He will win a record fourth term as California's governor in a landslide, his third in four gubernatorial runs. What difference does it make how much he wins by?
Karl Rove successfully manipulated the entire news media this week. Rove's specialty is to take what could be considered a reasonable idea, and then twist it beyond recognition while dragging it through the swampiest mud he can dream up.
