    I can only think of one time when Mark Halperin was right.  When Obama came out for marriage equality, Halperin actually said that wouldn't hurt and may even be good for Obama.  I honestly can't remember another time when he was right.  Can anybody else?

      Damn, he just blew his otherwise perfect record. He and Bill Kristol can consoe each other with a late night phone call and lots of Chunky Monkey. Chicago Parade for Post 9/11 vets on Saturday, Dec 15th.

      that he's so naive about campaign rallies, since I figure he must have covered quite a few. They are used by ALL candidates to rev up their most enthusiastic supporters. Campaign volunteers are given close-up seats in return for a phone bank shift. He's "never seen anything like this"? I have. I could have steered him to a couple of John Kerry rallies in the Cleveland area in 2004, especially the one a few eves before election when the mall was overflowing with hundreds of thousands of people. I could have steered him to a similar rally on the mall in Cleveland in 2008 when Barack Obama appeared with Bruce Springsteen. I could have steered him to the Obama rally at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland a few weeks before the election, an event that I'm sure was very similar to any Romney rally he was at — other than the much more diverse crowd and the much more generous and inclusive speech by the candidate, that is.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
