Press the meat

After Bush's rambling, inarticulate taped interview with Tim Russert on Meet the Press, the DNC gives the appearance that they have their shit together or something with this special report called "Meet the Truth" which charts Bush's claims versus the facts. The Center for American Progress also has an annotated transcript of the interview plus a magnificent analysis available via Atrios.

Of equal interest are the items posted on National Review Online (via Calpundit) trashing Bush's performance, including such treats as this (posted by Kathryn Jean Lopez, quoting a "pundit-type" she had spoken with): "If he loses this year, this will be the day he lost it." Well, it might cause a sharper drop in his poll numbers, but I think Bush first lost it back in November of 2000, rode the wave of illusion after September 11, 2001 for about a month, and has been dropping almost constantly since that time (save for a couple of other illusory experiences).
