I still love hearing Liddy describe the Watergate break-in, as well as the earlier "black bag job" done on Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office. He genuinely seems to think the whole thing was funny. Rent the Discovery Channel video on Watergate done in 1994 titled *A Third Rate Burglary*.

James Carville is funny, but sometimes he can go off the deep end. Ann Richards would probably appeal to the soccer mom base with her down-home goodness, but not much beyond that. Maher, maybe, but is he damaged goods after the ABC mess?

The problem with liberal talk radio, is that liberals are often easy targets. They get identified, rightly or not, with every crazy tree hugging, red-paint-on-mink-coat throwing, militant shoot-all-white-people minority cause. And it usually sticks. Their base is too broad and encompases too many crazies to appeal to the average American. Though I'd argue that people like John Ashcroft are no less radical than John Worldpeace, or Moonbeam, the spotted owl lover. But hard-core right wingers like him have done a good job of convincing people that they're more in line with the average American viewpoint.

Liberals are easy targets? Members of Congress attack Rush Limbaugh.

That's because they probably are. Conservatives tend to espouse the same traditional values and beliefs that mainstream Americans do. Now, you could argue that the "right-wingers" do go above and beyond this level of conservatism. But the American voters tend to side more with tax cuts, the military and law and order then they do big spending, higher taxes and the welfare state.

The average American thinks that calico cats are a sign of the devil? The average american would drape nude statues in cloth because they consider it somehow provocative?

I doubt it.

Fair enough, Grimmis. And it may be true that the average American is more conservative. But I'd argue that the current administration poses as moderate conservatives, when in reality they're something very different.

Or to paraphrase The Usual Suspects:

The greatest trick John Ashcroft ever pulled was convincing Congress that his whacked out views didn't exist.

I think they're more moderate than you give them credit for and more moderate than I'd like them to be. Rod Paige, for example, had the chance to reign in Title IX and chose not to. Plus, the deficits and the expanding bureaucracy lead me away from considering the administration being too conservative. Of course, it's better than the Al Gore alternative.

The only use I've wound up having for Ashcroft is the fact that he restored the traditional, intended view of the 2nd Amendment back to DoJ. I supported Aschroft's nomination at the time more as a big "F-you" to the Democrats moer than anything else...

...of course that was before 9-11.
