All bets in?
OK, whoever had 7:44 PM EDT for first staggeringly predictable "contrarian," every-scandal-is-bad-for-Dems article at Slate wins the pot.
Kaus must be off his game; his didn't run until 9:23 (damned Pacific Time Zone!)
Dickerson's angle in that first piece, BTW, is that for the scandal really to have an impact, Dems will have to play the homophobia card - that, somehow, a US Congressman (repeatedly) hitting on (many) underage pages (over the course of years) is not, in and of itself, a big enough deal. Unless you really hammer the fag angle.
Of course his real analysis is, "What would Rove do?" And then assume that he'd be right.
