This right here is why Mike Huckabee might actually win the election.

Because today's Doonesbury pretty much sums up all of my thoughts on the Larry Craig issue.

Mitt Romney, at the Republican Presidential debate last night:
I am glad [detainees] are at Guantanamo. I don’t want them on our soil. I want them on Guantanamo, where they don’t get the access to lawyers they get when they’re on our soil. I don’t want them in our prisons, I want them there. Some people have said we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is we ought to double Guantanamo.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen.  This Presidential candidate does not believe in habeas corpus for suspected terrorists.  So watch what you say, lest he pick you to be one of the folks in the new, doubled Guantanamo.  He thinks it's a GREAT THING that you won't get a lawyer.  (Transcript of the quote swiped from Think Progress.)

Video of the question & responses from McCain, Giuliani, and Romney (streaming quicktime) is here, compliments of Crooks and Liars.

Special comment: Condi goes too far

Olbermann: Secretary Riceâ™s comparison of Saddam to Hitler is not accurate

If Congress were now to revise the Iraq authorization, she said, out loud, with an adult present: "⦠it would be like saying that after Adolf Hitler was overthrown, we needed to change, then, the resolution that allowed the United States to do that, so that we could deal with creating a stable environment in Europe after he was overthrown."

clipped from www.msnbc.msn.com

There is, obviously, no mistaking Saddam Hussein for a human being. But nor is there any mistaking him for Adolf Hitler.

Invoking the German dictator who subjugated Europe; who tried to exterminate the Jews; who sought to overtake the world is not just in the poorest of taste, but in its hyperbole, it insults not merely the victims of the Third Reich, but those in this country who fought it and defeated it.

the democratic candidates will all eat each other for lunch sometime relatively soon, at which point Al Gore will swoop in with Oscar in his back pocket and become the Democratic nominee.

Joe Biden!

No, not really.  Vilsack's out.  Kind of a shame; from what I'd heard of him (and I'm expressly not paying attention at this point, because I'm not going to have to actually cast a vote in this election for roughly a year), he made some degree of sense.

"no strings!  no strings!  no strings!"

Now that Halloween is over, it's time to think about who to vote for next week. For the most part, it's going to be a no-brainer for me, but there's one race (for State Comptroller) where there doesn't seem to be ANY good choice... [Poll #857956][Poll #857956]

No, people, we do not need MORE people running for President. While Clark may be a perfectly reasonable candidate (and I see no reason to think that he's not more reasonable than, say, Sharpton), TEN IS TOO MANY!
NY Times article on Clark and Edwards )
DNC, go yell at them. I fear that if the Democratic party gets too fractured (and, more to the point, the fundraising pool gets so diluted), even the best of candidates will not be able to counter the advantages that Bush has - ie, the advantage of being the incumbent and the advantage of being a stinking rich bastard with the financial support of other stinking rich bastards.
