Speaking of dullness, it's tiresome to see the "hate-the-trial-lawyers" meme pop up again in not only Cockburn's screed but also in Ms. Pollitt's recent anti-Edwards piece. Insurance-industry propaganda works in mysterious ways its wonders to perform. To those who've bought into it, I suggest you try representing yourself the next time an insurer (and its public-spirited lawyers) denies your claim.
With all due respect, I tend to give more weight to Ralph Nader's endorsement of Edwards than to Cockburn's pally fluff about Huckabee. A thrice-pure lefty suckered by an Arkansas theocrat! Now that's entertainment.
