It's killing me to be away from my computer until Sunday -- but at least here in Texas, it's Red State utopia.

From the more limited look at the news pages I've been able to take, it seems clear that Bush momentum is growing, and the Kerry campaign is beginning to flail -- sounding vaguely desperate.

Real Clear Politics has poll averages; most heartening is President Bush's 53% job approval rating in the Gallup poll. If that figure is accurate, Kerry is in trouble.

This Weekly Standard piece features an interesting tidbit from Matthew Dowd about why undecideds won't necessarily break for Kerry, as so many wishful Dems had predicted.

And this kind of silliness is why people of faith overwhelmingly tend to prefer Republicans. Tom Harkin thinks he's reached out to the religious by telling voters that Kerry has been rising in the polls (what?!) because "That's how God wants it to be." How cool is it that Senator Harkin somehow knows the mind of the Almighty? And who would have guessed that God was in favor of partial birth abortion?

As a good friend of mine is wont to say scornfully, "Whatever."

More tomorrow -- and when I return to LA, I will respond to the emails that are piling up in my box!
