stuff in the paper

Karl Rove rallied the troops yesterday at the winter meeting of the RNC. I guess he's figured out that challenging the patriotism of those who oppose the current administration's policies just isn't going to fly anymore. But the September 11 theme goes on and on and on.

"At the core, we are dealing with two parties that have fundamentally different views on national security. Republicans have a post-9/11 worldview and many Democrats have a pre-9/11 worldview. That doesn't make them unpatriotic - not at all. But it does make them wrong - deeply and profoundly and consistently wrong."

I love the story about the Family Pride Coalition's plans to have gay and lesbian families bring their kids to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll because it's really a tremendously smart political and PR strategy. So smart. Conservatives are accusing the group of using the egg roll for political purposes - and they are. They're not going to rally, they're not going to have a sit in. But they are going to bring their children out to have some fun and play with other kids. The First Lady's press secretary says that the White House has no problem with the plan for gay and lesbian families to participate, "All families are welcome to attend."
