Here is the New York

Here is the New York Times’ take on the neck-and-neck Senatorial race between Norm Coleman and Paul Wellstone. The Times is right that the race is being dominated, at least for now, by Iraq. And although the Times would never put it this way, their report is also consistent with my theory, articulated here a day or two ago, that Wellstone calculates that his opposition to the Iraq resolution may represent his best hope for re-election. I also enjoyed the article’s description of Gordon Shumaker–formerly an excellent trial judge in St. Paul, now an excellent appellate judge–as one of a group of “bearded men in black leather” supporting Coleman at a “freedom rally” sponsored by the Minnesota Motorcycle Riders’ Association.
