Forced Perspective

The online world of the Dean campaign has convinced itself that there's something big going on. Are they right?

Hmmm. The vast majority of Americans think bagging Saddam was a good thing, and that it has made them safer. Dean has mobilized most of the Americans who believe that capturing Saddam doesn't affect their security. There's no one at the campaign or in the House of Blues or on the web to say, "Ah, excuse me, but that's pretty nuts."

To everyone on the inside, it looks and feels like a majority. It feels really, really big.

It must be big. Just look at all those blogs, all those contributions, all that passion!

John Anderson, Ross Perot, and yes, even George McGovern, must be amused.
