I finally caught up with three articles that I think are pretty much must-reads, all of them reprinted at National Review Online:
1. Thomas Sowell about the problems with McCain’s age — problems we can’t pretend do not exist. (And as someone who has watched the remarkably quick aging process my bright, energetic, enthusiastic, healthy mother experienced as she neared her 80s, it’s a very important topic.)
2. Charles Krauthammer about John Edward’s angry new persona — one that completely rejects, without any explanation, just about everything he advocated during his short life as a Senator.
3. Mona Charen about Chavez’s increasingly strident anti-Semitism, and that steps he’s taken to make Venezuela Judenrein.
