Will there be a backlash to Kerry's Hunting Trip?

While I almost never understand her humor, I think that Maureen Dowd is making fun of Kerry for going hunting, though she seems to find it necessary to balance it with attacks on Bush. Another piece making similar points can be found here.

Ohio GOP Responding to Fraudulent Voter Registrations: This election could be pretty amazing

"For President Kerry, Election Night Is Just a Formality"

John Fund has an interesting piece on Opinion Journal's Political Diary:

"John Kerry has told friends that Al Gore's biggest mistake in the 2000 election was his decision to not publicly position himself as the winner of the disputed Florida vote. Mr. Kerry believes that move allowed the public and media to paint Mr. Gore as a sore loser during much of the recount rather than the prospective president. The Kerry campaign isn't going to make that mistake again. They have assembled recount teams in every swing state, complete with dozens of lawyers on call. And while recounts and court challenges to disputed vote totals are played out, the Kerry camp plans to quickly name a national security team and other transition officials if the election is at all in doubt. . . . "While possession of the presidency is important, we plan to take lots of steps to show we are ready to take office on Day One if the election goes into overtime and a final winner is delayed," a Kerry foreign policy adviser told me."

Is Soros (or someone connected to him) manipulating the Presidential futures contracts ?

Donald Luskin has a post where he claims that Soros is trading in futures contracts to try convincing people that Bush won't win. Well, I guess if the Democratic Party is willing to openly try manipulating the online polls right after the debates, this is not much different. Hopefully, Soros will lose a few more dollars betting the wrong way. It makes me want to get into the betting.

A conservative movie from Pixar and Disney?

The buzz out of early screenings is that "The Incredibles," set to be released Nov. 5, carries a considerably more middle-American sensibility than the usual fare from Hollywood, where liberal shibboleths often become the stuff of mainstream movies. The new movie's hero, Bob Parr, a k a Mr. Incredible, after all, has been driven into middle-aged retirement and the Superhero Relocation Program by a flood of lawsuits brought by personal-injury lawyers representing people Mr. Incredible has saved but who later complain of things like neck problems. Mr. Incredible's 10-year-old son, Dash, is blessed with super speed but is forced to conceal it from his unknowing peers at school - until, that is, he complains that he is being held back by the "everyone is special" ethic, which holds that kids should receive a trophy just for showing up on the playing field.
