Harry Truman vs. New York Review of Books

Security Dems
Speak in voice of McGovern
Claims Wall Street Journal.

"In the aftermath of Sept. 11, [. . .] voters appear to have reverted to Cold War type. During the 2002 midterm election cycle, polls found that most voters rated national security as the country's top priority, even more important than the economy. And as defense and foreign policy issues have re-emerged, so too has the Republican advantage."

Kaplan is fooling himself if he doesn't realize that voters "reverting to Cold War type" is a direct result of the Bush administration's efforts to strike fear into the citizenry.
