The Washington Monthly goes Daily...

Well, Congratulations to Kevin Drum whose journal has now become the main daily content of The Washington Monthly's magazine website. Of course, it means that it will be harder to find the actual magazine content of the Monthly. I really hope this isn't the start of the devaluing of longer form more in-depth articles for more instant commentary and rebuttals.

That said, I did manage to find...well, I don't know if I mentioned this before, but I think Bush is less concerned about solving problems than saying he is solving problems. I may have said before, and I may have linked to people who say likewise, that perhaps solutions are secondary to the looking like he was solving the problem. Image is everything. From the movie set, Bruce Reed (an old advisor to Bill Clinton, or course) says everything is done just to goose the poll numbers. Even the bit about not reading the polls.
