Paul Finally Gets a Point

Credit where due, since I've been so beyond disgusted with him, Paul Begala for once did not choose to take an opportunity to trash Howard Dean:
PAUL BEGALA: ...ABC News has a new poll out. Here's how they described part of President Bush's support.

The only population groups in which majorities say the president is concentrating on issues important to them are Republicans, Evangelical White Protestants, Conservatives and better off Americans.

That's even more narrow than Dean's characterization. It's just the truth.

DANA BASH: You're talking about the substance, though.

BEGALA: Right.

BASH: But the issue here also is the messenger, right?
(The crack about "substance" just makes me weep for our broken media, but that's nothing new..)
