- Sullivan on Lowry on Powell -

Sullivan sees it:
Let me see if I've got this right: Powell is wrong because McCain was "desperately trying to find something that worked as his poll numbers tanked." That's Lowry's idea of leadership? Suddenly you realize why Bush went so awry. They all think like Lowry. All they care about is politics, not policy.

One is tempted to say: "duh"—except that would be to disregard the policy that drives the politics: cut taxes and hire your own.
