Can Hackett Hack It?
Ohio? Anyone? What kind of bellwether election can it be if no one's leaking exit polls? We've been following some of the Right's coverage of the race between Paul Hackett (handsome Iraq War vet Democrat) versus Jean Schmidt (sort of scary marathon-running lady Republican). Rush Limbaugh in particular has said that Dems pinning their hopes on this race just shows they don't learn from their mistakes: You know, like from the last time they ran a veteran critical of the unpopular war he was in. So, really, the best part about Hackett winning in Ohio would be proving it really was John Kerry's fault that John Kerry lost.
