Noosphere Blues

[ Friday, March 12, 2004 ]

If there are Kerry strategists half as media-savvy as J.Carville was for Clinton in 92 (something I'm not at all sure about) they are hopefully all over the weird but hopeful morphing of Howard Stern into anti-Bush rabble rouser that's been going on the past few weeks. Characteristically narcissistic, but expanding from his own heavy-handed treatment by the FCC to a panoply of issues involving authoritarian right-wing onslaughts on social policy from gay mariage to stem-cell research. I've never been a Stern fan at all but what's going on right now is quite surprising. A not invalid species of Left-libertarianism in the vernacular. Can it be a heretofore unexpected mookie vote brings Bush down in Ohio, and Pa. especially.
