Convention wrap-up

  • Boing?
     
  • Here’s the President’s speech: watch it or read it. By contrast, Kerry’s midnight rally was shrill and off-kilter. Perhaps he needs some outside advice.
     
  • The newest job numbers from the Labor Department came out today, and they’re mildly good. We’re up 144,000 jobs in August.
     
  • More anecdotal evidence that Zell Miller’s speech worked. Jonah Goldberg weighs in.
     
  • Hugh Hewitt looks at how the Kerry campaign now spends all its time reacting to events instead of taking the initiative. Pay close attention to the concepts of “swarming” and “OODA loops”, which sound a bit esoteric but make a lot of sense when you look at how Kerry’s opponents (Bush/Cheney, the SwiftVets, Zell Miller) have Kerry running around in circles. I’d forgotten the OODA angle, but I do agree with Hugh’s observations.
