    Flood the Zone Fridays, brought to you by Karl Rove Posted by Ezra Klein George W. Bush has a new website up, and upon seeing it, you have to admit -- this is a campaign that "gets" the web. Their website consolidates many of the tools that the Democratic challengers and their supporters have been experimenting with, and they are well implemented. Particularly impressive is their Action Center, which has one the the coolest, most useful tools I've ever seen: If you scroll about halfway down the page, you'll see a field where you can input your zip code...

Speaking before a militant audience of internet Fedayeenies at New York University, Gore condemned White House attempts to discredit Saddam by linking Saddam to al-Qaeda and 9/11, lamenting the guilt by association tack has left lasting but "false impressions" in "the public mind"...

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - One month before the second anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy, the broadcast networks seem set to change the tone of their coverage of that event from focusing on the event itself and the memorials to looking more at policy issues in the aftermath of the attacks. The exact extent of the coverage is still uncertain as the networks await to hear from New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pa., on their plans for the day, but it is highly unlikely that ABC, CBS and NBC News will repeat their 2002 menu of broad live coverage...

    • Field organization. Vice-President Al Gore may have won the 2000 New Hampshire primary — and subsequent primaries, which fed on the New Hampshire–generated momentum — thanks to a traffic jam. At least that’s what many Democratic operatives with experience in New Hampshire seem to think. Today, when people look back at the 2000 Democratic-primary season, the prevailing memory is of Gore trouncing former New Jersey senator Bill Bradley. But he beat Bradley in New Hampshire by just four points, a relatively narrow margin of 6395 votes. The bulk of these votes — more than 3000 — came from Hillsborough...

They also learned that while Democratic voters were voting in large numbers for Gore, independents, many of them upscale suburban voters, were voting for Bradley’s sophisticated brand of liberalism.” This they knew by early afternoon. Their solution? “The Gore team organized a caravan to clog highway I-93 with traffic so as to discourage potential Bradley voters from getting to the polls.”...

    Al Gore pulled an old play out of his Clinton-era book of political tricks, in an interview with the New York Observer last week. The reason he and his Democratic Party cronies are having a tough time lately, he explains, is because of a vast, right-wing media conspiracy against them. No, he didn't use exactly those words, as Hillary Clinton had six or seven years ago. But his take is pretty close. Same play, new spin.

In the latest in a string of policy speeches as he ponders another White House run in 2004, Gore cited intelligence estimates that the threat of a bioterror attack from Iraq would jump to "pretty high" after a U.S. strike on Baghdad.

    Gore's speech telling No limit to former vice president's muddle-headedness By Jonathan Shapiro There is a very great difference between avoiding a hard task on principle and shirking it for personal reasons. The courageous do the former. The selfish do the latter. In 1941, in the face of an overwhelming national consensus, Rep. Jeanette Rankin, R-Mont., an ardent opponent of fascism, nevertheless cast the lone vote against military action following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. She did so, she said, because in a democracy war should never be declared unanimously. Compare such heroism to the tawdry appeasement offered up...

In a major, hyped-in-advance speech Monday to San Francisco's Commonwealth Club, Al Gore sharply criticized the Bush administration's policy on Iraq and its prosecution of the war on terror, without offering any substantive alternatives. In doing so, he didn't just break with the president, a majority of the American public and even leading members of his party, including his running mate in 2000, who support the policies. He broke with himself,...

For without these godsends, would-be president Al Gore wouldn't merely be delivering asinine speeches to the Commonwealth Club of California, he would be making asinine policy in the White House. Lest anyone forget how tremendously fortunate we are that the election turned out exactly the way it did, Gore inadvertently provided (at least) ten examples in Monday's address.
