My colleague Sandeep Kaushik is an eloquent and flowery writer. But don't let his writing lead you to believe he's smart. As is clear from his dreamy pontifications this week, he tends to write when he's high. Baked like a cake. Thus the floral prose--and thus the idiocy. It's becoming increasingly clear that Senator "No Bounce" Kerry will get creamed by Bush, who has ingeniously (and deceptively) played Iraq to his advantage. Kiss Moktada al-Sadr's ass, and John Kerry's presidential hopes, goodbye. --JF
