Two From TomPaine

TomPaine.com(mon sense) was one of the first on-line political journals I read on-line way back in 1999, and have always enjoyed it, even though it does lack a certain sense of humor – and I never really feel comfortable with anything that seems to take itself too seriously. That said, TomPaine.com often has interesting articles that go beyond the punditry, and this week they offer a couple that are worth sharing:

The Dean You Don’t Know by Steven Rosenfeld on the influence on Howard Dean of the fiscal policies of the late Republican Gov. Richard Snelling of Vermont, for whom Dean served as Lieutenant Governor;

Sleeping with the Enemy by David Corn, who wonders “[w]hy do the Democrats insist on helping the Bush camp win its fights?” Good question.

May I be so bold as to suggest that you bookmark TomPaine.com and check it out on a regular basis.
