CONSERVATIVE FOR KERRY. I'm on deadline today, so I'll make this quick: conservative pundit Jonathan Last has a smart piece on the Weekly Standard's website on why John Kerry was "a pretty good candidate" for president. And New Republic editor-in-chief (and semi-liberal) Martin Peretz has a rant on why it was all Kerry's fault. (If you can't access Peretz's TNR piece, try this; it's pretty much the same.)
Yes, it's come to this.
