    Automobile Nostalgia
    Nostalgia is a popular design concept among automakers lately. First there was the Chrysler PT Cruiser. Then Ford unveiled its retro-design Thunderbird.

    And now GM enters the nostalgic car craze with this homage to 1970s automobile design.

    Peggy Reviews Dubya
    Peggy Noonan gives a mixed review of the president's press conference performance. She liked his opening statement. A lot.

    However, she was tepid about Bush's response to reporters' questions. Though in this regard, Peggy writes, "the press came to his rescue, and God bless them. They are so clearly carrying water for the left-liberal establishment, they were so clearly carrying water for the preening and partisan hacks who dominate the 9/11 commission, and the Washington Post's coverage of the news conference yesterday morning was so clearly teeing up Bob Woodward's next book, that the media nullified their hostility. "

    In other words, the president was fortunate that the reporters hissing "Are you still beating your wife"-type questions at him Wednesday night inadvertantly exposed themselves not as objective journalists but as agenda-driven anti-America leftists.

    Noonan concludes with this insight:

    More and more it seems to me Mr. Bush is not only Bill Clinton's successor but his exact opposite: Mr. Clinton perfectly poised and hollow inside, a man whose lack of compass left him unable to lead within the Oval Office but who gave a compelling public presentation of the presidency, and Mr. Bush a strong president with an obvious soul, decisive at the desk, but with no dazzling edifice. It's actually amazing that two such different men came so close together. Lucky for us, considering the history, that Mr. Bush was the one who came now.

    And that Clinton came before. And got impeached for it. (Sorry...couldn't help myself.)

    The Kerry Doctrine
    During a CNN interview this week (via the NY Times), John Kerry was asked what he would do differently in Iraq if he were president.

    Since the beginning of his presidential campaign, the generic Democrat has viciously assailed Bush's Iraq policy, recently declaring it the greatest foreign policy failure of his lifetime. Now the big moment had arrived. John Kerry was poised to announce how he would take the fight to America's terrorist enemies. This was his chance to dramatically unveil what history will surely label as "the Kerry Doctrine."

    [Drumroll, please] The senator's response to the CNN question:

    Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

    [cricket, cricket, cricket]

    Apparently, botex injections not only cause brain damage but also erosion of the backbone.

    This Could Make Her Time's 2004 Person Of The Year
    The Associated Press has itself quite a scoop: Kerry's Wife Helps Design Campaign Scarf.

    And here I always thought Teresa Heinz's only talent was marrying United States senators.
