Summing Up

justinB in a DKos diary sums up how the race has gone so far:
Dean pulls out in front, and is the one to beat.
Everybody beats on Dean.
Kerry copies Dean's message
Folks in IA don't vote for Dean, 'cause he's a wife beating abortionist.
Folks in NH vote for Kerry 'cause the folks in IA did.

Is this for real? Are we really going to nominate someone who's chief accomplishment is appropriating the message and strategy of someone else? Sheesh.
(For the Google searchers who might come across this entry in search for dirt on Dean. No, you nimwits, Dean is neither a wife-beater nor an abortionist. It was a sarcastic reference to the slime campaign used in pushpolls against him in Iowa.)
