Unhinged with no mitigating circumstances

Daniel McKivergan in the Weekly Standard argues that John Kerry is becoming the new Al Gore. Actually, that claim may be unfair to Gore. To be sure, the latest Kerry’s latest anti-Bush tirade cited by McKivergan is Gore-like. But the former vice president had an excuse for becoming unhinged — unlike Kerry, he could reasonably believe that, at one or more levels, he had “won” the presidency. Moreover, Gore removed himself from consideration for the 2004 nomination even though one could have imagined him capturing it. Kerry remains interested in being nominated in 2008 even though it’s almost inconceivable that the Dems would select him.
