BASEBALL PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP. Most everyone is talking about the Boston Red Sox 0-3, extra-inning comeback against the New York Yankees. Apparently, Bostonians think they're well on their way towards breaking the Curse. Not so fast. Jim Edmonds hit a walk-off home run to give the St. Louis Cardinals an edge over the Houston Astros in Game 6 of the NLCS, and I just finished watching the conclusion of Game 7. The Cardinals have emerged victorious to win their first NL Pennant since 1987 and they have great momentum. A team with 105 wins on the season, I look for them to give the Red Sox a run for their money. And I'll say it once again: Go Cards!!!

McKENNA IS THE MAN! So says today's Seattle Times, which has now endorsed Rob McKenna to be Washington State's next Attorney General. "McKenna has a sharp mind and solid values," says the Times in its editorial. Right on!

What a major accomplishment this is for Rob McKenna--the endorsement of the two major newspapers in Seattle. Even the media establishment understands the clear contrast between the candidates and who the best choice is.

As if THAT weren't enough, in Snohomish County, The Herald has just given their endorsement to McKenna for AG!

The momentum builds for McKenna...

KERRY LOW-CLASS COMMENTS CONTINUE. Sen. John Kerry's comments about Vice President Cheney's daughter from the final Presidential debate were indeed a low-ball attack on a candidate's family. His Campaign Manager made matters worse by calling the Vice President's daughter "fair game." And THEN it was made worse by Sen. Kerry's pathetic rationalization in which he claimed he only mentioned her because it was an example of how a family deals with such a situation. (Uh-huh, we believe you. Really.)

Comes now Ms. Heinz-Kerry, who said that our popular First Lady, Laura Bush, NEVER HELD A REAL JOB! AP (hat tip, Drudge), Hugh Hewitt and Powerline all have posts on this. Really, quite unbelievable, but not for limousine left-liberals.

Keep it up Kerrys and you'll have plenty more time to watch baseball games from Boston...we'll have the Prsident to keep throwing out the first pitches--and get them across the plate, too!

VOTER FRAUD. Yesterday's Seattle P-I published an op-ed by me entitled "Photo ID at Polls Could Prevent Fraud." The link is to the text of it--available at the Discovery Institute website.

UPDATE: I'm honored to see my op-ed mentioned at Sharkblog and The Smoking Room.
